Let’s get going
I am curious to know the reason that two of our elected County Commissioners proclaim themselves “animal lovers,” but clearly show no interest in the welfare of our county’s lost, abused and neglected animals.
Only now, because they are being pushed, are they attempting to patch the ever widening holes at the animal control facility.
As a former boarding kennel owner and operator I can assure them that the ASPCA would have done all they could to shut me down if my kennels were half as inhumane as the animal control is offering our animals.
Fencing is a fine start, but what will these dogs do when turned out? Are the dogs to continue on contaminated dirt that will become mud, leading to further disease and enabling the dogs to dig their way to freedom?
Or, is the area going to be concreted so that daily sanitation can be performed? The present place needs a good, solid foundation before the first length of wire is installed. The building itself needs day-light and ventilation, wiring needs to be replaced for safety reasons for both human and animal.
I saw the photographs of the facility and no longer wonder why the place is closed to the public.
Now I understand that if an appointment is made, a tour may be taken. Whom, may I ask, is to conduct this tour? We have only one animal control officer and he is already pushed to the limit trying to perform his other duties.
Time is passing Commissioners Stacy Dugan and Brad Close, animals are suffering, this is the USA and people are mad so, let’s get going.
