Barrow County Animal Shelter is one of the worst shelters I have ever dealt with, personally. I do hope that a difference can be made by bringing awareness to the ongoing miscommunication that seems to be preventing animals from having any chance of being saved at this shelter. You have my support.

This is beyond wrong. The commissioners need to get there and check the facility out in person and then immediately make changes. If they don't think there is a problem, then they do not need to be in the position they are in and need to be replaced with someone who has compassion and can have the the shelter the way it should be run, This is hell for these dogs.

Horrible shelter - they would not let my daughter and I adopt a dog !! We ended adopting a dog from GA ASPCA in Suwannee ! Barrow County Animal Control were very mean to us and told us the dogs were not adoptable !!! So very sad

Why would they kill a dog if rescuers are coming. They are blood thirsty bandits.

Where is the story?

They need compassionate people to work in the shelter. They definitely need a fence, so volunteers can go in and walk the dogs. The city needs to intervene and upgrade the facility, to make it more humane for the cats and dogs. They seem to find the money for other stuff, they can find the money to help these animals. I for one, and my kids also...would love to volunteer and help. But, I will not put myself or my kids through a day of rudeness with the ones who are working there now. The place needs a complete overhaul, inside and out.

Texas shelter have this same problem. The county doesn't want to help, the state doesn't want to help, so it is left up to the individual cities to take care of their shelter animal.. They lack in man power and funding. The state nor government make it easy to get available grants. It is a rollercoaster ride of red tape and many cities don't have the resource to devote to all this red tape. It is then left up to the citizens to create a volunteer program that can provide behavior and medical...

It is then left up to the citizens to create a volunteer program that can provide behavior and medical observation, medical care, and many of these orgs are people who live paycheck to paycheck. Until government entities make grants more available to pay for these much needed services, and make stricter laws about animal steriiization and availability to the public, nothng is going to change.
