  1. Glad to see this organization being run by an adult, who acknowledges her public safety responsibilities!

    My spidey sense tells me that the whistleblower is a Pit Nutter afflicted with “rescue angel” syndrome.

  2. personally, I’d rather see questionable animals put down humanely then animals put down because of lack of room at the shelter, animals returned due to behavior issues, and children biten by dogs not fit for adoption. Some people have this idea that every animal can be saved, you only need to find the right person to handle it. Such people are in very short supply. Reality is we can’t save them all.

  3. History has taught us that pit bulls often “blow up” months or years after passing temperament tests. Testing may screen out a percentage but is no guarantee and should not qualify the animal as safe.

    More than a year after all this publicity, I stand by my choices. It is beyond imperative that shelter managers/directors/administrators – whatever their title be, realize there is and will be forever a commitment to public safety.

    Without that, whose lives are we saving?

    And should a dog bite happen, then, I ask you honestly, where will the animals go? Dog bite = no shelter.

    HOWEVER – there are quite literally thousands of incredible animals waiting for homes. Help by being a part of the solution and your life will improve as well. Adopt.

    Thank you.
