SPCA working to fix its problems
Thursday, June 10, 2004

We're glad to see the state Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals 
doing what it can to ensure animal safety comes first - even if that means 
disbanding county SPCAs.

Last month, the state-level society notified the Burlington, Middlesex, 
Bergen and Passaic County SPCAs that their law enforcement powers were being 
revoked."They simply don't have the manpower and the wherewithal to handle 
investigators and make the required monthly reports," New Jersey SPCA lawyer Jay Joseph 
Friedrich said.

The moves come after the SPCA, a privately run group granted law enforcement 
powers in animal cruelty cases, was on the receiving end of a very critical 
report by the State Commission of Investigation.

It's good to see the society is doing its best to correct problems from 
within. We wish the group the best in continuing its important mission.
