It's a very imperfect system at Coweta. They are ultra rescue unfriendly & could care less if animals are saved or not. The person who wanted to rescue Bobo DID call the shelter early Wed. morning ... she begged & pleaded w/Lt. Williams not to kill him cuz she was on her way but he told her he was going to kill him in 15 minutes & would not wait for her to get there.
Other shelters would have waited & been happy rescue was on the way but not Coweta. In an ideal world, it's nice if you can save dogs in a more timely fashion but often when you're dealing w/life & death situations, you don't have the luxury of time & bottom line is, it shouldn't matter if it's days, hours or minutes in advance - if rescue is coming, you don't kill an animal.
Please send letters to the Investigative Div.Of the AG's office in GA...
I was wondering if you would be so kind as to pass this on to whomever would be in charge of investigating this animal shelter's activities.
The shelter is called:
Newnan-Coweta Animal Control
Box 191, 3150 E. Hwy. 34, Suite 209
Newnan, GA 30265
Supervisor #: 770-254-3736
The rates of "adoptable" animals being put to sleep there (that have happened as a result of the staff's incompetence and lack of compassion) are alarming.
Would you please turn this matter over to whomever does investigations -- there are a lot of people who are really upset about what has happened ----
A dog was put to sleep when they knew a rescuer was on her way to get him and apparently it is not the first time that an adoptable animal has suffered the same fate at this shelter's hands.
Please help stop the killing of adoptable animal sat this shelter.
