I recently adopted a dog from Lindsay Animal Shelter and was to pick up the dog on 1/25/08. I spent many hours locating the perfect dog. We were very fortunate to find the animal we wanted but was notified on 1/22/08 that our animal was put down. I understand the police department there has the power over the shelter and an officer walked in and ordered most of the dogs to be put down. The officer was notified of the adoption of these dogs and he said ""if the people wanted them, they should have picked up the dogs"".
Pros: Caring people that volunteer in the community
Cons: No control over police officials
