I don't think I have ever done this before, but this posting and this cause are very important to me.
I need your help and information.
I have received several calls over the past couple weeks regarding Animal Control in the City of Hartford and the killing of impounded dogs. The callers have claimed that captured dogs are not being properly advertised as required by Connecticut Law before they are killed.
Imagine your pet being impounded by the City of Hartford and killed before you could even get a return call to check on them or find out if they had been found
And I don't want to make this an indictment of Hartford's Animal Control Officer, I understand he is overworked as the only active ACO in Hartford since the Bronin budget cuts forced the lay off of two other ACO's last year and one more is out on some sort of sick leave.
If you have had difficulty in contacting ACO's in Hartford or in trying to recover or adopt a dog or if you have information on dogs being killed while in the Hartford pound, please contact me either by e-mail or phone or if you wish, comments can be left on this posting also.
We need to be the voices for our beloved pets
