The city issued a response to a video that someone put together showing various webcam shots. The response starts out with this tidbit of hilarity:
[…]a clear example of the uphill battle we continue to face to market the tremendous success we have made at the shelter.
AHAHAHAHAHAHA! Stop it now before milk comes out my nose!
Further silliness in all its glory follows. You can read it here if you like. The
Mad Magazine Reader’s Digest version is this:
- The cowering dogs are just like dogs at the grooming parlor. (Although at most grooming parlors, the groomer doesn’t kill the dog.)
- One ACO captured abusing pets at MAS on the webcam was wearing a different colored shirt so he’s not our problem. (Who cares about the dog?)
- All the dogs going to the kill room are really going to the adoption floor. (MAS does kill 77% of its pets, but let’s not get hung up on facts.)
- The irresponsible public!
For anyone wanting to see what actual success looks like, I am sharing a couple of shots here of Henry who got to meet Lou Ann for the first time this morning. Lou Ann is the person who would not give up in her efforts to find out about Henry while he was at MAS, despite the city’s attempts to thwart her. I love these pictures.
