signed, I have a question, can anyone just run a shelter? In that case, I see why this "shelter" is run the way it is - abusive, maniacal, brutal, ignorant, evil people decided they would start a shelter so they could get their jollies off hurting these poor animals. Psychopathic, extremely violent types who enjoying anything and anybody that can't fight back or who are to kind and trustworthy to fight back. I truly wish that the evil that these types of people inflict on these animals or anyone they come into contact with, get it back 10-fold!

Noted, tweeted, signed, tweeted, and shared. People who work in animal shelters should care about animals.
So sad that people who should pet them, love them, feed them, give medical care, and take care of them inflicts pain on them. I guess many people who work in shelters are only working there for a job; they don't get paid much so they don't care. We see that in some nursing homes. To protect animals and people we should pay those who work with animals and sick people more money; then we would have a choice on who was hired and determine whether or not the hired individual cared. More training and education would help also.

Petition noted signed. Thank you Beth for bringing this to everyone's attention and also to my good friend Nicky for forwarding me this link so that I could sign the petition. This is a disgrace - an animal rescue shelter is where an animal should go to be looked after when no one else wants it, where it should be cared and loved until a new family is found - not somewhere where it will be treated inhumanely and cruely, possibly worse than where it came from in the first place! I am so sick and tired of reading/hearing how man's enjoyment of abusing the "voiceless" dumb animals in our society goes on without any repercussions - why on earth can't we live side by side and enjoy their contribution to our world? What rights do we have to harm them, all animals ever do for us is to provide us with their love if they are pets, food if they are livestock and their beauty if they are in the wild - what wonderful creatures they are! How does man repay them, we abuses them, well this needs to stop!
