Holding pits and certain breeds for their list of people. How much money changes hands and what is the fate of these animals? kENTUCKY STATE POLICE will be interested in this little gem of info.

They do it everywhere. Is someone is looking for a certain kind of dog they ask the shelter to let them know when one comes in. I really don't see what's wrong with that.

They are only supposed to hold them for rescues,etc. Besides Greenup has a list of their admitted friends who ,shock! shock! want pit bulls! For the public adoption is to be first come first served. Rescues are the only ones allowed to put holds on these animals.And I bet KSP was interested to hear about it.

I dont know if the current dog warden does it or not but Lacy Brown would hold onto dogs that actually had a collar with the owners name and telephone number. If your beagle or coonhound was taken to the pound when Lacy was there you wouldn't be getting it back.

This is unfair practice BUT if its legit pittie lovers then awesome! Pits are usually killed with or without collar/tags due to breed and general ignorance. My question is why only pits? Is new owner a pit lover or a fighter, breeder, bait?

I don't think the pound is responsible for missing people or beef jerky,and I a sure they had nothing to do with Cecil losing his house...

So are you accusing the Greenup Animal shelter of taking dogs just to fill a list for family and friends? Do you know that they only go on calls to residents homes through 911? They don't drive around looking for strays. Man you are really reaching to get back at them for something they did against you.

I went to the pound looking for a lost pit awhile back and even took a pic with me they said my dog wasnt there but allowed me to see the dogs that were and told me there were only puppies in the very back row while my husband was talking to the lady i went to the back row and sure enough there was my dog and thank goodness i got her back

Wow, some folks have way too much time on their hands. Reading through alot of the posts I first thought this was a great "raise awareness" campaign as one poster keeps posting I now tend to believe this has become a personal vendetta. I think the one poster who is so concerned needs to get off the internet, take a deep breath, and relax. If there was all of this wrong doing and you have proof of all this then why aren't you at the shelter with WSAZ or CNN and having it handled? They probably find you as nutty as I have started to find you. Not tryinng to be rude but, honestly, if you can prove all of this why are you on here typing about it and NOT doing something to change it. Thats all....you can attack now because I know that you are the only one allowed to have an opinion about your personal vendetta.

They DO have a list. They freely admit this. Referring to another post, they DO NOT hold for rescues, only their friends on the list.

I'm shocked they allowed you in the back. Since the rules changed, if someone "loses" a dog, they would never be able to identify him/her. The back room is off limits. What are they hiding????
