It seems to me that the Humane Society is Exceedintly judgemental and has way to much say so in county policy. ALL facts are never released. Are they calling dirty runs "neglect"????
We have a very small kennel. Runs are cleaned at 8 an to 9 am. and again after feeding in the evening. THe dogs can't wait for a clean run so they can immediatly poop on the clean concrete.
If anyone starts a fund for the poor owners to sue HSUS, I will contribute.

Those conditions were far more than dirty. If you watched the video, you saw hell on earth for those dogs. They were the animal equivalent of the Nazi death camps. That did not happen overnight. It took a long time for conditions to get that bad. Caring people would have arranged for the animals to be cared for if they could not do it. If the Smiths had even turned to the public for help, they would probably have had all the help they could use. If they could not find a way for those dogs to receive proper care, under no circumstances should those poor dogs now be returned to them. Furthermore, Floyd County authorities believed that a crime was taking place at the Smiths. That gave them the right to enter the property and remve the dogs. If those were human children, would you say that the Smiths should have been given a chance to improve conditions? Would you say that children should have been returned to people who treating them like that? The answer is, "No!"
