I won't give that place one penny. Kellie Wallace doesn't notify owners if their Pet has been found, so she can Adopt it out for the Adoption fee.

All I can say about that is too bad you lost your dog. But if Kellie had the dog, she did everything in her power to find the owner. Too bad you didnt check with her or go to the humane society to identify your dog. She keeps them for a time before she allows an adoption. Next time check around for your dog. My dogs are part of my family and I would do anything for them. Be responsible!!!!

Not just because people do not have their animals fixed and let them run. But the AKC, CFA and ACFA breeders who over breed, inbreed and online breed the innocent animals for the money. Even though 200 or more animals per minute are being put to sleep in pounds and kill shelters today. They still are over breeding for the greed and they don't care about the animals. Plus if they didn't over breed people would take from the pounds, and shelters instead of their animals. The back yard breeders get their animals from them to over breed for the greed too. Then the obnoxious vet fees which some times do not have quality care. There should be a moratorium against the AKC, CFA and ACFA breeders breeding with all the animals that are being put to sleep in the pounds and kill shelters today big time. Very dangerous time for the animals today. No kill are packed with waiting lists for 6 months or more. They are crying that they can't take in more animals.

The puppy mills on are in the classifieds with the AKC. Where at the same time in the classifieds most of the apartments and house for rent say no pets.

I did contact the Animal Shelter and Animal Control with a complete discription of mt Pet the day he got lost. She adopted him out without contacting me.

If you love your dog that much you should micro chip. Pet owners have a responsibility to take care of their animals. Believe me, mine is micro chipped and fixed.. And its a mutt off the street. I dont believe in paying for a pet when their are those that need homes. donate your money people. kelle does a good job.

I thought some guy passed away and he left thousands to the shelter? I don't remember when this happened but I remember reading an article in the paper about this.

Tanker sorry you lost your dog. I think you loved your dog plenty. The animal shelter is a safe haven for abused and unwanted animals I would hate to see it close. As long as they are being fed, sheltered and adoptable I will keep donating to the shelter I hope you change your mind and maybe donate someTHING instead of money.

It is always easier to blame someone else than blame yourself. Own up to it.

This is True,she wasted the money.Sure she bought a new washer,did it have to be the most expensive one.People donate food and if it is not pedigree or alpo,she throws it away.Go look in the dumster sometime.She has everyone fooled,even the so called pres.If she does not like you or your family,she will not adopt to you.Your yard also has to be fenced in and in a good neighborhood.If she really cared about the animals,she would adopt them out to people that wanted then,NOT who she likes or dislikes!!!Why does she go thru so many kennel attendants,I always see the ad in the paper.Maybe it is because noone can work with her unless they are just like her.We really need someone new in there

I will tell you why she goes through so many kennel attendants,1st you have to clean the cages 2x's a day and this includes both times taking everything out of their cages and sweep and mop it out and change their blankets and they get 2-3 blankets per dog,this is hard on a person and she will tell you she can't do it herself but expects others to do it with any problems or excuses,they run you around the shelter like you are a dog yourself and if you don't do something you get yelled at,she also expects you to remember all the medications and which dogs get which food,i don't think the hourly workers should have to give any animal any medication thats not their job someone more qualified should do that,and there are some aggressive dogs there and they expect you to not worry about being around them and not getting bit,oh and you are expected to be there everyday no excuses!

how can the City of Kewanee (taxpayer money!) donate to them when Kellie is on the City Council? You don't have to look too deep to see the shady goings on out there. Sooner or later the right government agency will get involved and look at the books of that "non-profit" organization then we'll see who's right!
