The conditions of the pound look fit for purpose to me, A holding unit for a stray, abandoned or lost dog whilst awaiting collection by the owner or rehoming. They are not designed to be a permanent home and IMHO any animal left here for a length of time should be put to sleep and put of its misery.

In reality this is the best that the council can offer with its current finances, how about we get rid of it completely and have no holding unit at all, and any animal brought into the pound is instantly euthanised.

Im an ex-zoo keeper and big animal lover but also a realist, this is not a place for the dogs to live, its a short term holding unit!

So the only thing I could see wrong here, would be how long animals are kept in these units before euthanasia, and this is a management issue rather than a conditions issue.

Fully agree with Lee, its just like a human who splits with the missus and sleeps in his car for a night or two or on a mate couch etc till things are sorted out one way or another, neither conditions would be ideal on a permenant basis, but they suffice for the time being.

If people were that interested, including all these Yanks etc signing the petition who dont pay a penny in UK tax or are on the recieving end of constant cutbacks in council services, then they could donate a few rugs, bedding etc for only a few quid.

Some of the proposals do unfortunately cost a great amount of money (windows are not cheap, well the labour at least) - im sure the people who work at the unit do the best they can with what little resources they are given, and the conditions look and sound more than adequate for the purpose they are required.

In an ideal world the conditions would be lovely and comfy and light and warm, but then in an ideal world we would not have the problem in the first place... as it is we do not live in an ideal world and right now im sure the council have for more worries than installing some windows in a dog pound and have zero extra money to allocate to it - otherwise, contrary to how people like to see councillors, im pretty sure they all have emotions and feelings and are decent natured people and would want to make the pound as good as possible to ensure the dogs happiness and would divert spare cash to it to make it better.

Maybe we could look at getting some local companies and pet stores to donate things, its worth a try at least.

People shouldn't be branded Liars just because the hold a different opinion.

Matty and Myself have been present on these forums since 2004 and the more established members and those who matter to me know my History and about my personal life, both of which you know nowhere near enough to call me a liar. Maybe when you have more than 2 posts your opinions and views may hold some more value with me (maybe).

I only mentioned my zoo background because its because of it I have an understanding of how things are suppose to work, but its not always run the way its suppose to. Whilst at college, part of my qualification required me to volunteer at North Clwyd Animal Rescue near Holywell, the holding units here were very similar to the dog pound and were deemed acceptable enough by the powers that be.

Excuse me GSD Brigade's latest member, who the hell are you to question anyones personal motives or lifetime experiences, without any background information or having met that person? Waddi is extremely well known for his fondness of animal's within these forums and has been since the day I joined.

If you care so much, put you money where your mouth is and donate instead of taking a backseat, and expecting someone else to do the hard work and foot the bill; ive probably had more animals than you have had hot dinners (Parrot, tropical fish, coldwater fish bearded dragons, dogs, cats, African land snails, the list goes on... Mark, the forum admin, and many other forum members, can confirm all the animals ive had over the years - in fact, today I rescued two goldfish that had been abandoned by a family member (shame on them) - they may only be goldfish to most people, but to me they are every bit as special and precious as my cat for example) so for you to question the fact whether im an animal lover or not, is a pretty pathetic and useless comment and is based on nothing but your own narrow-mindedness.

No doubt you will be from the GSD-spam brigade that Tilly seems to have bought over from "that" site (hmmm, is that an unfounded assumption I have made there, merely co-incindence I feel), so jog on and whilst your on your way, visit www.barryboys.co.uk where you are sure to find plenty of like-minded internet warriors ready to spout shit without knowing any facts whilst your hiding behind your internet connection.

If you can't accept somebody having a different opinion to that of yourself, then you may also want to check out one of the many UK neo-Nazi parties as im sure they share the same conformist views.
