@BarackObama@MichelleObama U.S. #TENNESSEE COFFEE COUNTY ANIMAL CONTROL!! These faces are the few of many that die at what is to be called an Animal Shelter. The top picture an elderly Chihuahua froze. ..yes froze to death last night in a shelter that does NOT allow beds, blankets, or shavings. The only thing this baby had was a cold iced over concrete floor!! Patrons offering to foster, offering to supply blankets and beds yet was told NO!. The beautiful German Sheppard. . Cash brought in as a stray happy hyper just a little skinny. .wasted away on a concrete floor from parvo and heartworm at least got to be held while dying as he was put to sleep at the vet which could have been avoided if care was given!!!
Corrie the beautiful coon hound was hit by a car and sit for a week in Animal Control before she was able to walk out to be seen and taken to the vet. Months of rehabilitation and being spoon fed by an amazing foster saved this baby.
Right now the darker it gets the colder it gets and there are 20+ dogs lying on the cold concrete floor and waiting for what? ? To be sprayed down in the morning during kennel cleaning in freezing temperatures. To wait for the sun to hopefully get warm and bright enough to reach the inside of the shelter so they have a dry place to sleep. Yet this isn't animal cruelty. . So what is? Fighting dogs? Seen that too. This shelter has no quarantine area. Dogs will break through the kennels to kill others. Not having proper shelter? A simply roof is not proper shelter in conditions like these. Starvation? A small bowl of food to last all day whether your 5 pounds or 75 pounds. Abuse? These dogs get drug in and out by catch poles vicious or not. So if this isn't animal cruelty and wrong doing. . . What is???
