About a year ago, a woman from Florida tried to start a new shelter in Elizabethton but she said that people in the area wouldn't help her so now she claims that she and her husband adopt dogs and take them up to New York every week to people that want them. They sell them for the puppy mill market from this area.

I recently met the animal control officer for the county. She seems to be a very caring person. As for the rest of the poeple at the shelter the seem to be awful. I went there and that girl Wendy was rude and seemed to be drunk or on drugs. She needs to loose her job.

That girl Wendy is John Paul Mathes wife, and you are correct, she can be very rude and always hateful.

i would like to know when and where you met the animal control officer because the new animal control officer is never working.as far as the staff at the shelter maybe rude sometimes but you dont know what they have to deal with from day to day their not there to make freinds with the pepole they are there for the animals and they make damn sure the animals are well cared for.so do your job like everyone else is and leave the shelter out of it.and if you have a personal problem with someone.grow some balls and confront them face to face dont hide behind the computer....

i would like to know when you have been too the shelter and see what all them poor girls go through every day and have been going through it for years know and half the time they arent getting paid to do it they do it because they care for the animals and thats why they are there because nobody loves and cares for these animals like these girls do and would you like some referenes because honey we got a long list for ya and you can call any local vet. and see what they have to say about the wendy 1 or wendy 2.seems like any time they are doing good at thier job some jealous person tries to make something out of it weather you try and help animals or people someone always has something negative to say aint carter county great?

Uhm..No. you want the sweetest most personable used car salesman you can find to run the front..I'm not saying the lady is rude mind you.. I met her and she seemed nice enough.. I am just saying all the care in the world wont save those animals if they don't find homes. Sigh. poor lil things. Can you imagine what it must be like to have to sit there day after day knowing you're going to have to kill the same animals you care for? I might get a little grouchy myself. seems like occupational burnout would be high for that kind of job...Meh

Wendy has an incredible heart and is good to those animals, she really cares for them and I think some of these posts are from very very large women that are jealous because she is so sexy. I wish she wasnt married, I think she knows that. For all you jealous fat girls if you are nice to her she might give you some free dog food to help supplement your diets with. You might want to get off the cherry bon bons and diet coke and try some dog food and water.

Boy, man about town you have it bad for her don't you? Call me a trailerpark ho!! Call Me fat!! You have no idea who I am. I can assure you that you are very incorrect in your assessment of me. As for Wendy Mathes, she is exactly as I have stated. Ask anyone else about town and they will tellyou about her drinking and whoring ways. If you want her so much you should go for it. Most of CC already has. As for John Paul, he wont care he is to busy getting drunk!!!

I agree with freebird. The shelter needs some fresh blood. The people at the shelter leave a bad taste in visitors mouth, I too, met the animal control officer. I have only good things to say about her. She only works part time due to the counries stinginess. It was her day off and she was out trying to catch a big dog loose in my neighborhood. I know some of the post have been from the ladies at the shelter. I am not saying they dont care for animals. I just think they need some people skills.

let me set you people right now we are here for the animals and not people like you who all you want to do is get on here and do nothing but lie and and run your mouth off about things and people you know nothing about but.if you think you can do a better job at it come on down to the animal shelter and let us know just how you can do better and as far as everyones personal life sounds like you need to get one.because who ever your getting your info from dosent have a clue.and as far as names on here have you ever heard of a thing called slander because there are ways of finding out who you are.and i hate to break it to you but wendy and her husband are very happly married.and as far as our animal control officer is concerned yes she does work very hard.
