Is at the HS. Two of them, one isn't on the listings yet. It really bums me out because I OFFERED to help them find the dogs homes. :( The home before my friend owned him abused him, so his worst problem is with men. He's been hit by a car on a few occasions. He was used for breeding and nearly never allowed inside. It's not so much that they have too many animals, it's that they are moving from SD to Texas, and don't want to haul four dogs, 11 horses, and 2 cats down there. They still have 2 female Cocker's left. They will probably still be used for breeding. :(

Wait was your friend the one who used him for breeding and nearly never let him outside? Either way I hope he finds a fantastic home where he will be loved for the rest of his life.

He was used mainly for breeding, and never allowed inside. I felt terrible for him, and the others!

I remember one time when my friends step dad picked up one of the Cockers by her ears, and threw (literally threw) her outside...
If I saw him doing that now he'd have a whole new ass hole ripped.

Well, he got adopted anyway....here's hoping he ended up in a GREAT home!

Was the other dog a Cocker, too? 'Cuz I don't see him on the website :( .

Did you notice they recently stopped their "spay/neuter before adoption" policy? I wonder what happened. Did their vet quit? Did they lose funding? I should ask next time I go in. I'm greatly concerned. It's not a huge deal with dogs (because dogs aren't in heat too often), but putting unaltered cats into homes is just plain irresponsible, even with a "contract" (that really can't be enforced).

I noticed that too. I told my friend about her dog getting adopted.

Yeah, I know quite awhile back they did it that way again. I wouldn't be suprised if they lost funding with the economy going the way it is... You'll have to tell me what you find out!!

It can't have been TOO long ago, because I was in last month sometime and all the female kittens had shaved bellies and spay scars.

I hope they can get their program back. Before they started it, EVERY female cat I knew that was adopted from the HS got pregnant at least once before she could be spayed, and a few of the dogs, too. I don't think shelters should allow an unaltered pet (females, and cats, especially) out of their control. At the very least they should drop the pet at the vet of your choice and let you pick them up and pay for the procedure from there.
