From Help Weatherford Shelter Pets Facebook Page:

WPCAS is a high kill shelter. We want them to become a LOW kill shelter! Many people are confussed by the term "no kill" thinking it means warehousing all pets, when in actuality it is working toward a goal of 90% or more getting out alive.

Remind you of anyone?

This is a more community friendly activity for you to concentrate upon. Hopefully the Weatherford Shelter can fix it's bad side and clean up it's act and staff finally. Animal cruelty is a bad sign and we have gotten some bad press lately county wise on this subject.

You failed to understand the post. Let me point it out to you:

people are confussed by the term "no kill" thinking

What is confussed? Chronic misspelled words are a trade mark of some one who posts on this forum. Illiterates are running this facebook page - the only "bad" press came directly from this group of people - not the general public. So, you climb down off your high horse and find a more community friendly activity for yourself.

Well LeeAnn/Shannon, I see you found your dictionary:

WPCAS is a high kill shelter. We want it to become a LOW kill shelter! Many people are confused by the term "no kill" thinking it means warehousing all pets. No kill simply means working toward a goal of 90% or more, making it out alive.

Your Display of Ugly Signs..........

Perhaps like myself the city considers these ugly signs to be political and should only appear at election time. Since Weatherford has a sign ordinance, each of you should be paying for the privilege of displaying your ugly signs. Why beg for money when you are wasting so much on such as this?

From Facebook:

Help Weatherford Shelter Pets They do not like them because it highlights issues they refuse to deal with and want covered up. They think the signs give the city a bad name.....not having a pound that kills healthy animals without putting effort into finding them a home. Just people knowing about it.

First, I don't know what you're talking about. The Help Weatherford Shelter Pets FB site has about a 1/2 dozen administrators/moderators and over 1200 members so I cannot control every single post on there. Apparently what? There was a spelling error? Big freaking deal.
Second, if you dislike our cause so much why do you spend so much time stalking our Facebook pages? Just ignore us. Every time you get on here and run your mouth we gain more support and more followers on our pages. So whatever "damage" you think you're causing us is backfiring, significantly.
Third, it's not "our display" of anything. The citizens ask for them and we oblige. If they want them and want to post them its their business.
Finally, while you're on this silly site moaning and groaning (anonymously I might add!) we (the "animal people"-- haha!) are taking action. We still host the low cost spay/neuter and vaccine clinic every month. We still fundraise to help families/pets in need. We continue to educate citizens on our "no kill" goal. We work with the pound to network it's animals and by doing so, it keeps the pound accountable to its taxpayers. We provide pet food to needy families. We focus on our priority of keeping pets out of the shelter and spay/neutering. We are currently taking in donations to vet Veterans pets in honor of Veterans Day. Our donations and support increase with every month and we in turn- see to it that citizens reap our rewards. You must be a miserable person to turn such positive efforts into such a big moan and groan Fest. If all WE did was complain and no action being taken, your complaints would be validated. But since you sit in the confines of your home or whatever, with your fake Topix ID's, and "blah, blah, blah" our efforts-- you look foolish, hateful, uncompassionate, and overall... miserable. What a waste.
Ahh, patting yourself on the back again. I find some of the posts on your site funny. You have people giving human emotions to animals - you have people STILL posting very mean and false allegations about the shelter and the shelter employees - your pictures you are so proud of show case mostly human legs and not animals - etc. Most of your "members" are not residents of Parker County but are people from other states, other counties who enjoy adding their little two cents worth to a subject of which they know nothing. You have people snatching dogs off the street to "save" them from the shelter. If you have that many admins then that's your problem. If spelling errors are no big deal then education is no big deal to you either. Just look at all the tax money people could save by just shutting down all the schools. Oh and spelling errors make you look silly, foolish, uneducated and give the impression that you do not care about your subject. My time spent on you and your "little" group is minor. You are just not that interesting.

Oh yea, you're pretty busy "stalking" Tawni. Your point is invalid.
And yes, internet stalking is a form of stalking.
As usual you over-react. No one is stalking you - you are trying to scare people who have differing opinions than yours. You are trying to belittle, browbeat and put down anyone who does not agree with your little program. You see yourself as a savior of animals. Why don't you go to New York and get busy saving all of their animals?

Here is one of your many "members". Now what would be your definition of this statement? Inflammatory - slander - out and out lies - If you want the public to see you as a serious animal rescue group, you would cease posting this type of garbage. And another matter, abbreviated curse words are still obscene and offensive. Another reason for the public to not take your group seriously. This is another example of your group acting in a political manner - illegal if you are to keep your 501c3 status - check it out. And no one is forcing you to read this forum nor to answer any post, seems as if you might be the stalker.

Sally Pool The problem is, it's easier to kill than get off their butts and try to save dogs and cats. Look at the kill rates!!! It's worse not better.
Basically killed the volunteer program. The staff needs to be fired and should have been when they killed the puppies last December. That act was animal abuse and should have been addressed instead of name calling and coverup by Jerry Blaisdell
I firmly believe Tawater and Kessler are two of the worst.
We need a firm and informative plan for the citizens of Parker Countyto get rid of them.

Well, you are finally using names and ect. in your articles. Why not get personally , actively involved and help those who are trying to solve and clean up the mess at the shelter. Jerry Bliasedale is at the very root of the problem. Everyong is aware of his personal agenda in this issue. Shameful that it has been not addressed by the council. Some changes in our City Charter in the amendments a couple of elections ago gave him more power and authority than the council members you elected to look after your interests. They cannot address Department Heads or employees without the approval of the city manager. Read it and think about it. Those changes in the amendments were laying the groundwork for some things that are still to come. They gave three year terms to council members also. That was not a good thing but the city manager and his assistant lobbied weeks to get it done. Most folks do not read what they are voting for. They just listen to hype droned at them and take the word of folks who have a hidden agenda about the subject as was the case in the amendment changes in our charter. Beware of future issues of that kind. Creatiave wording of those types of amendments on our ballots cause a good deal of confusion at the time of voting as well. Our civil rights are slowly being scraped away a bit at a time.

The name came straight from your facebook page - copied and pasted on this forum. Instead of reading to understand, you can't wait to fire back with your nonsense. So now you are a mind reader - as in your statement "most folks". I will never "get involved" in your little crusade against the shelter. If there are any problems associated with the shelter they are all in your warped, twisted thinking.

Once again you think you can read minds. You need to leave the shelter alone and get back to snatching animals off the streets.

From Help Weatherford Shelter Pets Facebook page:

Weatherford can kill hundreds without thinking anything of it and Carrollton looses 4 and it tears them apart.

Once again you are wrong! Ha! You will never guess - I see you are dredging up old Democrat articles about the shelter. I suppose you must since you can't come up with anything new to complain about nor any new ideas to offer. Anyone been snatching dogs off the street today? I heard a rumor the other day - I heard your hubby is undercutting the other vets in the area. True or false?

I find it quite amusing that all of you (as adults) have nothing better to do than belittle your fellow citizens. This rescue group is at least trying to help the city, and yet you belittle them for it. They are not asking for personal compensation. What do you people do in your free time besides posting on Topix under false identities? It seems as though you lead rather worthless lives, which is a crying shame.

And you, what kind of life do you live? My life is far from worthless; I live a very busy and productive life. What's amusing is you are posting under an assumed name while you act as a harridan. Did it ever occur to you that the city does not need nor want their kind of help? You must not know the history of this group or you would keep quiet.

And also to those of us who do not agree with their methods and tactics, their seeking revenge against the shelter and the shelter employees and their obvious one-sided view point.

I would be curious to know how many of those who oppose this group have actually rescued/fostered animals that otherwise would have died due to the negligence of irresponsible pet owners? I am with another rescue group and have heard nothing but good things about these girls who get minimal help from this community. Girls just ignore all the political crap. Its all about saving lives.

No one is denying the animal rescuers their freedom of speech, but you two seem to not want them to say anything about the animal shelter. Or at least, not say anything negative.

Don't get out much? The community has heard enough from this group.

Hey "Animal People" - keep up the good work in your community. The animals are God's creation and innocent in their need, but you work to transform your community from the antiquated and barbaric, taxpayer funded pound to one that reflects better on the heart of the community in caring for 'the least of these.' Don't let some unnamed critic's posts on a public forum bring you down - your work is much more noble than that of a cowardly critic. Our world needs more compassionate leaders willing to give their heart, time, and talents in building a better community! Thank you!
