And Tommy and Amber Adkins, the two charged in this ordeal, were so upset about the dogs being taken away from them that they were in Walmart shopping this afternoon while the Humane Society took their dogs away. They make me sick.

Where will the puppy in the news piece be available for adoption once it has been cleared medically?

Funny thing that even tho they are saying these animals was denied food, water, etc, They all look healthy and fed good to me. Even on the video from the seisure at the home. They was all looking fine to me. Just A thought. Lets not forget that this is election season as well. This is the same guy that lost some animals to poisoning A while back. I didnt see any comotion about that. Hmmmm???

I don,t think that was enough for what they did to those poor animals and getting away with it.Why take on alot when you know that you can,t really handle it at all.Don,t be stupid about this these are animals we are talking about and if they could talk they have told you themselves that they didnt want to be there in the first place.And they had the nerves to be smiling on national television like it was o.k. but it is not o.k.

Marsha Williams is my hero. God bless her and those at the shelter, who really care. This has to stop and those three comissioners that voted against the puppy mill laws need to really rethink their positions on this issue. Everyone please keep your eyes open and report anything that looks like crulty.

When you look though the eyes of a con man you only see the roses, you do not see the thorns that cover the plant. So are you Tommy or just one of his fellow con men?

I guess you'd look healthy and well fed as well if you were eating the dead bodies of other dogs for food. Shame on you. What about the 19 dogs they had to put to sleep because of the bad condition they were in? I know I heard him say that it just happens that dogs that are rescued sometimes die, but didn't he have sense enough to realize some might be sick and in need of medical care? That is what some of the money he was paid should have been used for...that and of course adequate amounts of dog food. AND just what does an upcoming election have to do with such obvious abuse of these poor helpless animals? Sounds to me like he used the money he was given for the dogs care on something other than the dogs. Also with regards to the dog poisoning earlier, I think the reason you don't hear much about that is that no one knew at the time what this couple was like. Now that we do, perhaps that incident will be investigated as well.

You want us to feel bad for tommy adkins for two of his dogs being poisoned, but did you ever think if he would of kept his dogs under his control as well as being fed they would not of needed to go out looking for food and posibly being poisoned. His dogs could of been poisoned by his own hands not on purpose but could of happened in his own yard where he works all the time on his cars.
