It floors me to read the story, "Dog at center of custody dispute," (Page A1, Jan. 30). Does the Humane Society of Central Illinois have nothing better to do with its time, resources and money than to try to recover a dog from a good home? And clog our court system with crap cases like this.My family tried to adopt a dog from them a couple of years ago. But when asked on the application where we planned to keep the dog, we responded outside. We were turned down because we offered to give the dog a good loving home in the country, but would keep it in an outdoor kennel. It sounds more like a country club for critters than an animal shelter. The Humane Society should be thankful that people are willing to give an animal a good home. Thousands of pets are euthanized every year because they can't find homes.
Perhaps they're in the wrong business. Maybe they should be finding homes for children, not pets.
