After Dog-Abuse Incident, Station Raises Funds


Sheila and Marconi from Alpha's 101.9 (KINK-FM) in Portland have opened a GoFundMe account to raise money for the Oregon Humane Society. Des Hague, the CEO for a company called Centerplate, was videotaped assaulting his own dog. Centerplate?s board fined him $100,000 and ordered a thousand hours of community service, but the morning team (pictured here) says that's basically sweeping this issue under the rug.

Sheila and Marconi said, ?We?d like to raise $10,000 from dog and cat lovers everywhere who find this kind of behavior despicable and unacceptable. It will send a message to Centerplate Concessions that a $100,000 fine for a guy who makes $11.7 million a year is just a slap on the wrist. People in power shouldn?t be able to buy their way out of abuse.?
