FAILED - November 2011
The City wanted ARK'S valuable downtown building adjacent to its impending bus station. The raid was hatched behind closed doors by taxpayers' employees: Manager Michael Pleus, Asst. Manager Dale Arrington, Code Staff Matt Adair and Michelle Realander, Cops Chief Bill Ridgeway, Randel Henderson, and Yohana Sanchez plus a multitude of minions.
Deputy Chief Randel Henderson viciously reported to the West Volusia Beacon and making fun of the anxiety cats suffered while ruthless cops chased them around their luxury suite, cats vomiting, diarrhea everywhere: “...We were jokingly calling the officers corralling the cats ‘cat wranglers.’ I would love to see the video.”
If you can't explain why someone does something EVIL FOLLOW THE MONEY. That's what ARK volunteers did, spending a year requesting over 300 documents through the Florida Sunshine Law from the City of DeLand. The story of the corrupt city's illegal raid on ARK is frightening and long. It takes several hours to read but the first 10 pages reveal the corruption and evil intent of city employees.
The raid had absolutely nothing to do with "animal abuse." Read the story in its entirety to learn why the State's Attorney tossed the claim of ANIMAL CRUELTY! ARK never harmed an animal and never skipped a beat from the day of the raid forward as it continues saving thousands of lives and receiving thousands in donations.
