Yeah, me too.

I only have one dog. I got him from animal control in Nashville 10 years ago. Best dog I've ever had.

I think Portland is in Sumner county, north of Nashville, and Cumberland is east of Nashville. Seems there's a different county in the news all the time about serious abuse issues. It's a big problem in this part of TN.

She's Cheatham County. Had to go look! LOL

Yep. Pretty crappy when your shelters and HSs that are supposed to be helping animals are the ones doing so much damage to them. Can't get out of this state fast enough!

Small world!

Did you see the dogs they just got in? Horrible hoarding / puppy mill situation. Some of the females are pretty pregnant. They are matted so badly you can't even see feet on some of them. A group of people went out and spent hours today getting them shaved down and groomed, checked by the vet, etc. I can't even begin to imagine where you'd start with some of the dogs. The photos are heartbreaking. Just one more story of the horrors that go on in this state.

Yeah, I saw the pics. Awful!

I'm glad the Cheatham Animal Awareness Foundation took over the shelter. I remember when they were first talking about adopting animals out of the shelter instead of euthanizing. There was an outcry in the local paper from people who thought no money should be spent on the animals and that they should be euthanized instead of adopted out, because putting money into the shelter would "take away money for the children!" It's always the "What about the children?!!" thing around here. Same thing when there was talk about putting fire sprinklers in the shelter.

Amazing isn't it?? Everything here is supposed to go to humans. Our shelter director, and I use that term very loosely, has publicly stated it's his job to kill animals people don't want. Wow. Nice. Make sure you don't put any concern, care, humanity or effort into sparing their lives. Just kill them as they walk through the door. And they do. We found tons of accounts in their own records where a stray was brought in, immediately euthanized and then records in the euth log changed saying it's an owner surrender. Even if it's an OS by law they're supposed to wait three days before euth'ing in case someone wants to adopt it. Just makes me sick. What if that was someone's pet that got loose? I keep telling the HS they need to release the info on all 258 dogs that were illegally killed in the hopes that someone who's dog was missing may have been on that list. Let them file a lawsuit and sue the hell out of the county and see how quickly they change their attitude.

Regarding your house-hunt, in addition to what the above have mentioned, you may want to take a look at Signal Mountain for a house with land. Chattanooga is such a gem. Best of luck in your search!
