Thanks Melinda! I needed to get grounded & more logical. I was so blinded by anger yesterday that I couldn't think straight! I had decided last night to go to a news reporter that does this type of investigative reporting. They have more resources than I do. That certainly doesn't mean that I'm going to sit back & sit on my thumbs. I will do as you suggest as well. So, thank you so very much for your words of wisdom.
Many blessings to you,
Thanks Zodiac, I'll check that out. I don't volunteer at a shelter though. I volunteer for a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the second chance rescue & placement of all kitties that come through our system. We also do Trap & Release (TNR) projects in partnership with our local animal shelter. They will spay/neuter, clip their ear, then we release them back where we trapped them. The shelter does this without charge for feral cats only. It's a fabulous program! That's how I was able to get my colony under control.
I'll check into the humane society on Monday & keep you posted. Thanks again ^..^
Thanks Opus! It's such a travesty that they're inflicting this neglect & torture on these defenseless babies! By the way, the baby that went to the vet has a severe hernia. She said that she's about 6wks old, (she looks like she's 3wks). I'll post a picture of her on my page, you can tell me what you think.
I already emailed our governor, not sure how long it will take. If I don't hear back from her in a week, I'll send an email daily!
Anyhow, thanks for the well wishes Opus! I'll keep you posted. BTW I've been trying to send you & Jade a note since yesterday, but the site's not allowing it. Have you received any notes from anyone else? Or is it just me?
That shelter most definitely needs to be closed down! I would try to contact your local humane society and see what they suggest. I'm thinking maybe get some volunteers at the shelter that you work at and possibly get a petition signed.
Let us know what the humane society suggests, if you decide to call them.
OMG....I cried reading this. You have such a huge heart and are truly an angel for doing what you do.
my heart breaks whenever I hear such stories....all those innocent little babies...
I can't help you with any answers Feral, I am in Canada and don't know the US laws...I hope someone else with some knowledge will pipe in, CML? Jade? Pip?
I am so thankful where I live its a NO kill shelter, of course Im not blind I do believe when theres over population euthanasia does take place...and I know how hard this is on the staff when such things are inevitable.
God bless good people like you, I hope and pray for these little ones they will get healthy and one day find homes and the love they deserve.
