Ahh yes, Nelson, he is one of my favorite workers there. Very friendly guy, you can tell he is looking out for the interest of the dogs. There is another guy there, can't remember his name for the life of me, that is awesome, he goes out of his way for the dogs.
I am part of a group, you might even be interested in joining, called United for Animal Justice (website:http://www.loraincounty.com/ufaj/index.htm). The group is all about changing the going's on at the pound (kennell). Look at the site and let me know if you are interested.

Hello Every one, some answers for Brattina88

Watch the Commissioners' meeting on Saturday at noon and Monday night at 11 PM. Beginning with this weeks meeting the Commissioners and department heads will be taking turns each week introducing adoptable dogs from the kennel. The dogs will be kept several extra weeks if needed to get them adopted. The meetings are shown on the LCCC channel on every cable company in the county. Check for the proper channel for your system

The funding problems in Elyria have nothing to do with the County Kennel. The kennel is independently funded and separate from the city. It is also not a general fund department in the County so downturns in the County also have little effect on the operation. The "kennel" name was used of and on for some time. One of the things that the United Justice people can take credited for is requesting to use it permanently.

I look listen and learn that's how I get my information. I also know some strange people...... :-)

The County site now list all dogs in the kennel not just the adoptable ones. This way an owner can check after hours and try and find their lost pets and people can view potential adoptable dogs earlier this should help with adoptions and customer service.

Links to other dog help sites are being developed and a new e-mail alert signup should be available soon so people can get on an "alert" message when new animals are available for adoption or need rescue etc. The details still have to be worked out.

I am certain that the volunteer issue will be sorted our in the next few months and expansion plans are in the discussion phase to get rid of those stupid stacked cages and replace them with the same style as the larger ones. There will be a fenced outside area for potential owners to bond with the dogs they are considering adopting (whether permitting of course...... LOL) and a new room so visiting vets can provide some medical care when needed. Remember there are funds now available to do this.

More to come........................................ The future so bright we need sunglasses to see...

Pitt bulls....The meetings are every Thursday at 9:30 am on the 4th floor of the County Administration Building in the Public Hearing room.

The pit bull issue is very touchy with most residents. While you will get significant support for other issues from dog lovers, they themselves are deeply divided on the matter. The procedure in the County SOP is not to allow these dogs to be adopted.

Remember the kennel is technically a "safety forces" operation. Deputy dog wardens have very similar authority to that of a deputy sheriff. It was deemed long ago that the community was better served by not allowing these dogs to be reintroduced into the general population.

And that is what I would personally like to see change. At least if they could be adopted out to rescues vs. just being adopted out to the general population. It is wrong to discriminate against the breed as such and not give them a chance, punish the deed not the breed.

Well...I think you have to have your pictures URL from a phot website. Like I use Photobucket.com. Then either start a new thread or post a reply and go into your message box and hit the little image box above. (looks like a mountain and a sun) then I enter the URL in the box where it asks for it. (You can find your photos URL by right clicking on it and hitting properties.) copy the URl in the box hit enter and it should come up.

If this doesn't make sense or if you think there's a better way, I'm sure you can search the forum for better instructions.

Hope to see your babies soon!

Here's a pic of my Teddi. I got her 12 years ago from the Lorain Co. APL. She's my big sweetheart.

Look what we found yesterday!


I saw them last night and when I went to get the paper today the black one was just laying in teh road down the street. He is kinda on the skinny side and she is rather chunky and nipply so I'm kinda worried about that. The boy isn't fixed eitheir. THey are kind of short for labs but otherwise look it to me. SOemone said it may just be their line though and the fact that someone is just mass breeding them in their backyard. No collars and i don't know whos they could be seeing as how I know the whole town. They have just been sitting on my porch now for hours and no ones looking for them. I wonder if he was int he road all night. So anyway, I don't want to take them to the pound and i don't think my cousin is taking em both so are you guys up for some cute labs? They like to play fetch I'm still hoping there people will show up but the way they were acting at the church(where they were sitting) I think someone dumped them.

Aw, they're cute. Labs aren't supposed to be big--55-70 lbs..

Wow!! Look at that tongue!!!!!! They are so adorable. I can't believe someone would just dump them. Well....Yes I guess I would! People are idiots. If you want, I can email my friend who does a lot of cross posts with some rescue people. you can email me at [email protected] and give me your email and/or phone number and see if someone contacts you. I just don't have the room. 3 dogs, a cat and 2 kids.

Hopefully they will either be reunited with their family or find a new loving home soon.
