I understand that the Humane Society of El Paso gets a great part of it's funds from big companies such as Petsmart. But was heartbroken to learn that a dog in cage BARN4, with ID#A38905491 has been there since June 20, with a broken leg, like in 3 parts, and up until yesterday, had not gotten medical attention. I just can't understand why 2 or more dogs must be in the same cage, regardless of whether they get along or not, and rip each other to pieces. Or in the best of cases, sleep in their own feces. And I also can't understand why anything that is wildlife, such as squirrels, skunks, etc. brought in is, without second thought, euthanized. Period. No regard for their lives. It seems that the Humane Society in order to get funding, needs to have sufficient animals. And I can see there is good intention here, in that, the Humane Society of El Paso is trying to make it a no kill shelter. But when one life is spared and the other isn't, then it is a kill shelter. And when in order to keep the funding, you neglect an animal that needs medical attention, the only word I can think of is cruelty. I respectfully appeal to Mr Westerman, asking that these policies and how the funding is allotted be re-assessed and managed, so that it in fact becomes a no kill shelter, where animals will be given proper medical assistance, and a humane space. I know it can be easier said than done, but the purpose is defeated as it stands right now.
