WHEATFIELD, N.Y. (WIVB) - The results are hard to swallow for the the Niagara County SPCA and its board members. News 4 spoke to the shelter's attorney about what happens next.
When Attorney Paul Cambria began working for the Niagara County SPCA, he took on a mission to find what was wrong with the organization and make it right, no matter who might be offended by it.
"They hired us to be independent, to participate in the review, to call it the way we saw it. We're recommending some wholesale changes," said Cambria.
Proposed changes include a new mission statement, standard operating protocols, job descriptions and bylaws.
Cambria said, "A number of these recommendations that Barbara has made need to be implemented."
While Barbara Carr with the Erie County SPCA conducted an investigation, which you can read in full here, Cambria concentrated on the leadership structure in Wheatfield.
"We indicated to the board, that we think that once a new board is constituted, that a determination has to be made who stays and who goes," said Cambria.
While Cambria's office says it's reserving comment on a commitment to being a no-kill shelter, he says they'll be consulting veterinarians from Cornell University. He admits it's an emotional topic.
Cambria, "There are people who have strong feelings about the way animals should be handled."
And he says the SPCA needs to rebuild the trust of the people they serve.
"Have this advisory committee, have participation by the community, and to have them on, if you will, on site, seeing what's going on," said Cambria.
