Q: Website problem

I asked a question about Wal Mart and giving away puppies and kittens. I received several answers, but there seems to be no way to respond to them. I'll do it here. All good advice, but the problem is that our No Kill Shelter here is always full; they only take animals in if they are threatened with death, or if there is no choice (animals dumped at the Shelter, for example). All the city Pound does is round up animals and kill them (between 25 and 30 dogs A WEEK, sometimes as many as 60). So I guess it's telling the WM manager and talking to the people giving the animals away.

we have also had troube with people giving away or even selling animals at wal-mart. it is in violation of their policies. a friend of mine contacted the corporate office and they finally stepped up. if we see it all we have to do is go to the manager- they call the police and the people are made to leave. if the dogs are in danger then the police can pick them up. most cities have laws against selling on the streets with out a liscence. luckily ours is stepping up if we call about selling on the side of the road also. our HS is always full- i work with a rescue group and at any time have 16 foster dogs at my house- EDUCATION is the key. spay/neuter your pets- we don't need more puppies/kittens to be dumped

You could be describing my town - sometimes life just doesn't give you much to work with. Could you write an editorial to the local paper detailing the animal and humane issues. If you do your part to educate the community, maybe a few people will step up the effort to help.

I talk to the stores about this problem, and I often threaten to not shop there anymore if they dont stop people from giving away animals outside. Luckily we can take in animals from these places and re home them at our shelter

Thanks for that advice and I'm saddned by the "pound's" process... I too get mad at the people at WalMart because it shows irresponsibility in breeding and care. Here's a question for your question: Is it true that the location of the shelter is somewhat "secretive" so that people don't drop off dogs there!? I have heard that, but I haven't heard officially if that is true...
