Yadkin County Animal Shelter

The animals (once again) need YOU to write letters for them.

It does not matter what part of the world you are from - they need your support.

Take a look at the attached pictures - They will bring tears to your eyes and make you sick to your stomach.  Each pictures has a brief description about what is in the picture.  All pictures were taken on 1/14/05.

Letters need to be written to our 4 NEW commissioners.  They need to be reminded of the Yadkin County Animal Shelter conditions. You can make reference to giving FRESH/CLEAN water to each animal, you can make sure they give WARM bedding during our freezing conditions, you can tell them to make sure that puppies are euthanized with a needle (NOT the GAS box, that you will see in one of the pictures below, they can be told to buy FOOD BOWLS, and not throw the food onto the ground, etc. 

Pictures can be worth a thousand words................  Please help by writing to the following Yadkin County Commissioners ASAP:

Yadkin County animal shelter is affiliated with the Department of Animal Control. Conditions at the shelter are unpleasant and dangerous to the animals. Approximately 53 animals a week are euthanized inhumanely in a box pumped full of gas.

Some pet owners leave their unwanted animals at the shelter thinking that animal control will see that they get adopted out. This is not the case. THEY WILL BE KILLED IF THEY ARE TURNED IN WITHOUT RABIES TAGS. CALL THE YCHS FIRST!!!!!!!!!!
