    1. Imagine that! Still trying to convince our local animal control to share lost/found pets on social media, but they just don’t have the time or money. But they do find the time and money to kill when things get crowded.

  1. Animal control in Texarkana seem to not want to reunite people with their lost pets, or help with pets that need a safe place to go, anywhere near as much as they want to punish them. Steep rise in fees guarantees more animals die – way to be a good community resources – NOT! http://www.ksla.com/story/35473049/texarkana-animal-shelter-raising-fees-for-surrenders-reclaims?clienttype=generic&utm_content=bufferb81ea&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer

  3. Here’s another article about a dog who just lived her life with no owner, looked after by locals, until she died of apparent old age in Lincoln County, NC: http://www.lincolntimesnews.com/2017/06/26/dog-frequent-sight-boger-city/

    My favorite quote: “The man that was over the dog catchers at that time said that he’d watch her, which he did for a couple of weeks. He called back and said, ‘she doesn’t bother anyone and we’re just going to leave her alone.’ That was the end of that.”

  4. Beth Vesco-Mock is leaving Las Cruces and coming to St Louis MO. She has practiced without a license, been fired from DeKalb after 6 months, killed a dog on live television, admitted to taking money from drug companies and using dogs in research, and the list goes on. People in St Louis need to be warned.
