Olympic Animal Sanctuary needs to close its doors!!!

A group of us on the coast of Washington would love to offer help to the sanctuary. He was just interviewed the other night on KOMO 4 news. He has admitted to only being able to feed the dogs every other day ~ if he could answer his phone and put up a good email, we would take him food and straw for bedding. Rescuing an animal that would otherwise be euthanized does not give us the right to keep them in a small cage or crate and not feed, water, and clean. What doing that says is that we're...

What doing that says is that we're no better than the situation the 120 dogs were in before going there.

Dear God in Heaven! How would Markwell, the Mayor of Forks, or the politicians like living like those poor, helpless dogs. I have Facebooked our Gov. Inslee and Rep. Tharinger. I have e-mailed the Mayor of Forks and Councilwoman Juanita W. , as well as the Doris Day Animal Rescue. I have also e-mailed a local rescue group, Pasado's Safe Haven and they responded that the plight of the dogs in Forks is being investigated. Has anyone thought about a mass rally by the public (legally) might...

I too, have sent emails to all of these so called humans, NO REPLY, so WHAT about DHEC, unsanitary, run off of urine, feces into streams, water supply for humans, other animals who drink out of the streams that may be polluted/contaminated with bacteria from this place.

What are the laws in WA concerning animal abuse? Is it a criminal matter? If so a searce should be easy based on probable cause - What about any EPA regulations? The powers that be should be able to freely investigate any facility producing the wastes ( and toxic they are, just look at any city sanitation facilities regulations and the reasons for the rules) How about OSHA? Are there not federal laws governing what the public can be exposed to? ; If -as seems likely- the waste is not...

Are there not federal laws governing what the public can be exposed to? ; If -as seems likely- the waste is not being disposed of properly and the facilities not being cleaned the health hazards are staggering. What about Zoning Laws? .... and how about the IRS is this "sanctuary" LEAGALLY a Not-For-Profit?, There are many FEDERAL regulations

governing everything that Hell, maybe we can get an IRS investigator in there. I have so many questions and I am totally willing to acknowledge that there is a possibility that there is smoke caused by friction not fire (although from the reading and cross-checking I have done so far I think there is a MAJOR CONFLAGRATION behind the "smoke" There should be national attention in the media on this issue. THIS IS TOTALLY INSANE there have actually been complaints files against this issue for over two years? What the hell is going on?

This place Must be shut Down! These dogs are living in frigin misery! Everyday! Every minute! WTF is wrong with this dude? And law enforcement? What he is doing is simply despicable! People, I urge u to view the photos and read up on the stories each of these babies has, and then ask yourself, what am I going to do about it? People, we MUST BE THEIR VOICES! Lets get busy!

I don't usually talk like this but what in the hell? Are these enforcement officials all blind, from a different planet or getting paid off by someone? Really! Who the eff cares how old the pics are. If you go in to find even one animal in something like this you get that animal out as well as the rest so it can't happen to them. You can't tell me they even reached out to the community to help as i am sure there would be people helping out. Just disgusting that this can go on. And...

And people wonder where the teens get the stuff they do now days. Do you think they just wake up and do it without seeing someone else do it and get away with it. The Officials that do not get these babies out of there are just as much to blame as the person doing this to them! Unfrigginbelieveable! You should be ashamed!!!!

I have one question for all that signed this how many of you have seen this for yourselves all the dogs in oas were going to be killed this guy saved them it might not be a ideal place but its better than being dead until you see it for yourself and know the whole story don't judge

It is no life to live in a filthy cramped cage and be fed only 3 times a week.

Agree with Pat Arden Volk. None of these dogs have had any vet care; they could be injured, be in pain, and we not know because Markwell won't allow inspections or visitors on his property. Being fed every other day, drinking out of green slimy bowls or not getting any water, and not getting out of those cramped crates is a life of hell. He's not saving them. He's a hoarder. A reputable 501(c)(3) allows visitors and inspections.

better than being dead? Living in filth, crated in spaces too small, starved. Not so sure about that!
