A week ago that list had fewer dogs that needed to be saved. Some of those dogs weren't even on that list a week ago.

I don't get it if they know they are closing and that they will euthanize any remaining dogs why are they still taking them in?!?! That just doesn't make sense to me.

Regardless I hope that they all get out of there on time.

I agree, Sasha. We live in Indiana and have been trying to follow this shelter's situation, but it is hard because they quit updating their website. It is a very sad situation for the dogs that is all caused by the politics and pride of the people involved. Regardless of why, those dogs deserve loving forever homes and we hope they find them.

But why can't I- have Rabbit- stew??

This totally upsets mommy. She was on here about two weeks ago to try and help one of the dogs on there. But he was adopted out before she could get to him. There weren't that many dogs on there left to be saved and now they have added a bunch. I don't understand why they are taking in the dogs if they are just going to euthanize them. I hope for these dogs sake, they get saved before it's too late.
