Maybe the staff shouldn’t tell people visiting the animals to leave and not come back.

Why not bring in students to help the animals?  Would be a good education on what animals
need and may bring the animals some new homes.

I had read that sherrif Joe in Az took over the county animal shelter and uses prisoners to op. &
run the shelter. They want to do the job as it is a break from the cells and tents. They also cherish
the attention the animals give back to them.
With proper screening and oversite of certain prisoners, why does not the county at least have a
look at this possibilty ?

These “money saving ideas” sound good until you consider that some local people will no
longer have a job as a result. These hidden outcomes need to be considered. The foreclosures
and unemployment payments that come about are very expensive to you and I who actually
pay for these things.

Support this extremely important shelter with donations and volunteering your time. As for the bitter
Nag(s) who use this important story as a political forum, be good and there might be a extra Milk Bone
in it’s bowl tomorrow!

This shelter is a lifeline for some of the most loving cats and dogs you’ll ever meet.  Thank you
to the hard working staff who help the animals there.  It’s no place for a cat or dog to spend a
life though - they need caring homes.  People are STILL paying money for purebreds when
these amazing cats and dogs are languishing in the harsh environment of a shelter waiting for
a loving home. Tell your friends, Think Shelter First.
