Angry RIP Boost

"A lost Boxer wearing a collar was found Tuesday by a couple of good Samaritans who brought the dog to the shelter in Walker Co, AL at 4:00. The relieved owner was waiting to redeem the dog the next morning prior to the shelter's opening. But shelter staff had "evaluated" the dog and killed him by 4:30 the previous day."

And that same evening:

This makes me sick. And I want to let everyone know who already does not. Something like this cannot happen again. I'm sure it has happened before, but there is VIDEO. Please repost anywhere you can. This man is a lazy sicko who doesnt give a crap about animals.

He was wearing a collar and they put him down? That is so messed up. Poor puppy.

They "evaluated" a dog that had a collar without even waiting a day or two?? That makes me angry.

That is just stupid.
How many dogs like that breed - Boxers, Rotties, Pit Bulls - get put down just because of breed fears.
Any brand of idiot could tell that the dog had a home and they should have at least attempted to find it.
I sure hope they get in **** for this.

I agree with the blog writer. They killed him because they did not want to deal with paperwork when it was so close to closing time. Then they had to come up with a story about why they killed the poor guy.
But its obvious in the videos he is not vicious. Ugh.

I have a pit bull and a rottie and people are scared of them bc of their breeds. This is rediculous. People need to do their jobs and not kill innocent animals bc of their breed

It wasnt because of his breed. It was because they brought him in too close to closing and the director wanted to go home.
