Great..all the other "no kill" humane societies and shelter, when they full or can't get rid of a pet, send them there. Andy does the best job in finding a home for almost every pet that is adoptable. Great place to look for a pet. Maybe that's where you should look for your next pet. I know I did. Thanks again Andy for the well job done..

I'd like to respond to the previous post about not knowing it was a high kill faciltiy. Almost all of the Animal Control facilities are just that. They pick up strays, take in unwanted pets, hold them for a certain period of time and if no one claims them they are put up for adoption, but only held a few days. No one should ever consider releasing their pet to an Animal Control facility. They do not keep them long enough is right, but they are not a Humane Society.
Not all shelters are No-Kill, either. You have the responsibility to do your homework. Many no-kill shelters have a waiting period or require an appointment to bring in a pet. I adopted my Golden Retriever from Joliet Animal Control in 1997. She's 13 now. I also know that many Animal Control facilities network to shelters and rescue groups to take the animals before they are put down. In the ideal world, no one has to give up a pet for allergies or kids, or moving, or no time for it or what have you. And all animals that were relinquished were place in good loving homes. Believe me, my golden is one of the lucky ones.

Kim, you are a moron! Maybe you should do some research before you decide to just hand over your pet. JTAC is NOT a no-kill shelter. If you were not certain about your pet being adopted out (which no one can be, it's impossible), then you should have taken him/her to a place that IS no-kill. Like, the Humane Society! Or, have a friend foster your pet until you're sure your kids are/aren't allergic. Or here's another idea, get your kids checked out while you still have the pet. Or BEST OF ALL... maybe you should have had your kids checked out BEFORE you got the dog!!! I just don't understand why people decide to go get a pet on a whim and find out things like this and then have to get rid of your pet because you didn't take the proper precautions. It's YOUR FAULT the dog got put down. YOU handed over your pet because of a mistake YOU made. JTAC was doing their job. While yes, it is a very sad thing and I am sorry the dog got put down, it's a fact of life. If you didn't want this to be a possible outcome for your dog, you should have waited to turn him/her over to them, or done one of the other options I suggested. IDIOT!

One more thing to add... I almost guarantee that your dog didn't get put to sleep. The guy who runs it, Andy, is very good at his job. He knows that puppies get adopted out faster than any other dogs, and there is no way that he put a puppy to sleep unless there was some sort of issue (the dog was aggressive, bit someone, or had some other problem). He bends the rules at times (as for how long a dog is allowed to remain there), and would have allowed a puppy a chance to be adopted out. And oh, by the way, you're still an idiot.

My 11 month old puppy was brought in there because we thought my children were allergic to him after finding out they weren't I called the shelter to try and get him back I was told he was adopted to a good home..I found out today he was put down... after calling several times to get him back a lady by the name of Bonnie kept telling me he was adopted when indeed they killed him! He could have been brought back home but because of her lack of intelligence and lack of responsibility to her job duties our puppy was not given a chance...I would NOT recomend releasing any animals to these animal killers! They hurt a innocent puppy due to incompetence! "ANIMAL KILLERS"

PROS: NONE!
CONS: PUPPY KILLERS!

The on call team was very quick to respond when I found a racoon trapped in a draining system. I do find it unfortunate that Animal Control is a kill shelter and that sometimes the animals they take in aren't given enough of a chance at being adopted.
