they have a variety of dogs, getting them before they are killed is the problem. I encourage all to get their pets at the pound Save a Life. The dog catcher was in the 3 mile curve area today.

Many other counties have Humane Society shelters for animals. What is wrong with Logan that all we have is a "dog pound" where innocent animals are on death row? Remember people, when you call the pound about a stray animal, you're probably dooming an animal to certain death. The only reprieve they get is if someone comes to get them before their execution date. Shame on some of the people who report the strays, and keep their own dogs tied up to trees, fences, and porches without shelter in all kinds of bad weather! I think the ASPCA should take their dogs away like CPS takes neglected and abused children.

Please try the dog pound....give a shelter dog a second chance and a forever home...
You really need to get there before 9:00 a.m. though because after that they are usually gone until around 3:00 p.m.

I dont know the amount of time they keep them before they put them down, but its not long enough :( I know they basically have a gas chamber they put lots of cats in at once to get rid of them. No animal deserves to be in that place.

LOGAN DOG POUND SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN, IT IS SO HORRIBLE. I WENT IN ONCE AND STARTED CRYING IMMEDIATELY. THE ANIMALS THEY DO KEEP ARE IN TERRIBLE CONDITIONS. WE NEED TO HAVE A PROPER HUMANE SHELTER IN LOGAN COUNTY.

People who really care about these poor animals and want a REAL animal shelter need to make their opinions known to the County Commission. Nothing will ever get done by just expressing outrage on Topix. While we are waiting, dogs and cats are dying.

Do they just go around getting these dogs, or what? Because all dogs aren't strays.

I wish that we had an animal shelter around here but we dont. but sometimes when people call the pound is because they have small children who are playing and they dont want the animals attacking them.Not all of them are viscious but some of them are. But if I thought an animal was going to cause harm to my children then I would have to call the pound on them even if it meant having them put down.I do feel sorry for strays and wish that people would have their animals fixed and kept in their yards to where they dont bother people, but thats just not gonna happen.

by law they are suppose to keep the animals 5 days before they are killed. I don't think that happens. Yes Logan County Commission and the people of Logan should be ashamed. It is not like we have tried and failed, BUT WE HAVE NEVER TRIED TO HAVE AN ANIMAL SHELTER. where do our county dollars go. where does all the coal dollars go. not for roads, senior projects, or animal rescue.

You know if ppl would take the time to catch the dog and "SINCE THEY CARE SO MUCH" look around b4 they call the pound everyone would know that there's a no kill shelter on the way to Madison... Shame on all you "ANIMAL LOVER'S" who call the pound instead of taking the time to save their lives yourself....

Logan really needs a shelter to HELP stray animals. I had 2 dogs once who were friendly and never caused anyone problems. There were stray dogs by my house constantly..One day my neighbors dog was killed by an animal and mine were accused of doing it.. So the "dog pound" came and took my dogs away from me and KILLED them because they said they were vicious and my neighbors dog was expensive to replace???(Mine were black lab and rott/doberman mix)To make it even worse one of my dogs was ready to have puppies and i told the dog pound officer about it, but they were still KILLED. Something needs to be done to stop the deaths of innocent animals.

I'm sorry about what happened to those dogs that were wrongly accused and executed. So the neighbor's dog was hard to replace? I don't see how that should figure in the case, do you? If one of us would intentionally kill a dog we would be charged with animal cruelty and go to jail, but they murder those animals at the dog pound everyday and it's legal. This is Logan's dirty little secret. Nothing will be done because, with the exception of a few people on here, most of the people on Topix don't care. Most get on here to gossip and anonymously slander people they don't like. They probably act nice to the people to their face.

No most people in Logan Co do not care. Out of sight means out of mind. I have talked to 2 of the county commissioners about this problem. Did any improvements happen? NO! I will cast my ballot and it will NOT be for them.. Speak up, call the court house. I DID.

i found out a while back that the logan pound drowns the animals because they can't afford the meds to put them down. logan needs to do something about this problem. i have called the court house and they blew me off. we need to picket the court house, see if they blow that off. i have taken in a lot of strays and found them good homes and kept a few for myself. i have been to the pound it is dirty and the animals look sick. i understand that one person can not run the pound alone, maybe if some of us can volunteer to work there a couple days a week. i will check into that, its something i would like to do.the ones who have animals, please take care of them. make sure you feed and water them and get them medical help when it is needed.
