Too little, too late Diane. You and Rushing have once again given the city of Caruthersville a black eye. Did your bobbleheads call the Humane Society and apologize? Was it really worth trying to cover your asses? I honestly don't think the bobbleheads and their leader thought the citizens of Cville cared enough about the Humane Society and the good they did, to put up a fuss. Surprise. Maybe you would do better to not listen to Rushing so much.

Story says that Rick is just filling in until they hire someone. Another bobble head would be my guess. If not they won't last long.

I bet that they didn't fire her. I bet they just moved her somewhere else like they did Rick years ago. The Mayor for some reason likes to keep useless people on the payroll.

The job might pay pretty good, but what's it worth to you when you have to make trip after trip to a vet every week to have the dogs nobody picks up put down. How much death can you live with for a paycheck?
People, you don't realize what this means. A pound and a shelter are very different.
Pounds are not required to find homes for animals that owners don't claim. If those animals in that place ain't picked up and claimed, they die. It is just that simple. When the Humane Society was there with the pound they found homes for many of the animals taken in by the pound. Now that Miss Mayor has gotten her way and run those shelter people off, all those strays unclaimed will die at the end of their 5 day waiting period, if they even bother to keep them that long. Donnie the butcher might be gone but Diane is ready to hire another to do her bidding. I was told that tax dollars and money raised by the Humane Society built that building. They said when it was on the ballot to raise taxes it was called a shelter. Well your tax dollars are no longer funding a damned shelter. It's now a pound. Your taxes are now funding a waiting station for death.

A LOSER would back a bunch of WORTHLESS, yes ma'am, BOBBLEHEADS, like our council, and Mayor, the way you are doing. What's the matter did you get up on the wrong side of your Mom/Aunt this morning? Don't get all butthurt, because people are seeing our Mayor and her Bobbles for what they are....a big bunch of liars. Can't wait for those next elections, rumblings from folks are that they are sick of the criminals, and LOSERS that make up our city powers. Good Luck. This won't be forgotten, Diane and your little flying monkeys, the city of Caruthersville didn't want a high kill pound, we had a perfectly good shelter,(besides that little butcher of a dog catcher), but it was hard for Diane to keep her pudgy little fingers in those goings on. That's what it boiled down to, She couldn't control that, so she wanted it gone. Too bad she is getting pulled down with it.

Diane has a pet, does she not? I can't believe she's as heartless and cruel as she's made out to be.

Do animals have a right to life? I would like to think so. I love my dogs and dont now what I would do if they got away. You could compare the genocide of animals around this place to a recent event in human history. They are putting all the unwanted animals into a concentration camp of sorts. When they no longer serve a purpose they are executed. Yes, thats the proper terminology. Put down, destroyed, synonyms of the earlier. Im assuming that we do have an effective means of adopting out animals or that we did. I was reading the paper, who is the city attorney to send a letter saying there was a breach of trust between the city and the shelter. Well from an independent view point, the trust was violated by the city with the needless execution of animals that may have been adopted by loving homes. They wanted to know what was going on and I believe they acted in the best interest of life. I do remind them that they are from the same animal kingdom as does come from. But from the looks of it they wouldnt know about biology. I wonder if Donnie put a little black cap on with a skull and crossbones on it. They have several options of taking care of excess population of animals. One they have been trying for years. Hey we do have Puppies for Parole through the MODOC. You would be suprised how a dog with no home helps with the rehabilitaion of certain inmates in the program. Maybe Frau Pickens got a rush from such power of life and death. Maybe the fuhrer will institute a program similar to the hitler youth. The Sayre Youth, would that be a fitting. Heil Sayre!
