This is going to be a rant so be warned….

Animal control… has a duty to enfore the laws of the county regarding the treatment of  the animals in that county.

If a member of the public fails to provide vet care to a sick or injured animal, animal control steps in and removes the animal and the ppl who had care and control of that animal are arrested and charged with animal abuse.

 Pretty  cut and  dry you  may think…. yes?

It seems the same treatment of the public does not apply to  animal control… read on …

Can someone help or does anyone have any contacts in the area? The dog is still there as of tonight. They do not have vet help.

8/23 Poor Oliver has been hit by a car and is need of some medical attention. He doesn’t use his back legs and seems miserable. He is about 30-35 pounds. If you are interested in this pet, please contact
Harlan Rescue Coordinator

I don’t give a flying fig if AC has no  vet   or no money, this animal should have seen a vet or have been  euth’d on intake, instead it is left  to  lay there in pain, alone and scared on a hard concrete floor, unable to move.

Harlan County Animal Shelter  needs  to be brought to book  on this  one… I am furious and heartbroken at the same time.
