Animal Control Polk County FL
THIS IS AN INSTANT KILL SHELTER, DO NOT LEAVE ANIMALS HERE!
My wife and I found two stray puppies on the road and we picked up to find a home. They were sweet and friendly and we thought the would find homes quickly. After about two weeks of trying to find homes for them, we couldn't keep them anymore considering we already had 3 labs and 3 cats. So we decided to take them to the animal shelter thinking they would get more exposure through their website and people visiting the shelter. We left them there along with a donation thinking that in a few days they would be adopted. My wife kept checking on their progress for adoption, and after about 5 days, she was told that they were put down, due to the lack of interest.AFTER JUST FIVE DAYS!! and four of those days they were put on hold in the back in case the owners would recover them. My wife and I were devastated. This will be the last time I step foot or provide any kind of money to these people. These were very good dogs and would have made a family very happy. Now I know that there are other options such as the ASPCA and Humane Society of polk county that are not kill shelters. Lesson Learned I guess, but at a high price.
