I've filled out the form 18 and given a verbal and written statement. I'm supposed to get a copy of my xrays and a copy of the restrictions and limitations from the the doctor.

So sorry for this, but I flew through reading these posts in my anger about that cat in the cage, so I'm not sure if this was mentioned before. ASPCA would like to see that cat picture you posted, and I don't know the NC animal control laws, but there's enough there (just with the cat) for criminal charges in some states.

Also, about the smell; I know it's hard to quantify smells, but I've never been in an "animal place" (Shelter, kennel, etc...) where my first thought wasn't "Ugh, this place stinks." I'm not defending what they've got going on in there, just pointing out my experience.

I hope this all works out for you first, and for all the animals they are responsible of caring for in a close second. Please do realize that not all places that care for animals are like this, and down the road, if you enjoy the work, hopefully you can find a better one.

call OSHA anonymously- you're protected by whistleblower laws if you do give your name. But OSHA will show up with a phone call. Especially if you tell them, "Someone here was attacked by a dog and Workers Comp paperwork was weeks behind..." or something to that effect.

I'm on the Board of Directors for our local SPCA chapter and have a vested interest in kennel construction and maintenance, among other things. I'm in VA, but very close to the NC border if you're in fact in NC. I might could make a few calls and find out what can be done, who is actually the governing body over the place.

If you PM me I'll give you my personal email- if you would consider emailing me the pics you used in this thread, I'll start making some calls.

No amount of workers comp is worth working in that shithole.

I'd be tempted to bail, release the hounds, and burn it to the ground.

So I've downloaded all the pics you posted, complete with descriptions. I can make a couple calls and start the ball rolling on whatever needs to be done. The question is, are you willing to do the right thing?

Your health, as well as other employees and the animals is being jeopardized with the mold and moisture issues- not to mention waste- as you breath mold spores and bacteria all day long.

Growing grass on the roof and they wonder why the ceilings are caving in?

Seriously, LisaG, PM me the address of the place- if you PM me, I'll never know your name if that's an issue for you. Have someone else PM me or do something, but don't continue to turn a blind eye toward the animals and the people who are likely suffering who knows what kind of symptoms with all the garbage air they're breathing.

I'd be on the front door step tomorrow if I knew who/what/where.

I heard today that this place passed the county inspection a few months ago. AAHA is coming for their inspection next Wednesday.

Another one of my coworkers payroll check bounced.

They issued me another check today but I'm afraid it will bounce too. I might just be working for this place for free for all I know.

Yeah. Its definitely one of the harder things I've had to do in my life. I'm a little bit anxious about how it's going to play out once the poo starts flying.

I might need to sell tickets to cover my missing payroll.

NO JUST HOLD ONTO YOUR PAYROLL STUBS LIKE TEY WERE GOLD If they bounce a good lawyer can turn the personal suffering aspect into alot (depends on how good he is) Otherwise do not qiut if they fire you then you get more cash in the lawsuit and they have to pay you until you fnd a job.
Unemployment is rough out there why let them off the hook?
