CCDP Needs Help!

posted 6 years ago

I adopted one of my dogs from the pound several months ago. She is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met, without a doubt. She was days away from euthanasia.

Her coat was a solid mat and she had feces stuck in it as well as urine scald around her tail. She had a severe cough and needed to be seen by a vet ASAP. Unfortunately, due to lack of funds, CCDP cannot afford to have each and every dog that comes in checked at the vet's. I do wish that someone would have taken the time to at least shave those mats away from poor Katie's skin....there was absolutely no salvaging her fur and we took her in to our vet the very next morning following her adoption. The poor girl was a mess, but she's since improved and is back to being happy, healthy, and loved very, very much.

I found Katie via Petfinder. The posting said she was available for adoption the very next day, so that morning I woke up early to drive the 3 hours north to see her and try to adopt her. But when I got there, I was told the warden didn't know if she was available...why there wasn't paperwork or something saying that she was or wasn't, I have no idea. It was quite a hassle, to say the least, to get this dog out of there before she was scheduled to be put to sleep in 3 days. But all that matters is that I was able to get her out and now she's safe and sound.

This is a very rural dog pound...and in great need of more funding. The surrounding area, in addition, needs to be more educated on responsible pet ownership, including spaying and neutering. Part of the reason why this is such a high kill facility is because there is such a rampant overpopulation and stray problem in the county.

Pros: Low adoption fee

Cons: Very high kill, dogs are not given much time before euthed, and it is often difficult to reach the staff

Many dogs need a second chance!

posted 6 years ago

It breaks my heart every week to see so many dogs up for euthanasia at this shelter. It seems like there are no local adopters. To their credit, there are some very dedicated volunteers who post all over the country for rescues. I know it must be hard work and the dogs that make it out to new homes must appreciate it. Personally, I could never volunteer here though because it would kill me to see so many put down.

Pros: the facility is very rescue friendly

Cons: dogs are given almost no time to find new homes
