Punish Financial Officer Who Allegedly Stole From Animal Shelter

Target: Shawn Sant, Prosecuting Attorney for Franklin County, Washington

Goal: Seek maximum penalty for chief financial officer (CFO) accused of stealing from an animal shelter.

Julie Chambers, the CFO of the Tri-Cities Animal Shelter, has been accused of stealing $300,000 dollars from the non-profit to buy herself a home and pay off credit cards. Chambers is currently facing two felony charges in Franklin County: first-degree theft and money laundering. Days later, dozens of reportedly neglected or abused dogs and cats were removed from the shelter.

The money Chambers allegedly stole was taken after a donation of $545,000 came from the estate of a retired railroad engineer. The money was meant for a new building; her defense lawyer claims that she was owed the money and therefore no crime was committed. She allegedly provided a boost of her own money when the non-profit was started, and therefore was owed the money when the organization had the funds to reimburse her. The shelter director told investigators that Chambers did not have permission to withdraw the funds.

Theft from an animal shelter of all places, stealing from animals who desperately need it, is an abuse of power. Sign below and demand that, if found guilty, Julia Chambers faces the maximum penalty possible.


Dear Prosecuting Attorney Sant,

Julia Chambers, the CFO of Tri-Cities Animal Shelter, is currently facing charges of first-degree theft and money laundering. The money that she allegedly stole was intended for malnourished and needy animals and her main defense directly contradicts the testimony of the shelter director.

Julia Chambers should face the maximum penalty possible if she is found guilty on both charges that she is accused of. Please, seek justice for these innocent animals.
