UNNECESSARILY AND WORKERS COMPLAINTS ARE BEING IGNORED. THAT’S ACCORDING TO PROTESTERS WHO RALLIED AT THE HAWAIIAN HUMANE SOCIETY TODAY. MANOLO MORALES HAS MORE. MANOLO? MANOLO: PROTESTERS INCLUDE FORMER AND CURRENT EMPLOYEES WHO SAY THERE’S A TOXIC WORK ENVIRONMENT AT THE HUMANE SOCIETY. AND THEY WANT THE BOARD TO CONDUCT A THIRD PARTY INVESTIGATION. ABOUT 50 PEOPLE WAVED SIGNS FRONTING THE HAWAIIAN HUMANE SOCIETY CALLING THEMSELVES PEOPLE FOR ANIMALS FIRST. SARAH WORTH SAYS SHE WAS FIRED FOR SAVING HUNDREDS OF KITTENS WHICH SHE SAYS WERE BEING KILLED ONLY BECAUSE THEY WEIGHED LESS THAN A POUND AND A HALF. SARAH WORTH, PEOPLE FOR ANIMALS FIRST: “SO I HAD A NETWORK OF VETTED FOSTER FAMILIES THAT WERE WILLING TO TAKE THESE KITTENS IN, BRING THEM UP TO WEIGHT GET THEM THE TREATMENT THEY NEEDED AND THEN BRING THEM BACK TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY WHEN THEY’RE READY TO BE ADOPTED.” JANA MOORE WORKED AT HHS IN THE FALL OF LAST YEAR IN WHAT SHE THOUGHT WAS A DREAM JOB. SHE LEFT AFTER THREE MONTHS. JANA MOORE, PEOPLE FOR ANIMALS FIRST: “IF YOU LOOK UP THE DEFINITION OF TOXIC WORK ENVIRONMENT THAT’S BASICALLY WHAT I SAW HERE THERE WAS LYING THERE WAS PITTING EMPLOYEES AGAINST EACH OTHER THERE WAS FAVORITISM AND BASICALLY DISCOURAGING OF PEOPLE SHARING IDEAS.” A SPOKESWOMAN SAYS NO ONE WAS AVAILABLE TO COMMENT BUT SHE SAYS KITTENS UNDER A POUND AND A HALF ARE NOT AUTOMATICALLY EUTHANIZED. SHE ALSO SENT A PRE-TAPED INTERVIEW DONE BY A PUBLIC RELATIONS FIRM TO ADDRESS THE ALLEGATIONS. DRSEKASEY CARTER, HHS CHIEF VETERINARIAN: “WE EUTHANIZE ONLY SEVERE MEDICAL OR SEVERE BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS FOR ANIMALS THERE’S NO SPACE OR TIME LIMITS WE DON’T EUTHANIZE AN ANIMAL BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH SPACE.” MANOLO: AS FOR THE WORKPLACE CONCERNS THE HUMANE SOCIETY’S BOARD CHAIRMAN, BOB ARMSTRONG SENT A STATEMENT SAYING A THIRD PARTY WILL INVESTIGATE AND THE BOARD WILL CONDUCT AN ORGANIZATIONAL ASSESSMENT.
