Former Coffeyville Friends of Animals employees make allegations of inhumane practices at the shelter. Those allegations include improperly disposing of euthanized animals and euthanizing puppies and kittens that weren't sick. CFA Board Chairman Becky Barnhart read a statement on behalf of the board.
The Kansas Department of Agriculture oversees animal shelters and does yearly inspections. The KDA did an inspection in May at CFA and the only complaint was rust on kennel runs both inside and outside. A complaint has been filed with the KDA and it is being looked into. KGGF has filed an open records request to the KDA for any information on the complaint or inspections.
