A few weeks ago 14 pit bulls were removed from claiborne st. All 14 were neglected. Up to their elbows in their own poop. Some of the pits didnt even have water in their pins. Each pin had one female and one male it was like the people who owned them were running a puppy mill. All the females looked as if they all had had puppys time and time again. When I saw them in dyersburg dyer co humane society. They seemed very scared. That is when i could see the damages. The dogs were not healthy you could see their back bones and hip bones their feet were in bad shape. their eyes were matted shut. It was very sad. you would think that ba of neglect would make a case. Derrick Avery the supervisor disagreed. because the lady that owned the pits was one of Derrick's friends. He dropped the case and is returning the dogs back to the owner. I say friends or no friends, family or no family if a dog or cat is being mistreated or naglected the the owner should be punished.It is a crime to mistreat and naglect animals. Animals are like humans they have feelings. If you go out and hurt people you get punished it should be the same with animals. Another thing the animal shelter is a killer shelter. Everyday animals are killed some times for no reason. Derrick Avery kills Everyday. does the humane society reallly have to kill so much. Its like Derrick dont care any more. They kill even sometimes when they dont need room. To me that is murder. When the paper came out last wednesday their was dogs and cats to adopt. I saw a beutiful dog and i went to the shelter to see about it. it had been euthanize the day before the paper went out. I was heartbroken, why take a pic of an animal and put it in the paper if you are just going to kill it. Something needs to be done that's why i am writing.

i agree not only does something need to be done about the dyersburg humane society, there needs to be harsher laws on people who don't take care of their pets. I wish someone would start a clinic where people could have their dogs and cats and the strays spay and neutered at a discount price.i have 6 dogs myself . well taken care of i might add. i also take care of stray cats and dogs in my area.

If you REALLY wanna know the facts about the 14 pitbulls that were picked up, I WILL BE GLAD TO TELL YOU! The dogs are in no way, form or fashion ABUSED,NEGLECTED, UNDER FED OR SICK. I was JUST over there YESTERDAY...IF they were so mistreated, neglected, skin and bones(for the record, as of YESTERDAY, they were NOT and it takes ALOT longer than 3 or 4 days to get 14 dogs weight and health up to par ), WHY was she allowed to get them back?I have known the owner for several years. She does take care of her dogs.She has abided by EACH and EVERY ordinance.SEEMS LIKE TO ME PEOPLE SHOULD BE MORE WORRIED ABOUT THE CHILD MOLESTER NEXT DOOR TO HER THAN HER DOGS!!!

14 large dogs is alot to own an give vet care to are they on heartworm prevention ? Are they on flea pervention do they have food an clean water ? i doubt the person who has these animals does any of this for these dogs are they a honored family pet or breeders ? Or are they being fought ? i dont think dyersburg humane society or the athoritys are doing enough for these animals i see pitiful looking animals all over town an as many human officers as there are here something should be done instead of turning a blind eye to it. I am a animal lover but i know i cant have more than i can afford to take care of.

I know i volunteered at the humane society and had to stop when i started college.. i went back and tried to get a job because they were short handed i even tried to volunteer again and they wouldnt let me.. they really should do more about neglect and abuse.. like someone said earlier animals have to be taken care of just like a child does.. they arent here just to look at they need to be loved too!

I don't think you really know what you are talking about because I was there.Only 5 of the dogs were hers and the others were friends.

I been to the shelter. I was a worker there. I seen the fourteen pitbulls and they was in bad shape they do abuse animals there. Dereck Avey messes with females there. I seen maggots in the food, dogs teeth get knocked out, medicine sold there by Dereck Avery. Carol Feathers dont believe none of that. The shelter does need to be investigated on. The animals hardley ever get fed up there. Several are several females that quite because he tried to mess with them and we need to get the girls to stabd up so we can someone in who will take care of the animals in the shelter. Im one of the females and my freind is the other one and we need all of them to stand up. I seen Dereck pull a man off the street and kill him and selling him out the back door. He sits on his butt all day and makes a thousand dollars a week. Carol Feather dont care about anyone but Dereck and the city and county need to get both of them out and take over. Dereck put a live cats and dogs that he thinks is dead in the deep freeze. IF that aint curelty then ill kiss your butt.

Both posts are typed like the same person typed them. I have volunteered there before and I've never seen anything like that. Every time I'm in there, someone is always cleaning out a cat/dog cage, or mopping some part of the floor. I know it smells, but dang...think of how many animals are crapping in there at one time!!
