You THINK!!!!, It is called POOR MANAGEMENT AND POOR PLANNING ON SOMEONE PART!!!!, So, how much is this going to cost us Augusta Co, people? I do not have any pets anymore, and never will a again, hurts to much when they pass away, and that's a hurt that I can control, so lets start charging way more for pet permeits and that will able the country to build the 3 million dollar building they will want. I know for a fact that two people living close to me, have two or more dogs and they never buy permits, make it cost $100.00 a pet and make a dog warden drive around and check ever home owner for pets, and get the permit money, not set in an office everyday doing nothing..

What is a pet "permeits"? Maybe the county needs to tax you more to pay for "permeits"! You should never be a pet owner with your attitude!

In what country can someone come in my house to search for pets? Shall we have them check for guns and/or illegal drugs while they are here?

When they get to my house, they would find one tropical fish. Certainly not worth $100. I guess the poor little guy could go back to the shelter with the warden and then your tax money can pay to keep him.

How about arresting and charging more people who are neglecting and abusing their animals and have the fines for this act higher!

One idea would be to open up adoptions to people from more than just the neighboring counties. If there was a larger customer base (possible adoptive owners), there is the possibility for more adoptions. Just a thought.

I think what Daniel is referring to is licensing. This would be a good start. Municipalities that enforce licensing requirements are seeing a reduction in impounds and euthanasia. See this article for more information: http://redstarcafe.wordpress.com/2010/08/25/t...
Augusta Co. should also consider implementing a low cost spay/neuter program for those who care for free roaming cats.

Nothing wrong with that idea! I have a dog license for my 12 year old dog in the city of CHO - it cost only $4.00 - it would add up!

Augusta County does have a low-cost spay/neuter facility, at the Augusta Regional SPCA
