Has anyone else noticed how fast they humane society here kills dogs. My neighbors puppy bite the dog catchers hand while he tried to choke it into the truck. Its chain had come undone. This dog was maybe 25lbs. 4 cops, a firetruck, ambulance and 4 more "dog catchers with cigs hanging from thier mounths" showed up for this little puppy. They ended up shooting it and killing it then dragging it by its tail up the middle of the road. I dont think this place even gives animals a chance to be relocated.

There are too many dogs running at large in Dyersburg. My wife was attacked while walking our dog by a pit bull up the road who's owner claimed his chain had come undone, but we've seen him running before.

If people would take the appropriate actions to keep their animals contained, vetted, and be sure their animals are safe for the public to be around then the Humane Society wouldn't have to put so many to sleep, nor would they have to call all the extra help to catch a dog. By your own testimony, the dog bit someone. Better safe than sorry.

As for the dog up the road, nothing is being done. We've reported that he's running free, but the Humane Society is so busy with everyone else's dogs that they don't want to get involved here, especially since he has an owner.

I'll shoot him myself next time I catch him near my yard, though. My wife and our dog got away without serious injury, but we've also got two young daughters. He bites one of them and I'll be coming after him and his owner both.

The humane society kills thousands of dogs, they have to. I think more people would be responsible if a dog attack was equal to assault and battery and the owner was accused of that by proxy of animal negligence less people would have these pit bulls and other dogs roaming free. And what if the owner claims the dog isn't theirs? Kill it. Hopefully they wasted 400 dollars on the dog.

this dog didnt attack anyone besides the dog catcher who was trying to drag it into the truck. It was sitting and wagging its tail until he grabed it by the neck. Yes shoot the dangerous ones. but dont kill one because the dog catcher got bite on the hand. And seriously did that many cops need to show up.

I would like to know what is happening in this state with the humane societies? Do the citizens not care at all? Many HS are closing. The problem will only get worse.
Communities have to pull together to save these animals. Start with the population that runs loose. There are leash laws in D. so why arent they enforced? These HS's run on nothing much but donations. No one wants to donate or volunteer. Some 'volunteer state!'
Then you can filter out the ones that own dogs only to fight them.
Clean up the counties of puppy mills.
There are a lot of things that can be done that aren't right now. If something isn't done soon it will get worse. Please try volunteering or bringing in supplies and don't be so quick to blame them when their hands are tied.

If people would start adopting dogs instead of paying high dollar for pure breeds we could help to control the situation. More often than not "muts" are healthier than the pure bred dogs bacause there isn't a history of inbreeding and such involved. Most pure breeds have health problems due to the breeding process.

If you want a dog, save one. Don't pay someone to give you one just because it has papers.

Tryingmybest is exactly right. We've had mixes and purebreds (given to us from family friends) and the mixes were the best dogs ever!!!

Well the Honorable Dean Dedmon City Judge of Dyersburg lets his dog run at large and the dog catchers wont even respond to calls about them. How can you enforce a law you are not willing to obey. Hey Dean you have a fenced in yard. Use it.

Im sorry but I feel as though the humane society is pretty piss poor with how they run things... I adopted 3 dogs with Distemper there and they had to all be put down out of my pocket.. they humane society said they had no cases of distemper...?? Well i also get a little concerned with people who just let there dogs screw every dog in the neighborhood and have a bunch of strays or have somebody find them and try to save them and bring them to the humane society and thenn they tell you that they dont have a enough room

To me these people neeed to either get sober folks working for them or shut down and for the irrresponsible pet owners get your freaking dogs fixed or cats and quit complaining cause as far as I can see yall dont have a clue

If you are adopting from the Humane Society, they will come with a spay or neuter certificate to do it free.

Otherwise, I have heard there is a vet in Ripley that will do it for less than $100, though I'm not sure of the exact amount or his name.

Jimmy Crisp charged about 200 to neuter our dog, I think. It was about 3 years ago, but this included all the pain management. If you are looking for a vet in town, I highly recommend Crisp.

I used to go to Dr Crisp. They are good there except for boarding. I boarded a small dog with them for 10 days. I called every day to see how she was and they always said she's fine. When I got back she was nothing but skin and bones. I know dogs usually won't eat when they are boarded BUT they could have told me that she was loosing a lot of weight. I was so shocked when I got her I couldn't even say a word.
I now use the other one.

Dr. Crisp has boarded my dogs and cat for me before several times when I went out of town to visit family. I've boarded other places before, too.(Nauvoo, for example) and when I got them back from out there, they were scared and it took a few days for them to get back to their old selves.

When they've been boarded with Dr. Crisp, they seemed fine when I picked them up.

He can't help it if your dog is nervous and won't eat while it's boarded there. I doubt he let her get down to "skin and bones" either.

Don't blame him because your dog had a natural reaction to being left behind. My dogs and many others have never had a problem when boarded there.

He's a great vet and will work with anyone about anything. He's even accepted payment arrangements for me once when my dog got hurt, rather than let the dog suffer. He cares about the animals he works with.
