All shelters are the same. There are too many dogs and cats for them all to be adopted out. The best chance is to get your dogs and cats spayed and neutered. There are sources out there to help you. So many people say they can't afford it - but how do you afford to feed your animals, etc if you can't afford $60 to get it spayed? Please think about getting and animal - especially if you do not intend to care for it properly.
We are talking 3 or 4 dollars every two weeks not 60 at one time. Alot of people are on fixed income that own animals. I recieved an animal from paws. 40 bucks cost me 80 to take it to the vet and get it well. I will probably not use paws. So money wasted i will probably use the vet I took it to

Everyone that has a pet should have it spayed or neutered and if you can't afford to do that then you don't need a pet. That may seem harsh but the truth is it will have unwanted babies and more unwanted babies and that's how they end up homeless and in the animal shelters. I have a dog, a cat and a ferret and all are spayed and neutered.

The spay neuter clinic in Bristol charges $60 for spay/neuter. You can also call Washington Co Animal Defense League or Holly Help for financial assistance.

I agree to a point, I didn't want my cat, I love animals but really couldn't afford one on my income, but when my kids found him stuffed in a garbage can I couldn't just leave him there or take him to the shelter, they are over ran with cats and he would have probably been put to sleep. I went through paws and got him fixed for around 50.00. I do think that you shouldn't be going out and actively getting animals that you can't afford.

You must be as cold hearted as a dead person to be so cruel to animals, i hope someone as cruel as you works in the nursing home you have to go stay at during your last years on this earth!!!

I got a beautiful cat there last July. They were very nice and the shelter was very clean. She was going to be put down the next day so glad I was able to rescue her.

The shelter is good I guess. I took two cats in and seen a picture of them posted. I said something about them being my cats. I got a comment back that said I hope you dont have kids. How stupid. Animals are not humans dear. I can take an animal or leave it I have never left my kids with no one.If my kids cant go I dont go.

Animal Lover2 you said it, ass hole for sure. This person will get their day someone will snip their ass. The ones that take care of Gods animals will be rewarded. These animals didn't ask to be put on this earth. It's not the animals fault if a person would feed their animals they wouldn't have to get in the garbage to find something to eat. If people would spay and neuter their animals,these animals wouldn't have to be euthanized but let them have just one litter and where do they end up, at the shelter.
I don't believe these animals even have souls so just another obstacle in the way

Personally I don't know about a Hug, that's a bit too touchy feely, but you probably need a kick in the pants for calling people who have a heart dumb. I worry about the animals, but I do worry about the humans too. I worry that human beings are so stupid because they keep having children that they can't feed either and with all the political stuff going on in this country with the rich elite thinking less of the middle class and nothing of the poor. WHO knows euthanasia might not just be for unwanted animals no one wants to be responsible for in the future...it might be for all those poor people and kids noone wants to pay taxes for. Of course I don't think some people would care if it was people placed in kill shelters... Just as long as it wasn't them. Have some sympathy for the animals, who knows...you might be in their place one day.

I personally like animals much more than 90% of the humans, they are the most honest and next to children the most innocent creatures. But I do know that I can't save them all it is sad when people take animals to the shelter bc they just don't want them anymore or out grew them, but atleast they didn't just let them out for "nature" to take care of.

I heard from a friend at work that if you agree to get the dog that you want fixed they will let you adopt the animal for free is that correct

They don't follow state regulations. Been busted once before. Illegal shots to puppies in the heart. My fiance was in jail once and worked there to pay his fines. Wise county keeps it hid because the head animal warden is their pet. Go figure.

i know the workers at the Wise County Animal Shelter and they do try to find homes for the majority of the dogs that they house. they wouldn't have to pick up dogs if people would take care of their dogs, instead of turning them loose and letting them roam free around the county with no collar, no rabies shots, or anything to verify who the owner is. i visit the shelter often and some of the pictures that the officers have taken out in the field while working is disgusting. before people start throwing stones at the officers and the facility they work at, they should make sure their hands are clean before pointing fingers because pictures don't lie, they show the facts. the Animal Shelter tries to take care of the animals to the best of their ability and the officers would have a lot more time to work with the animals if they didn't have to work 24/7 checking on animals that aren't properly cared for by some of the animal owners. i do know that the animal shelter is hooked up with the humane society and are now taking pictures and sending them straight to the humane society. the humane society is well pleased with the job that the officers are doing in the county!
