Mohawk & Hudson River Humane Society Allegedly Neglects, Then Kills 300 Pets.

“We will not rest until we have ample "empty" space to save all animals in our care. “ The Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society.

Apparently the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society is resting right now because according to an e-mail I received from the Times Union’s Reader’s Network (TURN), “Staff writer Danielle Furfaro is following the story about the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society, which shut down this week after disease outbreaks caused the euthanization of more than 300 animals. Many have criticized how the shelter has been run in recent months.”

Humane Society workers, which in New York City, Pennsylvania and elsewhere, act as law enforcement officers in animal abuse and neglect cases, are quick to arrest people who neglect their animals. What I want to know is-will anyone at the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society be arrested for this fiasco?

If you are going to adopt one of these animals, I suggest you consider changing their names. Appropriate names include Smokey, Cinderella, Burns, Ashes, and Barbie Q.

  • I don't know, but as this appears to be a rhetorical question, I humbly await your answer.
