Animal Control Responds to Wrongful Discipline Allegations
Cobb County officials respond to a Letter to the Editor published Thursday that alleges wrongful disciplinary action against an animal control employee.
Cindy Ganues, an Animal Care Specialist of Cobb County Animal Control, has allegedly been disciplined twice for removing euthanasia-bound animals from the shelter during her days off.
Robert Quigley, Director of Cobb County Communications, would not confirm or deny disciplinary action and told Northeast Cobb Patch, "The county doesn't discuss disciplinary measures with the public concerning an employee."
Quigley added that the county does not prohibit animal control employees from working with rescue groups.
He would not discuss the details of disciplinary action brought against Ganues.
Ganues could not be reached for comment.
Ganues faces a 40-hour suspension for allegedly organizing a rescue group to remove shelter cats scheduled for euthanasia during a recent day off work.
