Town Lake Animal Shelter

Went with a friend to adopt a new kitten for her son. His had passed away.:(
I have four boys...my two youngest went were with us. Thinking they would enjoy seeing the dogs and cats at the shelter I bought them along. From the begining I could tell it was going to be a nightmare. The atmosphere had completely changed from the last time we had visited. The staff eyeballed us the entire time, everyone seemed on edge, majority of the animals had red "Stop" signs on the kennels, and I felt as though bringing my boys was a bad idea. My five year old has a Nuerological disorder and happened to pitch a rock towards a pigeon. Before I could even speak a woman walked up to me (not staff) and said "ohhhh he can't throw rocks at the birds". I simply held my hand up and told her "Thank you I have this under control" She then proceeded to tell all the office staff (even the cat room staff) pointing at us. I was mortified! I do not advocate animal abuse in any way. I myself have been Vegetarian for 10+ years due to my compassion for animals. I try to teach my children the same compassion for all living creatures. I do feel like this was uncalled for and very degrading! What a shame this lovely shelter has gone so far downhill. On a good note my friend adopted a sweet kitten named Hope.
