Because this pound is also known as HELL! They get animals from the other San Bernardino county shelters PLUS ones they pick up or are dumped on them. By law, their max. hold time has been reduced to 3 days....used to be a week...thank you California politicians! Rescues are pretty much working with one hand tied behind their back...and the pound is KNOWN for killing even when a rescue is enroute....it is just the "way they do business." County residents either don't know or don't care.

Marianne I live in Ohio, so cannot be of much direct help, but are the county commissioners the ones in charge of the pound or is it the city council members? The local people need to find who is in charge and then co-ordinate a group to be at all the meetings-usually you have to arrive early and sign-up to speak. Though it can be difficult, it is always wise to remain polite and then arm yourselves with the facts. Invite the media to attend the meetings and start getting coverage in the...

Invite the media to attend the meetings and start getting coverage in the newspapers and television. Everyone can easily write letters-to-the-editors and when they see several wriiten at the sametime, the letters will get published all on the same day. Always keep polite and stick to facts-this is about making positive change for the animals, it is not about venting anger.

I use to go in and pull cats and dogs from this shelter through a rescue that I use to work with. The person in charge of the rescue did me real wrong, and said alot of things about me that werent true. I gave my heart and soul to saving the animals at Devore and transporting them to safety. It saddens me that this has happened to this poor puppy, and it saddens me that the rescue I devoted my time and money too cares as much as the shelter itself! Too many politics and monies being stolen...

Too many politics and monies being stolen between the 2. This could of been preventable, poor puppy RIP

There was a time when I applied to work for animal control here, and when we were giving the grand tour of the facility I became so appalled over the conditions and than the supervisor said that if any animals require any medical attention at all, they just put the animal down. The first of this last this year the other animal shelter took over all of animal control in this area, and they have an animal hospital too, so that is a very good thing for this area. They too, work with the rescues...

...so they could throw it is someone's face?!?!?!?! That's what Ormond Beach did to me and my poor dogs. Money talks....especially in FL and probably CA.

I even talked to one of those animal lawyers and they said they only defend dogs. Well, sometimes defending the dog and owner giving it back to someone who will take care of it is defending the dog, not sticking up for those who have jobs killing them. They only want high profile cases they can make money off of. That is what lawyers are about also. The lawyer is working for the police and his cronies at the shelter also.

Maybe they should fire the employees and put them down because they don't have a place to live anymore.

Our rescue just received a letter from the vet we used from time to time telling us not to rescue Parvo cases and gave us "pointers" on how to pick healthy dogs. We do not discriminate any dog regardless of health if at all possible. To have people tell us who and who we can not rescue is disgusting.

I hope you no longer use this vet as they are obvioulsy in it for the money and not for the love of animals.

My shih tzu had pravo.He lived a very good life for eleven years , and brought us so much happiness. we need to have a little mercy in us. I hope it doesn't come down to us being killed off if we have cancer or such.

Was the GS rescue informed of this puppy having parvo prior to euthanasia? Would this rescue still have adopted him knowing he had parvo?

This puppy did'nt have to die! But the manager at this shelter did'nt care, he took his little life anyway despite people willing to take little Trooper on. What right has he to play God with a puppys life? This is'nt the first time he's done this and won't be the last unless he is stopped. We need people working in animal shelters who actually CARE and not out to murder innocent animals!!!!!!!!!
