Sooooo these people are all going for the dogs? Why do K-9's need money? What is this community coming to...

Really? How about the money it costs to shelter and feed the animals. I m not running but will donate to the Humane Society to make up for people like you that feel they must find criticism in an organization that volunteers the vast amt of staff to care for the animals.
