At least you have someone to call, out in the country we have nobody to call. If you call the sheriff's office it is a joke, they don't want to deal with the dogs dumped in the country or owners who have 30 dogs and don't take care of them. I was really hoping our new judge would help out. I heard that land and a building was going to be donated for an animal shelter but our new judge said NO.
All the city had to do was provide an employee. I just wish we could get someome elected that cared about the animals in the country. Yes, I know money is tight, but if it was run correctly, I know you could get a lot of volunteers.
You could also use it for people to have another choice for community service.
