DSC_0065The Chester County SPCA has news: New Executive Director hired!!!   Emily Simmons, formerly of PSPCA, starting Monday. Also a new Operations Manager!   her name is Danielle Ball starting Monday.

I see this as incredibly positive given the recent current events at the shelter, so I would say the new board members are taking their duties seriously.

I look forward to posting MORE good news. And no, that is not a rescued chicken. It is merely a chicken I photographed recently. We all know I have chicken issues….

With 16 new members and a hefty list of accusations and controversies to address, the new Chester County SCPA board will be holding its first meeting today.

One new board member said that change has already started at the CCSPCA and more will be coming soon.

According to Tom Hickey Sr., a new board member, the shelter “has a lot of problems” and the new board will be looking at ways to solve them. Already this past week, Hickey said the shelter has hired a new kennel manager, one of many changes he’s hoping to bring.

“I believe we have an obligation that we have to do everything possible to protect the animals,” said Hickey.
