Lies to cover face

When lies are said to cover your face or backside they do come to light. Abusive? Try to take my dog from me and see how furious I would be. To some of us our pets are like family and yet you felt it ok to rip that family apart. Disgusting. As for shot or vet records get real. How many in this community do their own shots or have a farmer or hunter do them for them? But that wasn't good enough for you either. You let this dog go to someone else out of spite. Dillon could not make it to the shelter before you closed Friday but came Monday and you used that to your advantage to then try to force him to get his own dog neutered and to milk him then for adoption fees. He showed you that the dog had in fact been reported missing in Pasquotank but that did not matter to you either. Give this boy his dog back. He loves that dog. How dare you say he was an abusive home or not fit for that dog. They say a picture is worth thousand words. All you have to do is look at the pictures of this dog and owner to see in thousands of words spoken by those pictures that this dog is loved. You knowingly sold stolen property. Isn't that a criminal offense by anyone else? I hope if you are sued the pain and suffering award is the max. Shame on you for letting a personal vendetta over a young man getting upset at your taking his dog cause you to adopt the dog out to someone else just to show him you could do what you want! That is mean and those things will come back on you.

It sounds like

It sounds like Gammell is more interested in saving face and ego than in doing what's right. Gammell claims that Mr. Hostutler was "extremely abusive". Not saying Mr. Hostutler was right in doing so, but emotions can run high when dealing with one's pets. It's my understanding that Gammell can be abusive also, as some time back, my daughter and boyfriend were looking to adopt a puppy and decided not to because of Gammell's crappy and condescending attitude and talk to them. I'll gladly contribute towards any legal fees Mr. Hostutler expends to recover his pet. Just provide an address to send contributions to. Mr. O'Neal and his fellow commissioners are to be commended for their fair, rational, and compassionate thoughts and actions. In comparison, apparently compassion is not a requirement to be a member of this shelter's "animal lovers group". I hope this issue comes back on them and really "bites" them in the a**!
