Great email Jane! I am hopeful you have a good response from the Sheriff. They can't just let this go by, it's serious and it's inhuman. We'll be eager to know how they respond.

Tomorrow will be a week and I have had no response! Very disappointing.

Susan Leavens Lowndes Co. Animal Control Officer

Mrs. Osborn,
Thank you so much for your support. The County manager and several county employees interviewed all the workers after a drug screen was conducted on all employees back in late august of 2010. Several (4) employees advised the people conducting the investigation (Joe Prichard, Mickey Tillman, Page Dukes and Suzanne Pittman) of the charges brought to the Department of Agriculture. From the smothering of cats, to inhumane treatment and lack of vet care, I placed a statement along with another employee and a previous employee. I have nor will I ever discredit Lowndes County's Animal Shelter. After the meeting we (all shelter employees) were made to sign a memo stating we could not go to any outside agency for help Georgia Dept. Agri., GBI. FBI ect. They keep saying I brought the dog into the shelter it was officer Bozeman, I did not; I was on light duty because I had a shoulder injury. I wished these matters would be looked into in the form of an outside investigation. Thank you so much for your forwarded letter to the Sheriff. I do have open records to support what I have stated along with photo's; I am disappointed these matters are being swept under the rug... I keep hearing I'm a disgruntle employee... that is untrue I am disgusted that their making cruelty and neglect and inhumane treatment unimportant.

S. Leavens
