Petitioning Weatherford, TX Animal Shelter

Stop the unnecessary killing of animals tagged for rescue!


The Weatherford shelter would rather kill animals than save them. The goal of most shelters is to help homeless pets find a home, to help rescues save the dogs. However, Weatherford has proven that they put the animals last. This was the unfortunate case for a dog, formerly known as Buddy. Microchipped, neutered and fully vaccinated, Buddy had learned tricks and commands, walked well on the leash and was a happy, year old lab mix. He was in foster with a group that unfortunately was shut down, and even though there was correspondence from multiple parties searching for the dogs the rescue had that were taken by animal control, most went unanswered or ignored. Slowly the dogs started emerging at the shelters they were originally from, except for a few the ended up staying at Weatherford. Most of those dogs were not even online when Buddy was finally spotted on the Weatherford website. A rescue tagged him, sent a volunteer to go pick him up, yet he wasn't anywhere to be found, but several other dogs they did not even bother to post were! It was soon revealed that poor Buddy had been the victim of negligence and lack of compassion. The shelter workers neglected to put the rescue information on his kennel card and a PERFECTLY HEALTHY, HIGHLY ADOPTABLE dog was killed! Buddy was MURDERED by this shelter, even though a rescue was coming to get him! The people in charge need to be held responsible for his and every other unnecessary death that occurs at the shelter! Stop the murder of animals tagged for rescue!
