It's Sad When Shelters Gets Too Over Whelmed

A Shelter called Pitstop Puppy’s Inc in Wheatfield, NY has become another failed animal shelter that started off as trying to do the right thing for the animals. Well trying to run her shelter that got out of hand Joelle R. Kott who owns the Pitstop Puppy’s Inc has now been arrested for animal cruelty charges.

The Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies said: Joelle R. Kott home was in deplorable conditions where 24 dogs were found.

Brandy Scrufari the Niagara County SPCA Board President said: there was no heat in the shelter, where the temperature inside was documented at 30 degrees. In addition, he said no food or water appeared to be available for the animals at either the home or at the business.

Yes this is sad to read when we know that Joelle R. Kott most likely started out with a big heart to help try and save these dogs, but know it has come to the point the she is now being charge with animal cruelty. I can only ask why didn't she ask for help and not try and hide the fact that these dogs were in harms way.

She was too overwhelmed to feed, water, and provide the basic necessities of these poor dogs' lives??? Your comments are so disgusting to anyone who has any common sense and cares about Man's Best Friend. She ignored them...only 24 dogs. I am not SAD, I am mad as hell and want her to pay the price by spending time in jail and it still won't be enough to pay for what she DID and DIDN'T DO!

Lorry, I didn't say that I was sorry for this women, I said that I'm sorry for the dogs. As I said: why didn't she ask for help before things go so bad.
I personally would like to see all those who abuse dogs go to jail and not get a little slap on their hand.

PS- You said 24 dogs! Over 60 were seized, but still no excuse for basic, humane care and actively abusing.

Your article is somewhat unclear about your point. Thanks for feeling sorry for the dogs, but it really doesn't stress her being completely apathetic and cruel. I wish it had.

Sorry I didn't word it that way, but if you read most of my posts you will see how I feel about people that abuse dogs.

Its really sad that someone started to do the right thing now ended up in jail. She could have asked for help, why did she ignore it (I know I'm late to comment...)? Hope those dogs are safe now.
