What do you think the Humane Society is?? It is suppose to be a safe haven for animals, right? Well, not in Mercer County. If so, then why would they kill animals that have people who love them and would do anything, even give their own life, to protect them. Yes, thats right, a mercer county man owned a dog that was his true companion. This man loved this dog. He took this dog with him everywhere. He had over 30 acres for this dog to roam and protect. The owner lived alone and his house was broken into and lots of valuable items were stolen. He felt frightened after this occurred and depended on his dog for protection.Like my own dog, this dog too, would sometimes leave the property. One day he didn't come home, so this man searched for him for days and eventually went to the MCHS (mercer county animal society) to see if they had his dog,it so happened they did. When he tried to retrieve his dog, the MCHS would not return his dog. They claimed that an older lady brought the dog in and said he was dangerous. Image this...an older lady brings in, what she deemed vishious and dangerous. The MCHS continued to hold this dog, made the owner pay room and board everyday,vet visits, and wasnt even feeding the dog well. Well this disbute continued to blossum with court proceedings with no concrete evidence, only heresay. No pictures of the cat he was supposed to have killed, nothing! Could we sentence a man to death for murder on heresay? No, you need cold hard evidence! This battle continued for 6 months. The man was also accused of other things that were not supported by evidence, but landed him on house arrest. Where does this story end??? It ends tomarrow, August 12th at the MCHS where the dog will be killed for the crimes that were not proven with evidence. Is this justice??? Is this Humane??? The mercer county commisioners need to review this closely. Just what type of education is required of the animal catcher? Do they do any background checks on them?? Do they inspect the animals that these girls own themselves?? What if a person would have complained about the way some of the animals she was suppose to be caring for, were treated??? It was also heresay, that she wasnt even feeding animals that were under her care at home?? Why weren't those animals taken from her and she treated in the same manner this man was?? She does not need to be caring for animals at the MCHS if it was said she doesn't feed her own animals! I will truly re-visit the idea of any finanial support to this "HUMANE" society. R.I.P Stinky you will be missed dearly.

RIP Cali,Baby, Sabastian, Dewey, Frisky, Whiskers, Lindsey, Lance, Sydney and Satan. these were the beautiful mommy cat and kittens taken to the Mercer County Animal shelter on September 9, 2011 in perfect health. They were reclaimed by their previous owner after she found out how inhumanely they were being treated at that facility. They were drenched in urine and caked with their own feces. The mommy cat was severely dehydrated and all of the felines had contracted a horrible virus while they were in their care. They were taken to the vet in hopes of pulling them through what was happening to them. They were on antibiotics but sadly, Last night Baby and Sabastian died at their home from the effects of the virus they contracted. Today, Cali, the mommy cat, stopped having the will to live. Sydney and Lance showed the same signs. When taken back to the vet today the family had to make the hard decision to put them down to save them from any further suffering. The Shelter adopted out the other kitten to a family the same day these animals were reclaimed. This kitten is VERY sick. That family needs notified that the kitten is sick and is carrying a very contagious viral infection that was contracted at the Shelter. Hope the Shelter will notify this family before the kitten suffers any longer. RIP to all these beautiful little ones. Sorry your treatment was so poor while in a county run facility. We miss you and we are still crying for your pain.
