Such A Shame

I recently heard what a hard time the Smithville, Tennessee Animal Shelter is having. They are overcrowded and could probably use more staff. The mayor of Smithville even paid them a visit in the last few days. Unfortunately, the instructions were given to euthanize unclaimed animals after a 10 day stay there. All of the animals currently at the shelter have until December 14th, before they are euthanized. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, if you are in the area and have considered adopting a pet, take some time to visit this shelter. Their number is 615-597-1363 and the shelter is open 7:30 A.M. until 12:30 P.M. Monday-Saturday. Their address is: 535 Shaw St. You may very well find your best friend there! For more information on the shelter and their situation click HERE and HERE. I know this sermon is old folks, but we must educate everyone on spaying and neutering pets! So many shelter animals are a result of unwanted litters. It just isn't fair to these animals to be brought into the world just to be euthanized!

That makes me sad. Ironically, over here West TN I just read that the no-kill shelter in Jackson, TN is in danger of closing... here's that article from today's Jackson Sun. :(

I heard on the news about the Smithville shelter. Apparently that has always been the policy, but they were able to not enforce it... until now.
