Raleigh County Animal Control is supposed to come and pick up,(in this case, we'll say dogs), because that is the case here. Two officers were SPECIFICALLY assigned to be animal control officers to assist in animal control problems, etc. In my area as in many others, we have a problem with people dropping dogs off in our area, etc.,,, this incident occurred again but the female dog (when dropped off apparently) was in heat,,, she had puppies and now no human contact, have begun killing cats, neighbors chickens, attacking and majorly hurting other dogs, etc.

Animal control was contacted, got one of her pups in a trap, as humans cannot get near them,,, never came back. One officer was highly regarded BEFORE as doing his job, high praise for doing so, etc., now...he does not show up, do his job, etc. MR. VEST. We pay our taxes and SALARIES, they think we can't do anything but... I think it is time to say "WE'VE HAD ENOUGH".

We pay for them to do the job that they chose or assigned to do, but they do not do it. Don't pay your taxes and see what happens. We have a backbone too, not just the one that we all break each and every day to pay salaries for recordings, NEW vehicles, and some things that we aren't even told about that they probably don't need in the first place,,,just so they can get a salary paid for by US... not do what they are paid for in the first place, and above all, STILL have a job when many people don't have when they did their jobs well and EARNED what little they were being paid. I (and I know am not the only one)...am SICK OF IT ALL. I want a job like they have. I want to get paid for a job that can wait, no problem to anyone, no problem for the people who are losing their beloved pets, etc..., I want a job where I can put a recording on the phone and do whatever I want, eat donuts or whatever it is that they do all day, news to me and everyone else because it is not seen anymore and has NOT been seen for a long time. Give me that job, I can do it. OR BETTER YET...give it to somebody that will REALLY DO IT.

I TOTALLY agree with "agree fed up". Seriously, enough is enough. We all pay our taxes and deserve better treatment for our dollars. Mr. V. needs to quit his donuts (WAY..to many...) and do his f***ing job. EARN... I'm sorry,, new word to you now Mr. V.,,, EARN...EARN... now please?

I've called for them to come pick up several dogs they capture them and then go door to door to see who the owner is and them them go I don't know how that's doing your job but honestly I had about enough someone locally needs to start there own business capturing these crazy animals

It's not the "crazy animals" fault. It's the humans who don't have their animals spayed or neutered. The last time we called about the welfare of a dog who barked day and night and never had food and water we were told you must contact the police department first, they check on the animal and if they see the animal needs removed they contact animal control. One time the policeman rode by but never stopped but the second time a different policeman stopped and did his job. If people were fined for letting animals run lose or not spaying or neutering maybe there wouldn't be so many strays.

WE need help on East Railroad Ave in Sophia. I love dogs and am trying to catch one to help it. A medium size dog was dropped on my street. I can tell it had a good home but when it went into heat and was too scared to let us get near it and it only had one puppy. Be time we could show it we cared, it was with puppies again. We took 8 healthy puppies to the animal shelter yesterday. I am keeping the Mother and will give her shots and spayed soon as the Vet says I can. The story is about the puppy from first litter. Now it is in heat. If we could catch it, I would have it spayed. It will let me get in 5 feet of it. I leave the food and it eats. How can I catch it? Some good neighbors help us but others would like to see them dead. I have the Mother in a fenced-in yard. Such a sweet dog. This one that is in heat, I don't think it would go into a trap. It is sharp. I could get it into my yard but how do I close the gate? Some people are mad and I don't want it hurt. HELP!!!

There are several dogs that hang out at the old Sophia jr high school, one is really old and has mange,they are always running out in front of cars. The owner lives across the street and does nothing to take care of them . several neighbors including myself have called the cops and reported this the cop said there is nothing they can do about it, so please tell me where is our tax dollars going or is this just a friend of the cop
