Duh! What Does It Take??

Denham Springs, LA voted to keep their shelter "no kill" despite warnings from nine vets.

The vets who signed the letter wrote there are certain ethical lines being crossed by the shelter.

An email from Peta:

The email names eight dogs with health and behavioral problems. For example, the investigators say one dog spins in his pen from constant confinement and lack of socialization.

And from shelter workers:

Former shelter workers say some of the dogs that have been at the shelter since 2006 and 2007 may never be adopted, making space an issue. "We've just got so many animals I believe that it's too much."

And there are complaints of animals not being picked up by animal control. The budget has doubled. Does this ring any bells of other places we know about?
