No words needed to describe the love CARE volunteers have for their charges.

The warden is indeed given a summary of why a dog failed the behavior evaluation along with aRead More recommendation to euthanize for not. Also, in the case of Jesse, he was scheduled to be retested, but the warden made the decision to euthanize him before the retest was done. Pretty much all dogs that fail their behavior evaluation are retested after 2 weeks to see if there is improvement. Sometimes a dog may be restested several times for example when they are very shut down during the evaluation.

This was addressed earlier. Warden Teckler sent Linda Gelb (President and behavior evaluator), anRead More email at 8:30 AM stating that Jessie would be euthanized. Linda Gelb wrote back "Thank you." She gave no indication whatsoever that there were plans to retest her.

Diane -- A summary is not the same as access to the full evaluation.
A CARE volunteer looks after one of the many cats at the shelter.

I shudder to imagine the motives for a fifty percent increase in adoption fees when they are sittingRead More on 1.3 MILLION! If they hadn't absorbed the rising cost of medical care, I guess they would only have 1.2 million. In point of fact, a lower adoption fee would quite likely lead to an increase in adoptions. Why not jack the cost up to three hundred per animal and require 3 different background and credit checks for potential adopters?
Hooper, sit!
