Robeson County Animal Shelter
255 Landfill Rd
St. Pauls, NC 28384
For those who don’t follow Robeson County Animal Shelter’s postings on Facebook, I wanted to share that they are planning to kill these dogs at 8am tomorrow. These are healthy dogs – not medically hopeless and suffering – and none have any serious behavioral problems noted by the shelter on FB. They are being killed because, per the FB posting, they are “out of time”.
Residents of Robeson County, NC – this is your community animal shelter funded by your taxes. Does this shelter’s practice of killing healthy pets because of an arbitrary date on the calendar reflect your values and beliefs? If it doesn’t, use your power as a tax paying citizen to call for reform. Contact your county commissioners and if you don’t get results, work your way up the legislative ladder. Robeson County is entitled to a culture of compassion at their animal shelter. The needless killing of healthy pets is not compassionate. And positive change does not happen while kind-hearted people sit idle.
