Two years to find a solution

June 9, 2013

Has the Wood County Commission gone beyond its legally required responsibility in the control of animals? And, has the commission been “forced” into financially supporting and supplementing the......

Well I guess maybe you should just walk in there and do it your self then. Maybe the solution to the problem is the over breeding needs to stop! And spay and neuter there pets. Maybe having permits to breed would cut down on the problem. I've seen people standing in front of walmart selling puppy's out of vehicle! Come on! Or i hear " oh it's cute to see my cat or dog have puppy's" just for the sake of having puppies. Then can't get rid of them, so well just take them to humane society. The animals are the one that suffer, they didn't ask for this life to be shoved into a cage to await there death sentence. I work and pay taxes, for what? Just to work in Parkersburg I have to pay five dollars a pay check, and that goes to what? A trail to walk on a bike path? I'd rather see it go to the care of a animal in need or a child in need. I'm sure this state can come up with a better idea.

I believe if you want to breed your dog and sell the puppies you should have a kennel license. After all it wouldn't be hard to catch the folks breaking the law just check the Bulletin Board, Craigslist, or pet stores. Charge a higher dog license if you have an unaltered dog. There are ways to stop backyard breeding it just takes work and education.

Animal Hater. First word in Humane Society is "Humane", I am not seeing where "If it is convenient and the law allows it"

Yes I agree HUMANE, there's the cost of food, medical, employees salary and utilities, they must think there just tossed in a cage to await there fifth day. A lot of them come in injured, under weight, loaded with fleas. They have to be treated. The staff and volunteers work hard and have a lot of compassion and love for these animals, I can't imagine the stress of not finding homes for them and picking the one that is NEXT. Animals have feelings also they hurt and are scared just like we would be. Some has to stand up for them and care for them. That's a Humane society

Here is the thing Mr.Smith. It is clear you do love animals but that is beside the point. Why does the Humane Society bother with cats? Because they love animals. Why do they keep animals after the 5 days? Because they love animals. Why do they spend money on medicines? Why do they spend hours working with scared animals that others may have determined unadoptable? I am thinking you may not be the brightest but can figure out the answer - THEY LOVE THE ANIMALS. Get a clue Mr. Smith. And stop using your position at the paper to promote your hatred of the shelter and what they are trying to do. I can see nothing better than taxes going to help the helpless. I would much rather have money going towards a HUMANE SOCIETY than other useless things. 2 years to find a solution??? They have found a solution-the spay and neuter clinic. It will save thousands of lives and yes Mr. Smith...even your prescious tax dollars.

It is very arrogant and ignorant to believe that "we Taxpayers" are not responsible! "We Taxpayers" are the same people who neglect to spay and neuter our pets...of course it is our responsibility to fully support the HSOP. I think "Mr. Smith" just has a little ole ax to grind. First day on the job?

Animals are perfect,unlike human beings(a misnomer),who is not perfect. Animals do not have the ability to hate,only love. Some domesticated animals will bite you,but only if they are trained. I make substantial contributions to the humane society,the ascpa,the defenders of wildlife,tiger creek sanctuary,and others. I am blessed that I can make contributions to aid in preserving domestic animals and wildlife. We are judged by not how we treat our children ,spouse,other family members and friends,but animals. Abuse an animal, and you will abuse the previous list.

Would it not be wrong to put down wayward teenagers when caught within a few days after found,after refusing to return home? They're more then likely to grow to be violent criminals,full of abuse,a physical,emotional and financial drain on society,and most lacking in the ability to love,unlike the 4 legged animal

Good post Guy- Let me put it this way, put both your spouse and dog in the trunk for a day. When you go open it, who do you think would be so glad to see you?
