Camden County and the local Humane Society have ended their collaboration, according to The Brunswick News.
Seth Collins, Camden County’s deputy county administrator, said the only requested change in the new agreement was for county representation to be added to the board of directors. He pointed out the county was the Humane Society’s primary funding source.
“It’s what we were hoping for so we could have increased transparency and accountability,” he said. “It would have led to more understanding on the ground level. They decided against that.”
Dave Brown, the Humane Society’s president, said the county’s proposal was to have a majority of county officials on the organization’s board of directors.
“They tried to stack the board,” Brown said. “This was a counter offer two days after we signed an agreement for the upcoming fiscal year.”
Camden County was unprepared for the Humane Society to cancel its long-time agreement with the county, which was paying $14,000 for the shelter’s services.
The Humane Society shelter is now no kill, but it is very selective in the animals they accept. No strays or animals captured by animal control officers are accepted.
