NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
I want to express my concern about the Lawrence County Humane Society.
I saw a photo in The News Sept. 17 about adopting Bluebell, an adult coonhound bluetick.
After I called and got information about her, I went to look at her.
When they brought Bluebell out, she looked very healthy, beautiful, energetic and playful. But when I looked at her face, her eyes were all red and drooping.
I asked about it and was told it was an eye infection or disease and there was medication I could give her, and if that didn’t help, she’d need to have eye surgery, which was going to cost a lot, about $500 on up.
I asked if a veterinarian had looked at Bluebell and was told there is not one on staff in the building.
Did they give any medication for her eyes? Oh, no, I was told. The vet has to approve the medication.
How long did the shelter have Bluebell? Oh, she came in about four months ago.
Then she asked me if I was still interested in Bluebell.
I said no. If her eyes get cleared up, they can call me.
I can’t believe that a place like that has a dog that long with an eye disease or infection and nothing is being done.
I just wondered how many animals are adopted that are sick, hurt or infected.
The staff that was there were very friendly and helpful. I know they are following orders, but I think something needs to be done higher up to get these dogs and cats treated for disease or illness so they can get adopted quicker.
