OMG.. Can anything be worse than adopting an animal, falling in love, making it a part of your Family and Holiday (with photos) and then having it DIE in a matter of days?!

Adopted our dog from the Baytown Animal Control just over 2 weeks ago...
Spent over $800. getting it fixed, shots, etc. and then extended treatment for an illness which, ultimately, turned out to be DISTEMPER... and had to bury that dog today!

(Our first dog- also from this shelter, had active HEARTWORMS,(Not disclosed before adoption) but, thankfully, was able to recover with $1,500. in treatment-)

Has anyone else had this type of experience with this shelter?

I think it's OUTRAGEOUS and something needs to be done to prevent other people from suffering the heartbreak and wasted expenses this has caused us!!

Please let me know as this situation may call for a class-action lawsuit...

Howdy cuz you sound like you would love and take care of an animal and if you have not gotten another pup I have one that I am trying to find a good and loving home for. She is 6 months old and part pom and part chihuahua but looks all pom. I just moved to the Baytown area and I can not afford nor care for her any more.

We adopted a puppy at Baytown Animal Shelter 2 weeks ago and now it looks like he has distemper. Soooo sad for my family. The puppy is so sick and heartbreaking to see. Like you we are out almost $500.
