I just spoke with Deputy Powers and he is aware of the situation. He would not tell me more than that. I offered our assistance to possibly help in some way, but at this point he is not requesting our assistance. He has my phone number and will call if he needs anything.

Unfortunately, if law enforcement is not requesting our help there is not much I can do. I will try to check back with him.

I am just surprised by this. I keep hearing how the county doesn't have funds to help with animal rescue so why would you turn down help when offered?

Because the HSUS is a communist organization with ties to PETA?

From what I hear the sheriff's office is working on this case now.

Wow, I can understand your passion for the cause, but do you realize how little you know about the case, law enforcement and legal processes, yet you just blasted them? Because they couldn't use your help at the moment, you don't even know if they're waiting for a warrant or the County Attorney or whatever. You said they would contact you if they did, but you go to social media and splash a headline like that anyway. I think you owe them an apology and delete the post.

So much for being humane. Lady you have some nerve. Just because you offered helpdoes not means you are the right help needed. You need to be professional and not bash the police. You can look up professional in the dictionary. It is clear by your actions you are clueless.

"Deputy politely declines assistance at this time." Doesn't have the same ring to it?

I wouldn't have anything to do with the Humane Society (of politicians)

Despite the words “humane society” in its name, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) isn’t affiliated with any community-based humane societies or other pet shelters. HSUS doesn’t run a single pet shelter, nor does it serve as a national headquarters for humane societies that serve cities, towns, counties or states...

...In fact, very little money given to the Humane Society of the United States will ever reach a pet shelter. According to HSUS’s 2008 tax return, less than half of one percent (0.5%) of HSUS budget consisted of grants to hands-on pet shelters. And in 2009, again according to HSUS’s the tax returns, less than one percent of HSUS’s budget (0.8%, to be exact) consisted of grants to shelters.

Despite its annual budget of more than $100 million, the Humane Society of the United States doesn’t actually provide much hands-on care to pets. HSUS and its affiliated groups have more than $191 million in assets, $160 million of which HSUS itself holds. And HSUS has put away millions in an executive pension plan—more than $16 million since 1998. During the same period, HSUS shared less money with pet shelters....

...HSUS spends millions on lobbying, including costly ballot initiatives that target family farmers. HSUS’s national agenda is fundamentally focused on furthering an animal “rights” philosophy.

The Bottom Line: The Humane Society of the United States is not what it seems. HSUS is focused on winning “rights” for animals—not helping the pets depicted in its TV ads. Americans who want their contributions to impact pet shelters should give locally.

Where is Joe's "Debbie Distemper" cartoon when we need it?
