The Montgomery County animal shelter in Conroe, Texas, closed gates on Monday, September 19, due to lack of funding. The sad news has made the rounds on the biggest social media websites, including Facebook and Twitter, causing a widespread confusion that all animals without a home were supposed to be euthanized.
Just to make thing clear, none of the the Montgomery Animal Shelter in Montgomery Township, NJ, the Montgomery Animal Shelter in Clarksville, TN, or the three animal shelters run by the SPCA in Montgomery County, PA, are being closed. More to it, animals from the animal shelter in Conroe, TX, have all been rescued by community members (already) before the shelter changed hands.
And now comes the best part. There are reports talking about a computer virus — that takes advantage of our good hearts — who’s being spread online to those looking for that exact topic on Google.
So much for doing good and helping an animal, eh? Beware!
