Update on Arkansas shelter

The horrific action by the city of Helena, Arkansas, in releasing shelter dogs into the forest to fend for themselves, has brought nationwide repercussions, as it should. The mayor of Helena has learned, the hard way, that the animal-loving community won't stand for abuse. Unfortunately he has been the recipient of many abusive emails and calls, and even death threats. This is no way to educate the ignorant or gain cooperation. I myself was guilty of insulting the mayor in my earlier blog post. 

I have posted his response on my web site if you would like to read it. I think he's gotten the message at this point, and I hope the town of Helena will rally to found a humane animal control program.
