If you can’t read the text above, here you go:
At Seven this morning, I stepped outside of my apartment to find a frail, malnourished, scared to death, puppy frantically searching for food inside of my recycling bin. I woke up all of my neighbors immediately and called animal metro Louisville and heard a recording which informed me that they would be open at seven thirty. After many attempts to get a live person, my call was finally answered at seven fifty. I explained the condition of the dog and that my fear was that the dog was near death and needed immediate care. Animal Metro told me they had put the call in and they would be here shortly. It is now past two thirty pm. We bought the pup dog food, and are keeping him hydrated. Will he be rescued? I wonder just what Animal Rescue Louisville is doing right now? Having Lunch?
We attempted making a lift for him to assist him to clinic or something but he cried, growled and was slowly becoming aggressive. Leaving him be, we called several more times over the hours and the woman on the other end of the phone was impatient with me, treating me as if I had done something wrong, isn’t this your job I thought? I wanted to SCREAM! We are sitting here doing everything we can to help this pup and you are pretty much telling me, this is an inconvience to you and the metro Louisville animal services. How ashamed would you feel if Curtis died on my porch? Knowing that there was something more you could’ve done? It is now 2:50pm and the puppy (Curtis we named him) is still sitting on our porch watiting for someone with the tools and resources to restore him back to his maximum health. More have gathered around scared to move Curtis and his frail body waiting for the help to come that is supposedly on the way. He is slowly dying with hope that he will get help, but in our eyes Louisville Animal Metro may never come. Why has no one been here? If we were to call 911 in need of a hospital bed/care we would’ve already been seen and probably stable. Does an animal is the eyes of Louisville Metro have a lesser value and urgency because they are “just animals”? Shame on you guys, if it weren’t for great courageous citizens of the Clifton area “Curtis” would be dead.
This sort of thing continually happens and Greg Fischer, with the assistance of his spokesperson (Hi, Chris! You’re just as guilty!), continue to blow smoke up this city’s collective ass.
People like our friend, Don Vish, Mr. Compassion, should be ashamed that this sort of thing continues to happen under the leadership of Greg Fischer. All of the people who sing Greg’s praises and sweep serious matters like this under the Metro rug. The Browns, the Blues, Craig Greenberg, even John Yarmuth. They sit on their hands, bite their tongues, throw campaign cash at him. They get upset when you try to have polite discussions with them. But…
You’re only as good as you treat your animals, your children, the elderly and the poor.
