Let's put the Goathouse into perspective:
The indy article compared the Goathouse to a non-existent ultimate-ideal unlimited funded animal shelter/rescue operation and said they failed. But the reality is that these cats were pulled from a poorly funded North Carolina animal shelter ready to be gassed. And probably not because they were not adoptable but because the government funded animal shelters are way too overwhelmed to deal with them. Can the Goathouse improve their operation? Sure, we can all do better with more money, more volunteers and better organization. Is it a whole lot better than where these cats were before? - you bet it is! The Indy could have done more good exploring the current legislation surrounding NC ran animal shelters and the lack of puppy mill laws in this state.
I have volunteered a lot during the past few months and I can say that a whole lot of this article is simply not accurate. It is obvious that no serious research was done by the reporter. Shame on you Indy for reporting wrong info and not being fair or balance in your reporting. Your reputation for reporting the truth was seriously blemished before this article and now is so stained I doubt I will ever read you again.
