      Amherst, NY

Cattaraugus County taxpayers demand fiscal responsibility. We the people demand that the violations of contract between the Cattaraugus County SPCA and County municipalities by recognized and addressed through the immediate termination of all public funding to the Cattaraugus County SPCA.

The Cattaraugus County SPCA is in breach of municipal contracts in the following ways: failure to spay/neuter and vaccinate all adopted animals, failure to provide adequate veterinary care for sick and ailing animals, failure to answer/respond to phone calls from the public regarding stray, abandoned and/or injured animals, failure to provide adequate facilities for the proper care and sheltering of animals.

Again, we, the undersigned, support and expect the immediate termination of any and all municipal funding for the Cattaraugus County SPCA.  Alternative animal control services are already lined up, at no additional cost to the taxpayer.

      in 2011 around christmas time i adopted a great dane from there. she had porcupine quills in her throat and stomach.. when we went to get her surgery to get them removed the vet then noticed that she had a broken jaw.. it recently happened because it wasnt healed yet!!! it happened while she was in the facility!!! they also told us that the day we seen her which was the day before christmas that they were goin to put her down. so they were goin to kill her on christmas?? we left and thats all my family could think of.. that this poor scared alone dog that just lost her puppy was going to be killed on christmas!!! needless to say we went back and got her.. she is now healthy and happy. she has been with us for 2 years and is now finally starting to recover from the terror and pain that she had to suffer through!!!! how disgusting!! they should be shut down!! some one at that facility broke her jaw!!! and it is broke on the bottom right in the front and middle.. she is afraid of feet as if someone kicked her in her jaw!! she is scared of females so im thinking it was a female that did it to her!!!

      I have seen the deplorable conditions here at this shelter and this is abuse and neglect.I would not adopt an animal from here because they look so sickly with discharge from eyes.Cats just pace the floor in their cages and have no social life whatsoever.This is inhumane and unacceptable!It is time for someone to look into this matter.Cats have been here for some 3 years because no one wants to bring home a sick animal.Shelters are supposed to help animals not hurt them.

      I believe that we should AT LEAST give the respect to the animals that provide so much for us. The video is dispicable andI wonder why there has not been any legal ramifications to the low life scums that allow these animal to suffer, it is sickening to know that an agency collects monies from the public and does NOTHING for the animals. Why are these subhumans allowed to be in charge for so long. We must do whatever we can to rid these poor animals of the leaches that are supposedly taking care of them. I live in Oklahoma but I would come up there to bring as many as I could home with me and give them the respect and love they deserve. This is animal cruelty at least WHY has NOTHING BEEN done? Are they reporting themselves as a non profit org? Why haven't they been turned in to the IRS? I know that there are Federal and State agencies that could rid society of these low life's. Please someone contact me, I want to get help for these animals....they are literally going crazy due to lack of care. Why has this been allowed to go on for so long. I am truly perplexed that each day goes by and all of these animals are suffering SO MUCH and so needlessly. Please contact me, I really will not rest until I know that some real action is going to happen. Where are the officials for the town and county. Maybe they too should be held responsible for dereliction of their duties. EXPOSÉ THE HECK OUT OF ALL THOSE WHO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS DISASTER. You must make people be accountable for this repulsive guise of helping animals. I WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH WHOM E VER I CAN TO HEAVE EVERYONE OUT AND BE HELD LEGALLY RESPONSIBE,,,YOU HAVE Not heARD THE LAST FROM ME I PROMISE
