Appalachian Animal Rescue Center? What does this latest name change mean to the Macon County Humane Society?
Some time in 2000 the Macon County Humane Society became a No Kill shelter, and had a name change. And now another name change? The questions I would like answers to, “Is the Appalachian Animal Rescue Center still considered a branch of the Macon County Humane Society?” “Is the treatment of animals any different under the new name?” and “What is the benefit of the new name?”
The shelter director states the county does not fund the Shelter. As a consequence of the No Kill policy, the county built and staffs a county pound. This is indirectly funding the humane society.
An open meeting to educate the public on this recent name change and what it means would be beneficial.
