I'm just going to say this: and it is not in defense of anyone (DAWN)
BUT
Animal Control is governed by city and state officials & administration.
To attack the Animal Control is to attack the people personally who do the job that NONE of us would really want to do. They are limited in their resources and capabilities by the bodies in which they are governed.

I assure you the "individuals" are generally caring people. And they have very daunting responsibilities at their facilities. They are forced to walk the halls and select - just choose animals for euthanasia - because their authorities tell them so. Calls often go ignored because the authorities deem it to be a fued between neighbors. And sadly, they don't have anywhere to put the animals they take off the street, and often have to euthanize more animals to make room -
To make a difference or to voice your concerns you would need to write the governing body of your animal control in your town/city. Complaining to Animal Control falls on deaf ears because there is NOTHING they can do.

Does anyone know how to maybe see about getting the law change where it is not a misdemeanor but a felony in SC when you abuse or neglect animal. I don't know where to start the letters, I don't mean to sound dumb but when it comes to the politic stuff I guess I'm. It will only take a few voices to be heard and this is one good case to start with!

<quoted text>Once AGAIN...You DO NOT KNOW WHO I AM so STOP assuming you do. I don't have to be a genius to know I CALLED ANIMAL CONTROL. That required ME picking up the phone and ME dialing the number and ME talking to someone. Let me guess...Some body broke into Animal Control's office just to answer phone calls. FYI..I PERSONALLY called 3 times. If I called 3 times and others called, you tell me...How many calls did Animal Control receive? How many calls does it take or visual conformation for Lex Animal Control to come out and do what they are PAID to do? Those dogs didn't get that way over night!
Let's not forget I PERSONALLY called Lex Animal Control out for my own "backyard" issue and got NO HELP. So tell me again how someone has to be a genius to know about making phone calls.
SEE NOW THAT THE FACTS ARE OUT-YOU CAN'T BLAME ANIMAL CONTROL- YOU MORON AND THAT GOES FOR ALL OF YOU JUMPING ON THE BANDWAGON, DID NOT KNOW A DAMN THING ABOUT THE CASE

JAN 7TH will be the court date to see what happens with her and the animals that survived. No other info will be released until then and the shelter is closed until then. She has fled her home since she was released..well she hasnt been there...dont know if she will come back for the hearing or not, will have to wait and see.

Menally Ill? Maybe, but she is smart enough to clean the place up now, in fact the last 2 days. If you only knew the smell, I cannot even begin to describe it in words. What I saw in the corner of that basement was a dog that just curled up & died from lack of food , water , care & LOVE! it died in the dungen of HELL! with his little buddies watching. This lady is sick all right! Still needs JAIL TIME! she can get the help she needs in there! The animals cannot speak , so we must plead for them. What eles went on here that w did not see or hear? I can olny imagine! I'm sure if they drain the green pool , they WILL find more dead bodies of animals.
SICK? She isnt sick she is just in it for the money she doesnt give a rats a$$ about these babies $$$$$$ is all she sees and she should be in jail as we speak!!!!!! A true breeder would love their babies as well not just see them as a money maker!!!How can she get away with this??? I watch animal cops and they take them to jail right then. I heard she was arrested but was allowed to go in on her own she should spend the rest of her sorry self in jail like she made these babies do. IM just sick about this!!!!

with all that is shown here, you still have not actually seen how bad it really was....beyond describing. I wonder if we should rally somehow to get the laws changed and animal control to actually do something for a change besides sit in the office and drink coffee. Anyone game or have ideas?
I do dont know if anyone is game or not but i think we find out when she goes to court and be there to rally that she go to jail for what she done to these little ones.I dont mean to get out of hand with it just do it legally and maybe some be in the court room too i know all of us wont fit in there(lol) but we can start there let them know we are tired of people getting away with this.I know i have seen pics of these little ones and it has broke my heart i have lost sleep over it myself. I can imagine those of you have seen it first hand bless your hearts. I too thank you for stepping up and getting something done. Now we need to make sure she serves the time she deserves.But watch her get out of it with just a slap on the wrist.

Does anyone know what happened with this case. Did she go to trial or was it swept under the rug? She had a court date in June but there doesn't seem to be any info available

My question is... why don't we have harsher punishments for people like Dawn Dunn... A slap on the wrist just doesn't cut it...
