Town of Smithtown recently shut down their Facebook animal shelter page after ‘it had become a vehicle for lies and harassment’ — 6 Comments

  1. Isnt it odd that the last 2 Directors were both accused of mismanagement and forced to leave. Now their police dept controls the dog pound and no one knows how many dogs and cats are being killed. Its not a shelter, its a killing pound and a dump. Ive been inside. Death row murderers are treated better than the animals in this “shelter”.

    • People not active in animal rescue wouldn’t believe some of the things that go on behind the scene at kill shelters. Things are so bad in the rescue world I can’t even bring myself to write cruelty articles very often. It’s just too heartbreaking.

  2. I generally admire and support the police. However, I don’t feel they should be in charge of an animal shelter. I believe there is a certain type of person who is needed for that kind of job, especially sensitive to the issues facing animals. I must say that in my county, Columbia County, Oregon, the one and only person who handles Animal Control is extremely pro-animal, and has gone out of his way to prosecute cases involving animal abuse. He appears to be a true animal lover, Deputy Kadell. God bless him. However, he is also prompt, but fair, to punish owners who do not rein in their dangerous pets.

  3. Shelters run by the local police department more often than not tend to be bad. If I’m wrong, please let me know and what the situation is and I’ll do a story.

  4. Yes, if there is neglect or wrongdoing there by the authorities, it’s a dire situation for animal lovers trying to expose it, but especially for the animals.

  5. Facebook is becoming a battle ground between various groups. It’s war online 😉

    I’d tend to believe animal advocates if you are searching for the truth. Therefore the city is hiding something. QED.
