Instead of picking up the dog, the owner should be picked up and put in jail until they can learn responsibility.

Who are you referring to by "they"?

And please have someone more capable than you to type your postings.

Still have to pick up the dog because there's no one else to take care of it.

Call the shelter and ask April, she's getting paid $30,000 a year to sit behind a desk? We have an animal control officer, his name is Chris. Right there is our real problem, the shelter director is not doing her job! How long will we continue to let this happen? She gets paid darn good money, either she needs to get off her butt, do things the right and honest way or fire her and get someone in there that will do things the right way! Go to the next shelter committee meeting and demand an answer from Mayor Humphrey and her as to why the "problems" aren't being taken care of? Why is she getting paid to be a director but she will not send Chris out to pick the strays up? We need answers!

When I called about a cops dog NOTHING has been done.He would come up and leave a note on the door and leave.Then went back and told the owner to put the dog up. was giving him over the weekend to fix a pen.Guess what??? A year later the dog STILL comes up to my house and to other houses and takes a poo in our yards.

That link was not showing on my phone earlier, but Carter County has the same problems! People call to get strays or hurt and injured animals picked up and nothing gets done!
