  1. All for the humans…how sad…they take for there fun and pleasure…the animals suffer..what kind of people are these..and the community respected them for years…
    How sad ,how terrible,
    I hope there are sum big consequences for this behavior !!!!!!!
    Can not be minimized….!!

    I still wonder what was behind that man who was gonna shoot the animals??
    U never hear the full story..they always keep sumthing back…..

  2. i feel like this place is always struggling. always needing more money, always asking for help. is it just bad management or what? or does gf just have the highest number of abandoned pets in the country? this place will be lucky to get a dollar in the future with this scar on their record , obviously they needed all that money to pad their pockets.
