Peaceable Kingdom? This peaceable kingdom is a socialist kingdom more suited to a police state. The volunteers may be animal friendly but most certainly are not people friendly. The atmosphere is an un-caring fierce one controlled by the volunteers to put humans leaving an animal or wishing to adopt an animal 'in their place' and treat people as an un-welcome interruption in their 'busy' day. I recently found an animal in a wooded area, left it in one of my pet carriers under their awning as the web site states they open at 11:00 and it was only 10:40; I had to get to my real work-a-day job. I thought I was doing the right thing rather than leaving it in the woods! Did I learn my lesson. This snotty little teen comes out threatening me that she will call the police as I am abandoning an animal. I explained that it was not my animal; I was leaving it at a shelter, not abandoning it, and she angrily threatened me again with 'abandonment' as if it were my pet, telling me that if I'm holding it, it's mine and that I have to fill out the 'proper' documentation. I went inside and left my license for her to copy feeling like I was the bad person. Then I remembered that three years ago I'd visited there with my grand-daughters to view their cats and dogs in filthy enclosures with an eye towards adoption, and was treated the same way, being told that wanting a pet was no guarantee that I would 'qualify' for one. I was told to come back when they were not so busy (I was one of only three people searching at the time) and a young man told me to not get my hopes up. I wound up purchasing an animal from a pet shop instead where I was treated with respect and courtesy, as someone who wanted to give a pet a home, the opposite of how I was treated by these unruly overbearing pet politicians who seem to view humans as evil interruptions of their heroic efforts to house pets 'their way'.
