This is sad
posted 2 years ago
Dogs in this so called shelter is in horrible conditions. they left on the sun with no shade and very little watter. And I can't call a staff friendly at all.
Pros: Do they care?
Cons: They need a new facility and employees

I was attacked by 2 dogs on the street. The dogs were locked in the owner's garage after that. The owner called many times and so did I to request that animal control pick up the dogs. They said it was the owner's responsibility to bring the dogs in. At the point these dogs ripped my arm apart should have been the moment that these dogs were not allowed to be in contact with anyone except "professionals". When the owner finally got a hold of someone they were told that they had to bring the dogs in within a few hours. The owner was unable to do it so her mother had to do it. While the mother was loading a 110lb dog and 70-80lb dog into the truck an animal control officer drove up and did not offer any assistance. He even had the truck for animals. When the mother arrived at animal control the 110lb dog lunged forward and pulled her to the ground and she ended up at Urgent Care. My concern is that at any point those dogs could have attacked another person. How would you like to walk out of animal control and be face to face with two very large dogs that attacked a person. The owners were irresponsible which resulted in the attack. After the attack animal control was irresponsible in not taking care of the public. They my be overworked and understaffed but at minimum their job is to protect the public.
Cons: Not protecting people from dangerous dogs, communication
