City to Rescue Group: Kill 'Em All

 Things aren't looking too good for canines at the Jackson dog pound.  Jackson Friends of the Animal Shelter posted on Facebook: 

Operation Delta Dog is a nonprofit organization in New Hampshire with a mission to rescue shelter dogs and train them to work as service dogs for disabled veterans. This summer we contacted them about "our" Huey (who was a resident of the City of Jackson Animal Shelter / Animal Control) because we thought that he might be a good fit for their program based on our previous experience with them. They agreed and, after working through all of the travel logistics, off Huey went to New Hampshire. Now this previous "throw away shelter dog" is changing the life of a disabled veteran. We just couldn't be more proud of Huey!
The value that Operation Delta Dog sees in shelter animals is in sharp contrast to the opinion recently espoused by a Jackson city representative in our email exchange with them concerning the city shelter animals. The city imposed a two week deadline for our group to find a place for all of the adoption dogs to go so that the city could temporarily close the city shelter for long overdue and much needed repairs. We explained that if the dogs had to be transported to other rescues out of state that the city would need to cover the $120 fee per animal for the required travel health certificates. The city representative replied in an email that "I have spoken with members in my chain of command and they have stated that we will not be paying the $120 per dog / cat request, simply because these are strays that were picked up off the street or abandoned by their owners. It is not fiscally smart to invest city funds in these animals that will likely be euthanized if not being adopted..."
Our response was "we (Jackson Friends of the Animal Shelter) want to express our complete and utter dismay and disappointment by your response as represented in the city's attitude towards the animals in their care at the city shelter."
We will provide additional information on the situation at the city shelter in the coming days.

Kingfish note:  None other than Paul Perry is back in charge of the Jackson Animal Shelter.

For anyone who's not familiar with the sorry, despicable history of Paul Perry in running the city's animal control, check this link.

Karma will show up at sometime for these heartless city nimrods.

Would make more sense for the city to take that attitude with the aged and infirm animals at the Jackson zoo, where instead they continue to pour millions in the facility thinking that it has 'tourism' value.

fed up in Jackson said...

Our city shows no value for human life as evidenced by the record number of murders and violent crime, so I’m. It sure why they would have any concern for dogs and cats……maybe our mayor, re-elected by a mere 13,000 votes, can provide what a holistic approach would look like for these shelter animals…….RIGHT???

Jacksonians are dying everyday due to street violence and you spend effort worrying about animals? Don’t care, euthanize everyone of them. Caring for them is a complete waste of city resources.

Whatever you say, savage

@6:44 are you saying euthanize the animals? Or the Jacksonians?

How can we volunteer to pay for some?

Hate to be so callous but… the dogs and euthanize the city council

@ 6:44

I agree with you, except the animals I would euthanize in Jackson would not be four-legged furry critters

They would be the two-legged criminal, carjacking, drive-by shooting, murderous variant that is nothing but a plague on society.

Maybe the Mayor should request Federal funds to study the matter with a group of cronies, I mean, consultants.

Why not use this technique on those in Hinds county who are delinquent for several years on their water bills?

Paul "couple of beers while I was shootin' some dogs" Perry blowing a 0.19 after being "carjacked."

This should go national news. Mississippi is a lost due to imbeciles like this may as well get the ones who can help involved before these helpless animals are killed by the city. @6:44 We made these animals dependent on humans, how humans treat each other and animals says a lot about the state of their society. You offer no solutions, you are part of the problem.

If only people got this worked up about the humans being killed every day in Jackson.

This is a non-issue. Anyone, anyone, feeling so strongly about this problem can go adopt as many stray dogs and cats as they can handle and/or pay for their transport. There are thousands of strays in Jackson so opportunities abound for those who want to help without spending taxpayers money.
Otherwise shut the f... up!

Mary the Mayor took over the private shelter in Madison. We the taxpayers now pay $600,000 per year to keep & feed stray dogs that are shipped to New England.

The shelter has been bad for 25 years .

Feed the strays to the hungry Zoo animals.

3rd World Cities need 3rd world Solutions

Perry doesn't want to spend that $120 per animal because he needs those funds to decorate his office and buy a new city car for himself; probably a Lexus SUV.

That shelter out by the zoo is the worst smelling place I've ever been in. I have no idea how the guy running it stays in there. I'm not one that smells really bother but I had to walk outside after less than a minute. It literally buckled my knees. If I were a dog or cat, I think I would want to be euthanized rather than stay in there.

Feral tacos, Caracas style, OK for cats and pit bulls?

Seriously, Jackson must make hard choices in desperate times.
Pipes or pups
Streets or strays
Water collections or wild curs.

Hopefully a cheap, humane solution exists.

Three years ago, got one of my two rescues from “Friends” managing the adoption program at Jackson pound. It’s a shame this is happening. The “City” doesn’t truly care about quality of life (or death) for their people, much less their animals.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
