Can you believe that some guy from Greenforest droped off 20 cats and kittens at the shelter today? You would think that with all the pleas and the low cost spay clinic people would get their pets spayed so they don't wind up with unwanted litters. We already had about 20 small kittens and now we have 18 more. He still has one mother and probably won't get it spayed either. Grrrrrr...... Makes one want to strangle some people.

AT LEAST HE DID NOT THROW THEM OFF A BRIDGE, AND I FEEL YOUR FRUSTRATION!

OUT HERE IN FLORIDA LAND WHERE I AM NOW, THERE ARE ALOT OF SMALL COMMUNITIES, RURAL, THAT HAVE NO ANIMAL CONTROL, OF ANY KIND OR ANY ONE THAT HAS A PLACE FOR ANYTHING, AND A POPULAR FAMILY SPORT AROUND HERE, TURN DOGS INTO A PEN WITH A WILD HOG, WITH TUSKS, TO SEE WHO WINS, AND THE HURT DOGS, GET TOSSED OUT OF THE RING, TO DIE A SLOW DEATH ON THE GROUND, ALONE. iT IS ILLEGAL, BUT ONE MUST BE CAUGHT IN THE ACT AND I PERSONALLY CALLED THE SHERIFF MYSELF ON TWO DIFFERENT FIGHTS AND THEY MUST HAVE A SCANNER, BECAUSE ONCE THE SHERIFF GOT THERE, ALL DOGS WHERE PUT UP AND HOG IN PEN AND COMPANY SCATTERED, NOTHING TO FIND.
jUST WAS SICKENING, HAPPENING ACROSS THE STREET FROM WHERE I WAS, AND HEARING THE SCREAMS AND YELPS FROM THE ANIMALS AND THE YELLING FROM THE OWNERS, WHO HAD THEIR WHOLE FAMILIES THERE, LITTLE KIDS AND ALL OUT THERE CHEERING ON THE DOGS, TO KILL THE HOG.
aLL MY HUSBAND COULD DO TO KEEP ME FROM BEING OVER THERE IN THERE FACES, WE MOVED, BUT IT GOES ON ALL OVER THE PLACE DOWN HERE, SICK, JUST SICK!

GOOD LUCK WITH THE KITTIES, GETTING HOMES, THEY SURE ARE CUTE AND LOOK HEALTHY AT LEAST.

ANY WAY YOU CAN MAKE DEALS WITH PEOPLE, YOU WILL TAKE THEM THIS TIME BUT NEVER AGAIN, UNLESS YOU BRING REMAINING PETS INTO BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED, HARD TO MONITER, OR MAYBE WILL NOT CHARGE THEM TO DROP OFF IF THEY PAY FOR SPAY AND NEUTER OF PETS KEPT, I OFTEN WAIVED FINES IF FOLKS WOULD SPAY AND NEUTER A DOG OR CAT IN CERTAIN TIME FRAME AND BRING ME PROOF, OR I WOULD WRITE THAT TICKET. EVERYONE I GAVE THE OPTION TO, ACTUALLY DID IT, GOT THE PET FIXED AND A CHIP, SOME I REQUESTED SHOTS TOO. AND ALL WAS DONE,
MAYBE YOU GUYS CAN WORK SOMETHING LIKE THAT OUT, a BARTER SYSTEM OF SOME SORT. GET PEOPLE TO VOLUNTEER TO HELP PAY FOR SPAY OR NEUTER, ANYTHING CREATIVE TO GET IT DONE.

JUST SOME IDEAS, I AM STILL WORKING TO GET THIS DONE HERE, HERE, VOLUNTEERING TIME, AND TAKING CARE OF SOME FOSTERS, THE ANIMAL CONTROL HERE, IN THE COUNTY I LIVE IN, IS FULL SHERIFF DEPUTY AND THEY DO HORSES, GOATS, PIGS, PIGIONS, BIRDS, DOGS, CATS, WHATEVER. SHE IS JUST ONE, BUT THEY HAVE A HUGE PLACE FOR HER TO TAKE THE ANIMALS AND OTHERS ARE HIRED TO CARE FOR THEM. BIGGER, RICHER COUNTY., I GUESS

The shelter has a policy of requiring the mother with litters so she can be spayed before being adopted/returned to owner. Unfortunately too often they claim the mother died, couldn't be caught or some other excuse for not bringing her in. Appreciate your input since you understand the challenges we face everyday. Is the pig fighting a Latin tradition? Sounds like dog and chicken fighting.

It is wonderful you took them. At least they have a chance now.

Sadly, it would be the same as dog and chicken, some south tradition, i suppose, have not researched it, just saw the horrible consequences for one dog. Tried to get them caught after finding out it was not legal. Still trying...as we all are, one animal at time.

Believe me, i have heard the excuses, just like you all do, sad, especially when i have seen other humane societies and shelters since traveling and for population size, there are none that i have seen that does all that you and good shepherd does to help out folks with their pets.

Bravo to all of you who support the animals and good shepherd humane society.

Yellow cats remind me of a little kitty I had years ago. I named him Chevy, because I always wanted a little yellow Chevy.

I know how everyone likes old threads drug up but maybe the pic will ease the pain. I wanted to update on the two chainsaw kittens, Calvin and Hobbes, two weeks along. Calvin got over the sniffles and Hobbes has then now. He's getting over it. The older cats aren't to hot on them but everyone is getting along.http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2454/3635179622_11a461f635_b.jpg

The kitty smiles on those 2 faces are just PRICELESS! Glad they are doing better.

How much does it cost to adopt from the shelter?

If you live in Carroll County the adoption fee is $50 for kittens that have their shots and already spayed/neutered. If they are too young to be spayed they must be brought back to be spayed (already included in the $50. If you adopt a cat that is 6 months or older or has been at the shelter for more than 6 months then the fee is 1/2 or $25. Right now the shelter has plenty to choose from so please go out and look.
