Haslett: The Frank Barchard Memorial Animal Shelter in Wolfe City is the only no-kill animal shelter in Hunt County. The future of that operation is in doubt. On Wednesday, all animals in the care of the shelter were seized in a cooperative effort involving Hunt County law enforcement and the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Texas.
Davies: There were 222 animals seized, and that’s 166 dogs, 43 cats, 14 kittens and 13 puppies.
FORT WORTH - Webster’s online dictionary defines euthanasia as “the act or practice of killing or permitting the death of hopelessly sick or injured individuals (as persons or domestic animals) in a relatively painless way for reasons of mercy.”
