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 just wrong.
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.
Oh My God , little Lillian and her 2 kittens are there :'(
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.
i am hopeful that higher thinking will prevail and that the people that have the power to effect change in this shelter will do the right and humane/compassionate thing.
I would love to help take care of these beautiful animals. It is our responsibility to take care of them.
Let Gwinnett Animal Welfare be your guide.
They did their job right
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.
