This makes me angry - but at least this tragedy prompted a change. With any luck at all, such a sorrowful thing will never happen again.

She was microchipped!!!!

"The animal control officer from Henderson County Sheriff told me that I couldn't pick up until Tuesday when they reopened," Jarvis recalls. "He assured me she was fine and told me there was no way I could get her before Christmas."

i am APPALLED & DISGUSTED, HOW DARE THEY!!!!!

The SOB Manager said ''If the family member doesn't come back within 24 hours we put em down.''

That is no "shelter" and 72 hours is not long enough. Where is the petition. RIP poor innocent baby.

no more killing 'shelter' which is actually a slaughter house. if they don't want to help why take all def defenseless animals in at first?

Lack of human integrity! Saw this happen at one of our shelters. I went back to rescue this dobe and they had already put her down. I was and will forever be angry at the way some shelters are run. So sorry for these people :(

First of all, I feel such grief for this poor dog and family. Second, there should be severe retribution and it should be the last thing those pieces of shit ever do-period.

Noted with sadness and anger...I'm so sorry for the family, and of course for the poor dog...As for the scumbags at that so called shelter...I have nothing but disgust and anger...They are just murderers, and are not human beings...

ONLY WISHED THIS FATHER WOULD HAVE EITHER CALLED HIS BOSS AND EXPLAINED WHAT HAPPENED AND TOLD HIS BOSS HE WOULD BE RUNNING A LITTLE LATE "OR" FLAT OUT CALLED IN SICK AND WENT AND GOT THEIR DOG FIRST THING WHEN THE SHELTER OPENED. INSTEAD HE WORKED LATE ON CHRISTMAS EVE WHILE MOST OTHERS CLOSE EARLIER ON THAT DAY. I BELIEVE HE LOVED HIS DOG BUT HIS DOG WAS NOT ENOUGH OF A PRIORITY!

ALSO AGREE THAT FAR TO MANY OF THESE SHELTER ARE TO QUICK TO EUTHANIZE, BUT PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE STORY TOLD THAT THE MAN COULD HAVE PICKED THE DOG UP THE NEXT DAY, THE DAY THE FATHER WORKED LATE AND "DIDN'T" GET HIS HIND END TO THAT SHELTER! I FEEL FOR THAT POOR DOG.
