The ladies that took care of the animals could of posted in paper for volunteers to help.There has to be an easier solution then dragging this issue for a yr them animals(pets) didn't ask to be there but they are and I do know alot of people contribute to the funding of it I donate to it every time i go to the stores.Why make the pets wait a yr for you all to get organized. Volunteers can be trained properly on how you want it cleaned and the feeding and grooming of the pets or common sense.

I did some volunteer work out there for a couple weeks.. That place is a joke.. The lady that runs the place, she just sits on her fat ass all day and chows down on Big Macs.. I think the only time that place was clean was when i worked there, scrubbing down the walls and cleaning the stalls, picking dog shit up out of the fenced in yards... I also heard a story about that place.. A friend of mine's dog ran away, and she called the animal shelter and told them if they find the dog to call her and let her know.. A couple weeks went by and she called back and the lady that runs the place told her that the dog was adopted by someone else.. and she said she could get the dog back for a fee of 100 or 150 dollars... Now, if you ask me, thats horrible business.. She should have called when the dog arrived there.. but she didn't.. I wouldnt trust that place, its dirty, and they have bad business practices...
