Abernant vertrinary services, unlike most shelters in our area do not follow the no kill policy with their animals.I was horrified when i went to adopt a healthy two year old dog from them, and i was told that i had one hour to return and if i didnt make it back he would be killed. When i was at the shelter 4 out of the 6 dogs that day were to be put down. 3 were under the age of of 2 one was 6, and one was just a puppy.WHILE AT THE SHELTER THESE DOGS ARE GIVEN 5 DAYS TO LIVE, WHICH IS PAID FOR FROM THE TOWN. SOMETIMES THE DOGS ARE GIVEN A TWO OR THREE DAY GRACE PERIOD AFTER THAT, BUT QUITE OFTEN THESE DOGS ARE KILLED AFTER ONLY 5 DAYS. If someone lost their dog and lived out of the area, or couldnt get their in 5 days, their dog would be killed. ABERNANT SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO ACCEPT DOGS FROM OUR AREA THEY SHOULD GO TO THE BARRIE SPCA WHICH HAS A NO KILL POLICY, OR SIGN THE PETITION BELOW WHICH WILL STOP THESE DOGS FROM BEING KILLED, AND POSSIBLY HELP A SHELTER BE BUILT IN COLLINGWOOD!
