  • With Biters And Special Needs Canines, The Newtown Pound Is Going The Extra Mile For The Dogs Nobody Wants

    It used to be that dog pounds were the end of the line for problem dogs. If initial attempts to place them in new homes failed, it was only a matter of time before they were put down

    Newtown’s latest animal welfare policy does includes provisions for euthanasia, but those provisions are so narrow and restrictive that even the most problematic dogs have a good chance to live out their natural lives,  even known biters.
