The WC Animal Shelter is a Sham
My husband and I recently submitted an application to adopt a pet from the Wetzel County Animal Shelter. From beginning to end the experience was a total disaster. Personally, I have never been treated so badly in my life! After spending some time with the animal we were considering, we decided to fill out an application. Afterwards, I asked the lady behind the desk if there was anything else we needed to do. She informed me in a not-so-nice tone that all I could do is look at a dog until the application went through. We disclosed that we owned our home, had a fenced in yard and a vet on-call but I guess that isn't what they are looking for in a pet owner. To date we have not heard from anyone at the overcrowded animal shelter. I feel sorry for all the dogs that make that place their temporary home. With a nasty staff that hand picks their new families instead of evaluating the applications properly, they don't stand a chance!!!
