Charges were filed yesterday against the Director and Assistant Director of the troubled Helmetta Animal Shelter.

The troubled animal shelter was closed over a month ago after Michal and Richard Cielesz voted to suspend both of them without pay and file charges against them. The shelter has been the target of accusations and controversy by animal advocates for quite some time, citing poor management and animal cruelty.

Some of the animals that were removed sadly, were in such poor health, that they had to be put down.

If there were this many issues with the animal shelter, are we really to believe that only the Cielesz's were to blame for all this poor management? No one else is to blame here?

One would think that there are more people to blame here and that should be held accountable for the mistreatment of these animals.
