Does anyone know what's going on over there? I hear good and bad I have adopted many great animals from them, but shouldn't they be in the new building by now? Does this place need to be shut down?

I will tell you what they did- Thanks Lynn Rosen- They hired a new super or what ever you want to call her and FIRED ALL the employees so she can bring her own friends- these were good hard working employees too that loved the animals and then this b-itch put all the cats to sleep so if you find an abandoned animal dont bring it there and dont donate to them. I know some of the fired employees and they want the public to know what they did-the cat room is empty- shame on you Lynn Rosen

OMG what a bunch of bologna. They did NOT fire all the employees. They did NOT put all the cats down, or dogs for that matter. Geeze give them a chance to clean up the place and do any other improvements that need to be done. I bet you when they reopen there will be plenty of animals to adopt. Quit running them down without facts and just hearsay. Rumors are running rampant, wow, after they reopen go and volunteer your extra time that you have, you must have extra time, your on the computer enough. And don't pre-judge people my goodness. I'm sure any empty cages will be filled back up with more animals when people give their pets up or the kittens that they bring in because they don't get them spayed or neutered and have litter after litter. From what I have read in the paper they will open as soon as they are ready and then you can go and see for yourself. Then ask the employees that are there how long they have worked there then you will have your answers. That's what I'm going to do, then if I'm not happy with what I see or hear then I'll raise some holy heck.

Good, hard working employees? One was just arrested over the summer for stealing from there.

We adopted a pitbull mix there last year. We found out he and the rest of the litter was taken from the mom too early. This resulted in, at least our puppy, to have him begin developing violent traits due to lack of "pack" training. We learned this from a local rescue for pits.

Puppy was wonderful the 1st week. Then would growl violently toward you went you picked him off your lap while sleeping. Also would make horrible horrible violent noises playing with dog toys. I have had dogs before, never heard such thing. Scared me.

Then the biting started. Bite me in he hand, trying to take him off the lead outside to bring inside. Bite my 3 yr old daughter in the cheek. And then the very next day my 7 yr son's cheek when he tried carrying him downstairs.

I brought him back, then said they were going to try and find a rescue for the puppy. There is one in Floyd, my wife knows someone there via Facebook. Since he bite, they couldn't re-adopt him to the public. They forced me to sign papers saying I gave them permission to put him down, although I kept asking them, you are going to find a rescue for him, right? They keep insisting they would do what they could, and the signing off was just for a last resort thing.

Floyd rescue was contacted by my wife later than afternoon. They planned on going to get him the next day, Sunday. We were even told someone went over later that day, with a picture to see him, as I was overly concerned about his well being due to being forced to sign the papers to allow him to be put to sleep.

Come Monday, the rescue told us they were informed the puppy was destroyed soon after I left on Saturday.

I was horrified! I can't believe they just upped and killed a puppy. And they didn't follow standard practice. Which was to monitor the puppy a few days in order to determine his traits. And then have someone certifid to make the call. In addition, I was told the director needed to be present when such things happen, and she wasn't! They didn't even bother to contact the local rescue.

Horrible horrible people. I voiced my concerns and anger to the Director at the time. She made her apologies, and said those involved were disciplined. But the little puppy was/is dead anyways.

I wish now that I would have just took him to the rescue ourselves. But at the time, I was anger and had enough of the puppy biting my 2nd child in 24 hrs that I took him straight back to them, as my wife was out at the time. I never imagined that they would kill him right there on the spot.

Well what did you expect? ALL shelters have a policy in regard to biting animals. They had no choice but to put him down. If you didn't want the animal put down you shouldn't have brought it to ANY shelter.

If you're going to put a place down, put it down when they do something WRONG.

i understand youe wantinf to do the humane thing.realistically speaking, if the dog bit you and your child, it most likely will bite again. no one wants that liability nor can they afford it. they did what they had to do. i am sorry this happened to you but it would have happened at any shelter. HS are difficult to run - minimal funding and most of all never enough room. i would try again but with a different breed. labs make great pets and are not known to be aggressive. you are taking a risk with certain breeds unless you know the breeders personally. this is not something i would hold them responsible for. if they gave your dog to a rescue group and the rescue group then decided to give the dog to another person or family, the same thing could happen again....

According to the interview in the Sentinel (ugh), the Humane Society is closed for two weeks for renovations and cleaning. They are not taking any new pets at this time.
I think this new director sounds like she knows what she's doing - all that cleaning can only help the center and it sounds like she may finally get the Humane Society organized.
Time will tell.

Peace for the animals!

I heard lots of rumors so I checked things out for myself. The cats are in the house to the left of the shelter. They have cats in all the rooms. The dogs are in their kennels and when people are cleaning the the dogs go outside. There are lots of volunteers over there helping and MOST of the things that they requested have been DONATED. The people here really have come out in force to help out in any way they can from donating time, supplies and money to get the animal shelter back in shape. Thank you pet lovers.

I expected them to follow procedure. Look it up, they are supposed to monitor the dog for behavior before making the decision. Even so, they are not supposed to put a dog down without the director being there. And she wasn't.
In addition, I asked, and pleaded for them to find a shelter for him, in hopes that he could be corrected...as he was only a month or so old.
And you seem to have overlooked what I said. There is a rescue in Floyd for such puppies. And they were going to go and rescue him the very next day.
The fact of the matter is, they didn't even try to help this puppy. Being a biter or not, they still should have tried to call around, tell the story, and see if there were any rescues willing to take him. That is why these rescues exist, specially for these types of breeds, because people take them home all the time only to find out they can't handle them.
And the other thing that bothered me, was there lack of knowledge to have made the donor of these puppies wait 2 more weeks before they allowed them to adopt. As research says they should have at least 6 weeks with their mother, which aids in them developing the biting habit. They were allowed to adopt them at 4 weeks old.
It just amazes me in regards to that, as pit breeds aren't your normal breeds. And you would think precautions would be made to make sure the dog is a safe dog for adoption.
