Re: My shelter is closing... (Long!)

The article came out in our local paper last night on their website. Today at least three news crews came by to cover the story. One aired at 6 pm and one is set to air at 11 pm. Here's the link to the video I'm in. Don't make fun of me too much! I'm the one talking about Bo and Luke. I tried to get...

Re: Anyone knows what happened to petesdoggear.com?

I bought a collar in June and one of the spots popped off. I contacted her on like June 9 and she said she sent me replacement spots. I've never recieved them and she has yet to get back to my numerous emails.

I'm very happy with the collar otherwise. It's nicely put together.

Re: My shelter is closing... (Long!)

Today was a great day! At the adoption even we adopted out 16 dogs to great homes! Another group helped us out and we made sure that everyone was screened really well. We also had 12 cats adopted! Yay!! Someone posted about our situation on Craigslist and then our Facebook page started to get swampe...

Of course! You may post this anywhere that you think will help get these animals out of here!

Re: My shelter is closing... (Long!)

At the board meeting last night, they decided that we should shut our doors for good. September 30 is our last day and September 30 is the last day for the animals. Their press statement should be out Monday but they said that all animals will be euthanized if they aren't placed by then. This sucks!...

Re: Halloween collar for sale.

Alright, just thought I'd ask. :) It looks good by the way. I have tried my hand at collar making and it's a lot harder than it looks.

His head is kind of narrow but I can't remember the measurements off the top of my head. The base of his neck is 24".

Re: Halloween collar for sale.

So it wouldn't fit a 24" neck?

Re: My shelter is closing... (Long!)

Thank you. Our return rate is very low and most of the time it is people problems, not the animals themselves.

Re: My shelter is closing... (Long!)

While we don't do home checks, and from my understanding, most shelters don't, they do have to be approved to adopt. They have to fill out an adoption application and then have an interview. It's not like we're going to give our animals to the first person with money. We care more for our animals th...

Re: Shelters: ALTER YOUR DOGS before adopting!

This is why I love the shelter I volunteer and work at. They will not adopt out a dog that is not fixed, microchipped and up to date on everything. They charge around $135 for a dog, and that isn't paying for the dog it's paying for everything done to the dog before they go home. They also give a f...

Re: My shelter is closing... (Long!)

I honestly don't know much because I'm not in charge of anything. The director is involved in a lot and I know she's tried many things. When the previous treasurer left, we literally had nothing in the bank. They reopened the shetler with only about three months worth of funds and for the two years ...

Re: My shelter is closing... (Long!)

Thanks guys. Gordie is a fantastic dog! He had a Great Pyrenees friend called Big Mac who got adopted at the beginning of this month. After Mac left, Gordie kind of went down hill. He started puking blood and losing lots of hair!! They were best friends and he was really stressing out. Gordie has ne...

Re: My shelter is closing... (Long!)

I totally agree with you about certain animals are better off being put down. I just don't know if Hazel would be one of those cases. She's a very happy dog. Her just doesn't have manners and knows next to nothing. There's a lot of work to be done at the shelter and just not enough people to give th...

My shelter is closing... (Long!)

I’m really stressing right now. Just got the news today that the shelter is on the brink of closing. Yes, we’ve had this discussion before and the shelter did close temporarily last year for three months. The talk this time if about it being for good. The director said she hopes that all of us will ...
