To all pet /cat lovers for the last 2 years I have visited the sandy perrone park in tampa with my children to play and also feed the cats ,I did learn that homeless people in the area claimed ownership to the cats I also learned the name of 1 of the cats Duchess.I Grew to care about this cat and excepted that fact she was not mine to take .
In the last month Duchess and the other two cats who were dropped off buy humans have come up missing .I started looking for them here is what I done
1 made 7 calls to the sandy perrone park office always getting an answering machine and leaving messages
Not 1 courtesy reply phone call from the park office how rude
2 visited the sandy perrone park and left a note tucked in the door
Again no return call or response from sandy perrone park management
3 visited the pound in brandon
no real help offered there they are mostly concerned with easly adoptable pets not ferals,angry cats or old and sickly cats/dogs
4 called the humane society talked to a person
(no real offer to help provided
5 called the humane society again and left a message for the director (waiting for a return call )no return call
6 called director parks Rick valdez still waiting for him to be helpful
(he has not returned my last 2 calls and email ) got 1 em from him I want to know the truth a definitive answer somebody in this park knows what happened (one morning at 8am I spoke to a lady sitting in a parks truck eating breakfast she was familar with the cats and them sleeping in the warmer bathrooms )if she knows then management knows
I am writing about my experience as i care about these cats ,I want to know that they were not trapped and dumped off many miles away ,Or just put down if I cant have them on my rescue I want to know that they are cared for and tell who might have them the black and white one is called duchess .
If you dont love pets dont work at a shelter you wont work as hard as the pets need you to do
I feel very frustrated as I try to respect everybody who might touch the life of a Pet,My good friend I asked he why does she not say anything bad about bad people ??she responded (I dont want anybody to hurt my cats ) I do not have a high regard for people who are in control of caring for pets when they are not pet lovers .Real pet lovers care about all pets old young healthy ,blind My problem dealing with county/city employees you run POUNDS they seem to not care enough about pets who would be considered not a good candidate for adoption , weather its a feral cat .an older dog that was loved and cared for many years enough to grow old and getting sick /blind who just lost their old aged caretaker to death (and not family members care enough to step in )this is apparant when you walk in a pound and see an older dog waiting to be loved again .
Nobody wants to talk about un adoptable pets ,that rescue groups want to save and love and care for most people have no idea how many sad endings there are for having to deal with pound employees .Who wont give the time of day to save the unadoptables that are doomed to die
The word expressed in the streets come to the pound and rescue a cute puppy nobody rescues puppies every body wants one
want to rescue a pet ? rescue one a family might not want ,it might be old ,blind,have no hair ,teeth cronic health problems ,
Remember nobody wants to die until they give up if a pet eats they want to live
Sometimes if a pet does not want to live and the problem is curable then you should force feed long enough to get them eating again by themselves
