I have been monitoring the Lincoln County Website for the last few  months. I have been doings so for a number of reasons not the least of which for a good laugh. There is nothing more pathetic than lazy incompetent people, paid to do a job that just cannot get their act together and DO THE JOB! For months, the LCHS website has been comprised of old articles, even older “Happy Tails”, these are stories of happy kitty adoptions for 2010. There are the results of an adopt a thon from 2011 and my personal favourite the advertisement for the 2010 Wag A Thon. Better mark my calendar, don’t want to miss that little puppy! It would appear Management was buying into the Mayan Calendar theory and figured updating was just not a priority! Then nor is saving lives so, what the hell.

The first inkling that Management even knew a website existed was when the front page of the Website was changed from “Lincoln County Humane Society is an open admission shelter” to “The Lincoln County Humane Society is a charitable not-for-profit organization”. It has since been changed again to, are you ready….. wait for it…….”The LCHS is an open-admission For Life Organization” What the heck is that when it is at home? No coincidence here, just check out the OSPCA website and go to Backgrounder and you will find….. are you ready….wait for it……

“What is the Animal Welfare Philosophy of the Ontario SPCA? The Ontario SPCA is an open admission, For Life, organization; we strive to accept all animals.”  click here for the entire OSPCA backgrounder on No Kill et al. Any and all similarities to the LCHS rhetoric is totally intentional and a perfect example of the complete lack of originality and the limited intelligence of the LCHS Management and B of D.

Given the events of December 19th, I have been watching the website for the inevitable “changes” and sure enough those clever little campers  did not disappoint.

I reiterate, they do not disappoint, best laugh yet. In his excitement in announcing the ousting of Tom Manney former Vice President and Grace Pang former Secretary, Management left a little detail unattended.  Just another example of the complete lack of attention to detail, poor record keeping, utter disregard for facts that has been reflected so many times previously in animal statistics, finances, fund raising and coordination of memberships. As Bugs Bunny so affectionately referred to Elmer Fudd “what a marroon”

What a Marroon!

What a Marroon!

Now, may I remind you dear readers of the events of October 19th, when Annie Fannie Davidson, advised those in attendance at the B of D  meeting , albeit in a whisper, that ALL outstanding membership applications are deferred until, well I don’t know when, maybe until hell freezes over or the sun rises in the west or someone  on the B of D develops a conscience. No, that will never happen. Anyway, so all of the outstanding membership applications have been deferred so that the By Laws can be reviewed. Annie Fannie herself, stated that she agreed the application process was too restrictive and that sponsoring by a board member may be a bit over the top. Then WHY I ask you, WHY is the same old Membership Application on line at this very writing. Wouldn’t a prudent, relatively intelligent, half ways responsible ED and or B of D, have the application removed from the website? DUH!

Here it is, read it and weep, laugh, whatever…….

Be sure to note the last paragraph, that is the side splitter.

I’m interested! What do I do now? (complete the application, pay $50. and wait and wait and wait and wait and then be ignored, deferred or just plain denied)

The first step in the process of becoming a member of Lincoln County Humane Society is to complete our “Membership Application”.
