|I went there today. No remodeling going on at all. I saw 11 cats and TONS of dogs. The place looks a bit run-down. The more I hear, the more I think that we need to get those dogs and cats out of there!!
I just got another email from a trainer I know:
I had a student come to the store tonight to tell me she had to return a dog to the HB Shelter she adopted because the dog was to hard to handle. She was an 11 mo. American Bulldog mix and very sweet, but she chewed everything up when the owners left her alone. The lady said the people at the shelter said you know this dog is going to be put to sleep if you return her donâ€™t you? They really pressured her to take the dog back because the dog was going to be put to sleep. I told the lady that was what I had heard about the dogs at the shelter and she was very upset but said she just couldnâ€™t keep the dog. This dog was very friendly with the other dogs in my class and had a real sweet personality. I tried to get her to foster her but she said she would get too attached to her and it was very hard for her to take her back to the shelter.
And then a response from a lady who works in another rescue group:
I think the story is changing to suit the public. The vet will probably quietly PTS the dogs and cats there because he is interested in renovating his facility. The vet office is first and will take a year. He has had numerous allegations about how the dogs are handled, where they eat and sleep (with all the local rodents) and it is really a sad situation. I want to know if he is really associated with the real Humane Society, and if he receives government money. It all comes back to money. Who is asking these questions? He thinks it will go away. And the great dogs and cats there will suffer. Too many stories are coming from here...he knows we are on to him, so the people who answer the phone are given a script about the situation. A volunteer there was the original person who broke the news to rescues.
