Last month, assistant animal control officer Jamie Glandon discovered a puppy alive in the shelter’s freezer, four days after it supposedly had been euthanized. She says she told her boss, who ordered her to have it euthanized again. She refused and instead took the animal, a 4-month-old mastiff-shepherd mix named Gabby (left), to a vet. Later she took Gabby to a rescue group, where she’s recovering.
For her compassion, Glandon, a 26-year-old mother of four, was reprimanded and placed on paid leave.
Even cooler, Gabby’s collar is being auctioned on eBay to help raise funds.
In the meantime, a Web site has been set up to raise money for Glandon’s legal fees.
