DOGS BEING SHOT BY ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER!!
- HELP US STOP THIS!!


I need your help!!  In the City of Charleston MO, the ACO (animal control officer) has been shooting his dogs to euthanize.  He is doing this, even though a rescue person was taking his dogs and getting them to rescues up north.


Apparently since April he has only given the rescue 1 dog.  The rest have been shot and dumped in a hole.  I know this because a young man was parked in his car on the road when the ACO (truck) drove down that road and turned onto a smaller road, he had a dog in the back of the truck.  The young man sitting in his auto heard two shots, then saw the ACO turn off that road, and NO dog was in the back.  The young man drove down that road and looked around, he found the hole with many dog bodies in it, all shot.


This is not permitted!!  The ACO is Josh Mc Kinney, and this is not the first time we have received complaints on him, but it is the first time a witness spoke out on it.


Josh McKinney is a pastor of a church in Bertrand MO.  How can anyone claim to be a pastor, and shoot dogs when they have rescue taking the animals.  Josh needs to be fired from the city job ASAP.


Please help me by contacting the City of Charleston and protesting Josh working there and now allowing any more ACO's to shoot their animals.   


Below are the contact phone numbers and fax numbers.
