I think it is appalling that the county commissioners would let this happen. There should always be an animal shelter in all counties. The commissioners should be able to cut funding somewhere else. If they euthanize any of the animals in their care they should all be brought up on cruelty to animal charges because it is murder no matter which position you take. I have already sent all articles re: this matter to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), the Animal Rights Do Matter attorneys, the Animal Justice League, Cesar Milan the Dog Whisperer and Dog Town USA. I hope you are contacting other shelters in surrounding states (WA and CA) for help and not just sitting around doing nothing.

If you don't help these animals you will pay for it in the next elections.

I live in so. Douglas county. A rural area near I-5. Its a dumping ground for Grants Pass unwanted pets. That's cruel.

The Animal shelter has always had a public image problem. The lack of any PR for the control efforts, the last choice for acquiring a pet and the extreme cost of license or adoption are all nails in the coffin. The introduction of modern licensing technology like life time dog license are blocked by established rules and regulations that only increase cost for the public. Ending the power of the SPCA and other enforcement groups in the County will be the best cost cutting effort the county could make. Private no kill shelters are the right way to go.

This just a burr stuck under our saddle. By the "Just Us" folks. Who need, and want our money. We need a local politician shelter. Without doors, or windows.

This tugs at my heart. And they know that. This is a scheme local law has used in the past. This and tying themselves to the libraries no police could find a book in. Or chaining our park tables and benches in a heap to spite us. The last time a drunk ex sheriff pulled into my yard without a warrant, to question whether my licensed dogs were licensed. And, the law doesn't respond to complaints about their drunken brothers. Not in Josephine County. Little but a line accross the river, removes innebriated Klan law from our service. We have a first duty to persons. And our pets have no more rights than livestock in Oregon. I found that out when I had to hound our DA to prosecute the guy who bashed in the heads of the puppies he stole from The Merlin Shelter. The shelter has long been a problem. And, we need to do something now. Or everytime you holler "Sheriff!!!" a puppy will die. I can spare a day. I can scrub poop.
