Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Indifference at the Forrest City, Arkansas Animal Shelter

I volunteer at a local animal shelter each weekend. There was and continues to be a good amount of training. Volunteers have eagle eyes for anything that puts dogs in jeopardy. Included in the many thing you must be vigilant about is not putting two dogs together (or more!) Sometimes, and only with official sanction, can two dogs be placed together. We sometimes do this with older dogs that are very mellow and they often will respond well to the company, putting on much needed weight (shelters are stressful and most dogs lose weight).

So it is with a fair amount of disgust that I post for you the following video. Rest assured, various animal groups have this shelter's number. Still, your awareness is golden, as they say, because it makes the club to beat them with that much larger.

Be forewarned, this is a graphic video. Bottom line, shelter workers were negligent and uncaring about the welfare of the dogs in their care ... in FORREST CITY, ARKANSAS.

I will be posting about them again, and urge you to call local government officials in FORREST CITY, ARKANSAS.

I will be compiling a list of companies that do business in this area and will be posting it.
