I just saw a pic of a very pretty dog in the paper that said its stray time is up so I really hope someone adopts it. I would if i had room but I've already got 2 dogs. Why can't our animal shelter be a no kill shelter? I wonder if people could donate food and needed items and maybe even some financial support if that could be changed?

If it was a no kill shelter they would quickly run out of room at the pound. The law says they cant turn down a cat or dog so they have to put down dogs that no one wants to adopt to make room for more to come in. If people would adopt the dogs then they wouldn't have to be put down, don't blame the shelter blame the people who don't take care of they're animals.

If there was low cost spay and neuter for cats and dogs around here it would cut down on the animal population.

if there was some funding coming for the shelter there might not kill the dogs
i dont like to even think they would put them tp sleep.
i sent a bunch of dog food and cat food there one time for the dogs and cats.im trying to make up more money to by more but its hard for one person to do that.
what i would suggest is buy a bag of dog food and take down there to the dogs and the puppys. they wont put them to sleep if they have food to eat.
i dont like it any better then anybody else that they put the dogs to sleep, but they really dont have any room down there.
so if people would just go there and adopt one or two dogs that would be a big help i went down and adopted two dogs,
have a heart and start adopting dogs they make great friends
bad deal

The blame lies on the heads of those who wont spay or neuter there are low cost programs local to us i use them often critters without litters is a great clinic and call the shelter for the info David does a really good job down there and he works with rescues as well

The adoption rate have increased more than 4 times every year since david started there, pongo fire dept has a low cost spay neuter a couple times a year, and they havent plenty of feed for the dogs and cats, its kennels that they need more of. Dont talk bad about david because you picked out a sick dog, david is not a vet so why do you expect him to cure these animals when they are brought in sick? The county doesnt give him the money to take every animal to the vet. David has worked hard to clean that place up and get animals adopted out, he puts ads in the newspaper every week and he puts the animals on petfinder. He has completely remodeled and cleaned that place up, so before you go talking bad about a good person you need to get your S**T straight.
