CCAC President Emily Sadler maintained that neither she nor any members of CCAC have lied about the county shelter. “We’ve kept our mouths shut for a long time,” she said by phone, “but we just can’t do it anymore. Some of the practices at the shelter may be legal, but they’re not ethical.”
Kielty continued her email comments, “Let me clarify that Catoosa Citizens
for Animal Care has done amazing, hard work for our Animal Control in aiding the adoption of hundreds of animals. CCAC and Catoosa County Animal Control have had an efficient working relationship for several years and it was a hard decision for us to sever ties with the organization.

Sadler said that issues with the shelter have existed for a long time. “We overlooked the way some of our volunteers were
treated and things we felt were wrong so we could get animals to safety. As soon as some of us started to speak out, the county came down on us and then we were out.”

She was preceded in death by her father, Wendell McDaniel, and father-in-law, Arby Wright, Sr.
Survivors include her husband of thirty years, Robert Manuel
non-profit organizations. This decision was not easy, however it was entirely necessary.”
On CCAC’s part, Sadler said she’s happy to see the county shelter has started its own Facebook page. “It takes a lot of burden off us. We were posting hundreds of pictures of animals from the shelter, and we work with many other shelters, too. It was about time. Almost every shelter in Georgia has a Facebook page. I hope they can keep it up and it saves the lives of animals. In the end, that’s all that matters.”
