Centerplate Will Make Dog-Abusing CEO Volunteer At Dog Shelter

Stadium caterer Centerplate announced that it is forcing Desmond Hague to donate $100,000 to form a charity called the Sade Foundation "in honor of the dog he mistreated in the elevator." The company is also requiring that he serve 1,000 hours of community service working with "an organization that serves to protect the welfare and safety of animals" as a condition to his continued employment with the company.

This all sounds wonderful, but then you remember that the guy repeatedly kicked a dog, and used its leash like a noose, so maybe he should give the money to a local shelter, stay away from the animals, and spend those 1,000 hours making license plates or something.


The SCPA has taken custody of Sade and if the owner (who very well may be Hague) does not file an appeal by next Thursday, it will be available for adoption.
