While advocates push for needed shelter reform, HSUS blames volunteers- A MUST READ!

ver Memorial Day Weekend, the staff at the animal 'shelter' in Forrest City, AR left 14 dogs out in a run together for the entire weekend while they went on vacation. The dogs included both males and females, and two female dogs that were unaltered and in heat. The dogs were left there for at least 10 hours unsupervised and without water on a 91 degree day.

A volunteer that was near the shelter stopped by to check that the ACOs had put the dogs up for the night only to find multiple injured dogs. Because it was a holiday weekend, there was no veterinarian available and a Labrador retriever, named Bozo, went into shock and tragically died from his injuries.
