Mr. Mohler states that volunteers with ulterior motives were taking opportunistic photographs. It is possible. However, since those photos were published, cleanliness as well as access to fresh water and food have improved for the pets housed in the shelter. A few pets have been adopted, and some have returned home. Would that have come about without the photos? I doubt it. But Mr. Mohler should know something about staged photographs. Last spring, after the conditions at the shelter garnered public attention, the county spruced up one corner of the shelter with fresh paint and detergent and then invited the press to visit. They did not tour the entire shelter. The administrative hold animals in particular are still seriously wanting for better care and conditions.
