CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) — One of the volatile topics likely to come up at tonight's St. Louis County Council meeting: the Animal Care and Control Shelter. KMOX News has learned by this Saturday, the volunteer staff will be gone.
Spring Schmidt the acting director of the Health Department defended the upheaval because of what the audit of the shelter revealed. "We're not ending the volunteer program. And, under no circumstances should anyone have used the words terminated or fired, in any way that any volunteer should have been addressed."
