Over the past few months Center Broadcasting has aired a news story, done public service announcements and fielded several phone calls, both on air and off concerning JNL Animal Rehabilitation and Rescue Services in Joaquin.
We knew from speaking with founder Lacey Griffin she was having a tough time financially supporting her intended good efforts.
Unfortunately, an article that appeared in The Light and Champion newspaper last Friday revealed that those possible good intentions had not gone well.
We learned that some 20 animals had to be removed by outside sources living in what was described as "deplorable" conditions.
The story said there was no visible care being provided for the animals and several were found starving and in serious need of healthcare. There was even one dog found dead.
We just wanted to "clear the air" and let those that heard our stories and may have responded to the information we provided know we were in no way trying to direct you in the wrong direction.
From the information we received, Ms. Griffin was at the time, legitimately trying to make this animal rescue work for the good of the animal and citizens of Shelby County.
