I'm very disappointed after seeing a dog on the Carroll County Humane Society list of available dogs up for adoption. Well, the dog I was very interested in adopting had just been put up on their site that very day I called. I went to see

Took my elderly father there to get an older dog when he lost his. They would not let us take the 8 year old German Shepherd outside....could not tell us if he had been neutered and knew nothing about any shots. When I asked if these

My boyfriend and I were looking to adopt a dog this new year and came across Carroll County Humane Society and decided to take a look at what animals they had up for adoption.

Stepping foot in this shelter was the WORST decision we ever

The persons in charge at animal control don't want to answer complaints and do their jobs. Nikki, very rude and angry all the time. Brian, sounds like he wants to help then reads the laws to you to make you seem stupid and him educated. Neither works. They kill when they say they don't and they lie right to your face. Carroll Co. Directors take note, your employees are making you look real bad!

This place is not good at all. The staff are VERY uneducated and make you feel bad for adopting certain breeds. Nobody I know has had a good experience at this place. It's dirty with no beds for the animals - it smells terrible - and the staff are super lazy and as stated, uneducated.

It's a shame that people still take animals to a place like this, when there are plenty of GOOD shelters and rescues around. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend setting foot in the place.

It's also important to note that this place is a KILL SHELTER - meaning that they don't save all animals they receive. I know someone who took an animal here only to find out after checking back on the animal that they killed it!

The staff is bad, the facility is bad and not worth your time.

This is what my sister wrote for me. I am so upset at the moment that I can harldy function.

They violated the very laws they have posted on their web site to kill my poor babies.

I spoke to a police officer he suggests I sue them as they clearly broke the law.

I wish I could give them less than one star, they don't deserve the one star I have to give.

From my sister:

I am writing in regards to the Humane Society's mission and that of the Carroll County Humane Society in Westminster, MD. I don't understand how a organization that claims to support animals can disregard the life of animals and indiscriminately put healthy animals to death without even trying to place them up for adoption or for fostering.

This past weekend while my sister was on vacation with me, her husband without her knowledge loaded up their pet cats and kittens and took them to the Humane Society in Westminster. Without any proof of ownership the shelter in Westminster accepted the adult cats and kittens. My sister did not find out until late on Saturday over the Thanksgiving weekend what her husband had done. She immediately called her daughter who lives in town to try and get in touch with the shelter to explain the situation and the fact they wanted they cats and kittens back. However the shelter closed at 12 on Saturday and wasn't open on Sunday. When my sister got home she again tried to contact the shelter but was told that all the animals including the kittens had been immediately euthenized. None of the animals were saved for possible adoption and yes they were sorry but there wasn't anything to do.

But there is something we can do. We can let those in our family and our friends know that this organization that claims to support animals is really just a place to take them to die or be killed. At this point we feel it is in the best interest of animals that the public and the people who donate to the local shelter know what really happens there. If we can prevent others from having a false impresson that the society is helping animals and not just killing them - then maybe we can save a few animal lives.

Sincerely in favor of the animals,

Pros: None they should rot in hell

THis facility claims to be a no end of life shelter but they recently put down a yellow lab who had some aggression issues towards other dogs. This dog was adopted by a young couple and they found the dog to be sweet, loving, and very well behaved. He did act aggressive towards other dogs when he saw them by pulling on his leash, barking, and growling but would stop and sit when commanded to do so by his owners. My 11 year old yorkie gets horribly aggressive towards other animals but has never attacked any of them .

The young couple took the dog back to the Hunane Society for advise on how to cope with the fact that they lived in a townhouse in a community surrounded by dogs and they were wondering if Sampson might do better in a home with more yard to run and less run in with other dogs. The Humane Society took Sampson from this couple with the false impression that they would be attemting to find him a "better" home . Four hours later this young couple decided they made a mistake and wanted their dog back but when they contacted the Humane Society in Westminster they were informed that the dog was "their property" and that they had made the decision to "put him down" due to him not being "adoptable" HOWEVER he was wanted by these two people who NEVER would have taken him to this horrid place had they know that there EVER would have been the possibility of him being put down. They refused to return the dog to this couple and only 4 short hours later they found out that the dog had been put down by this facility. No attempt was made to reconcile this family, no attempt was made to see if the aggression was such that warranted this decision, and at no time was the owners consulted at all about their findings regarding Sampson. He was just put down out of convenience of the center. They already got their money for him so why keep him???? Their comments were "we do not have to justify our decisions to anyone" and that "he was their property" to do with what they saw fit. HOW is it FIT to put down a dog who has two people who wanted to take him back to their home and give him another chance at LIFE.

DO NOT BELIEVE this facility and their lies about their commitment to the animals under their care. THEY ARE A shelter that will put down animals as they "see fit".

Unfortunately we had to learn the hard way that they do this and in doing so lost a dear, sweet lovable and well behaved/gentle yellow lab by the name of Sampson to the cold hearted people who run the Carroll County Humane Society on Littlestown Pike in Westminster, MD

PLEASE BOYCOTT THIS FACIILITY AND DO NOT MAKE MONETARY DONATIONS TO A NO PUT TO SLEEP SHELTER THAT DOES INDEED END THE LIVES OF ANIMALS!!!!!!!
