Treats on the Internets

A detailed look at the people, groups, and positions for and against Prop B in Missouri

Pet owners in West Terre Haute, IN are being subjected to a newly passed ordinance which is pretty broad in its scope.  Among the items included:

The ordinance states that a town enforcement agency or designee “shall be permitted to inspect at any time the premises and all animals located thereon where such animals are harbored. If neglect or abuse is apparent, animal may be seized immediately.”

In addition, an animal owner can be given 12-hour notice to provide veterinary care to an animal before being cited by ordinance enforcement authorities, according to the ordinance.

A former staffer at The McIntosh Co Animal Shelter in GA claims she was fired for being a Pitbull advocate.  She’s now speaking out about the shelter director’s bias against the breed.  The director says that’s untrue and it’s simply a case of a disgruntled employee trying to get attention.

One thought on “Treats on the Internets

  1. our local SPCA had a cat program called “Free to a REALLY Good Home” that was massively successful.
    They did complete checks as they would for an adoption with a donation and just the promotion of the program made people aware of the need to adopt the cats.
