Pompano Beach, FL
We adopted our Cocker Spaniel from here. They would not let us take him that day and he had just arrived the day before. Seems if you live in Broward or another county you have to wait to have the pet be spade or neutered. This took 5 days and by the time we picked him up. Well, the boy had at least 60 ticks on him, we had to take him to our vets where he almost died because he got so sick in the Shelter. The first day we saw him and his second day there; he was perfectly healthy. The staff was kind and considerate they just do not have enough funding to give the animals the proper care. I applaud the staff for trying. Please do something about the County requirements, we almost lost our new baby because of this Rule. If it is Law then this requires animal activitist to become aware this may harm an animal that has to wait for the owner to take him/her home. Too many animals in one stall and poopy on the floors. I know it is funding not the staff.
2008, 2009, 2010. We have taken two of our dogs to Imperial Point Animal Hospital. Our two Cocker Spaniels', one eventually passed away of cancer yet our Doctor was the most compassionate Vet we have ever met. He did everything possible to save her and eventually make her comfortable. This was a 8-12 month journey. Of course we did not know she would die when we began going there. How many Vets do you know that telephone clients? Even if we did not call him back for a few days, he would continue to call and ask how she was doing. He truly cares about animals and has empathy for their "Parents". We adopted our current Cocker Spaniel from the Miami Shelter and we have every confidence that he will be in good hands. Dr. G., you are our Angel--even though you are a Gator Man.
