CALDWELL - An investigation into the financial practices of the West Valley Humane Society has returned no evidence of criminal wrongdoing.
In a meeting with Canyon County commissioners Monday, independent auditor Denise McClure revealed that while her investigation found no evidence of embezzlement or donation-skimming, there was plenty of evidence of poor bookkeeping practices.
McClure said those poor practices led to a up to a $60,000 impact on the animal shelter's bottom line. She added that her investigation also found several wiped computers and missing donation acknowledgement letters that prevented her from verifying some of the shelter's finances.
In February 2016, the shelter's executive director, Jonathan Perry, was fired after the shelter says they learned he lied to a family whose dog was euthanized.
