The Schdy County SPCA pushed passage of the Vicious Dog Control Act which entitles them to the proceeds of fines for SPCA enforcement of dog licensing laws. This includes reimbursement of costs for sheltering animals. This was supposed to be the great solution to the 'vicious dog' problem. The SPCA doesn't seem to be enforcing anything related to licensing and they still have no shelter. The SPCA and the County passed this sweetheart deal after the SPCA sued the Sheriff. The law made the SPCA contractors of the County if they would drop their lawsuit. I still can't figure out how any of this is legal. Are they really going to renew this for 2013? Here is a link to the law they passed http://www.nylj.com/nylawyer/adgifs/deci...

Most of the cost of housing strays at local shelters is not reimbursed by the City and is covered by the shelters through their operating budgets (i.e., donors). With passage of the Vicious Dog Control Act, the Schdy SPCA gets a portion of licensing costs and other fees for the housing of strays (even though they have no operating shelter). The City and the Schdy SPCA need to get a viable plan to address their legal responsibility toward housing strays and not put more burden on those groups that are actually providing these critical services and getting little back but criticism.

A "regional search"?! Dean is a paid employee at Tully's law firm - as are most SPCA volunteers and board members. Tully just goes through his payroll report to drum up 'volunteers'? So much for organizational ethics and independent oversight. Wouldn't expect anything but that from Tully. A lawyer should understand this stuff.
