After reading the letter in Thursdays Citizen regarding being treated rudely at the SPCA, I felt compelled to write. I also had a similar experience with our SPCA while on the look for my four legged friend. Figuring I would try to help a dog in need, I started my search at the SPCA. Upon arrival there, the women behind the counter were less than friendly. After waiting for almost 15 minutes, I got the attention of one of the staff and polity asked if I could take a look at the dogs, as I was interested in expanding my family and adopting one. With a sigh, she gave me an application form to fill out before I would be able to view the dogs. When I finished, she verified my info and then informed me that they had no dogs that matched the description of what I wanted and to try again the next week. Even after being treated so rudely when trying to do the right thing, I decided to try again the next week. Once again, the women behind the counter were less then friendly and quickly dismissed me. Needless to say I took my service to a local pet store. I always tried to support our local shelter but absolutely refuse to now. I can understand completely how a job in this type of environment can be stressful and hard (personally I could never do it), but it doesn't give any of these women the right to treat customers rudely or with disrespect. Mostly it saddens me to think that these animals lives depends on the poor attitudes at the front counter. Perhaps this is the reason for so few adoptions.
