We died today. We had fosters who went to the pound to get us and were told NO. We had rescues coming for us and yet we died today. Why did the men at the pound feel like we should die? What did we do to them? Why did we die today? Why?
Today, April 16th 2013, 5 black lab mix puppies were murdered at this pound after multiple efforts for rescue were ignored and denied. Volunteers made attempts to rescue these animals and they were told that the pound staff was too busy, or they were closed and would not return to the pound to allow pick up. Logan County Dog Pound even denied a women from filling out an application for rescue. When a volunteer spoke with one employee and was told that the dogs would not be put down and able to be rescued in the morning he lied and the dogs were put down anyway. This is not the first time that this has happened here. This pound does not even cooperate with volunteers who are willing to come in and take pictures of the dogs to post for better rescue chances.
This senseless killing of adoptable animals is wrong and must be put to an end NOW!
Please help me make a difference in honor of the 5 babies who lost their lives today who should have had a chance at a wonderful long and happy life. Someone must be held accountable for this atrocity. Help me force the Logan County Dog Pound to stop the murdering of innocent adoptable animals by removing imprudent employees and replacing them with new staff passionate about animal rescue and safety. Work with shelters, rescues and volunteers to ensure animals are able to find new homes.
I will be sending this petition to the following! They must help us fight this horrible unpunished crime!
