    I am so disgusted and hurt by this! I am the individual that was called upon to take Faith & Hope when they were rescued from the river. You interviewed me at Springfield Animal Control on the day they called me. This is an absolute shame! I promised Faith & Hope that I would not stop until I knew they were safe and the others were out of harm’s way. This is not over for me and it is not over for them. I will not stop until something is done to change the way these people are dealt with!

    These agencies have failed these animals and the people in this community!
