Just days before Easter on March 18, SC Senator Kent M. Williams called animal control and had his very pregnant German Shepherd picked up and taken to the shelter to be killed.
This is the kind of person we elect to lead?? A person who takes no responsibility as a pet owner, cared so little that he couldn’t be bothered to have this sweet girl spayed, then when she got pregnant, he callously and coldly just dumped her! What an atrocity!!




On Easter Sunday this beautiful girl had a litter of eight puppies at the Marion County Animal Shelter. Luckily she and her puppies were pulled from the shelter and placed in a foster home. They were not killed and now all will have a chance at a much better life.

I am forwarding a request to write to the Senator and to local papers to vent your outrage over this despicable incident!

Following is the Senator’s contact information, contact information for local media and a sample letter that you can use. Please, get the word out and let people know. Flood Williams’ office and the media with letters, calls and emails!

The Senator’s contact information:

I am not real political, but the reason I don't like Hillary is that as soon as they left the whitehouse last time, they gave away the cat and the dog. Obviously, these animals were just photo ops. That made me wonder about their character.

Huh, I had never heard that before. Does not surprise me though.

Senetor Clinton and her husband have dogs in their home in chappaqua, ny. My DF used to work for Invisable Fence Co, and put in a system for their dogs at home. It was actually quite amusing he said, showing the "secrurity guys" how to train the dogs on the system once he's left.

BTW, i sent him an email, letting him know i think he is a disgrace to the community and as a leader he should be setting a good example for society.

OK so, i got a very quick reply from the senetors office:


"The following statement has been released to the media.


"Growing up on the family farm, I developed a love and respect for animals at
a very young age that has stayed with me throughout my life. As a result I
have adopted four dogs during my life, all of whom have been attended to and
provided for with the utmost care. My German Shepherd was given to the
local shelter for her own safety, with the knowledge that I would reclaim her if
no one else did. Any suggestion to the contrary is a complete and utter
falsehood."

Ok senetor, but here the saying goes "When you adopt a pet, you adpot for LIFE"

I wonder why her safety was a concern?

Yeah, right. How stupid does he think, people are?
From what or whom needed the dog to be safe from?

"Growing up on the family farm, I developed a love and respect for animals at a very young age that has stayed with me throughout my life".

I grew up in a city, with very few animals and have more passion & respect for animals than this idiot.

This guy should be shut away - only for his own safety, of course.

Go look under Urgent. Poor Momma in SC has been on this forum for a time - same dog. I put this information on that thread a couple of days ago about this guy dumping his dog.

Wow! I wondered if any of the rescue's here were the ones helping this girl. Awesome!!

I hope lots of different places will write about this, so everytime someone googles his name, the dog story will come up too.

wow!!! I just called the first number....got message saying they were closed but for a directory please push....I did...put in Williams for this last name, the phone rang. I asked if that was Sen. Williams-he said it was!!! I then told him what I thought of his dumping of his preg dog at a high kill shelter and how this is no way for our elected officials to ask. He said no one was listening to his side of the story and he was ending the conversation right now....and hu.... jerk!!!
I'd love to send this on to the Media

Sorry, but growing up on a farm, you learn that animals are a cash crop and food source, not something into which you invest your emotions. It's a very simple economic equation, you don't spend more on your animals than their market value.

local shelter for her own safety, with the knowledge that I would reclaim her if

How on earth is a pregnant dog more safe in a filthy, disease-ridden dog pound than at his home? For Pete's sake, if there's a "safety" issue, address that, but don't dump the dog in the pound.

What a complete idiot!!

I hope this makes the news for his constituents to see, or at least that it becomes a campaign issue when he runs for re-election.
