It has been more than a year since this facility was asked to photograph all the animals in it's care and to post them online.  We have been met with rudeness, ignorance and hostility.  They continue to kill most of the animals that are so unfortunate to find themselves there.

It is understood that Dublin Laurens Humane Society kills 80% to 90% of the animals that enter their facility. Reports have been requested, and they have refused to release their numbers. Most of their funding is from tax dollars. Building a No Kill Community, saving the lives of more of the community's companion animals will make Laurens County a better place to live for everyone. Dublin Laurens Humane Society must implement the No Kill Equation.

In order to accomplish this, there must be a regime change. Removal of the entire Board of Directors and Director of the facility, Irene Sumner, is essential.

NO KILL REVOLUTION QUOTE OF THE DAY... It is the good in "people" that will bring about a No Kill nation. The difference in traditional sheltering and the no kill movement is that we believe that most people are compassionate and will help shelter pets if the community leaders lead the way.

      We have said for a long time that it is time for a regime change at DLHS. Its PAST time. It has been nearly a YEAR, 365 days, 52 weeks ago that we requested they put pictures online of each and every animal in their possession. In a YEAR they have "not had the time". They are uncaring, lazy and incompetent, and they must go!

      I have been to our local shelter, and horrified by the behavior of the staff and conditions these animals live in. They are better off being in the wild than living in the hell we call the laurens county "humane" shelter. There is nothing humane about this place or the workers attitudes.

      I am truly an animal lover and I hate to see animals treated in such manner. This is a horrible thing to do to animals. We as people need to be the voice for them because they can't speak for themselves. I will truly be glad to stand up and be their voice.
