Letter — Unconscionable owners of pets

This week I took some extra blankets to the Humane Society and as usual walked through to see “who was there.”

No matter how long I live I will never understand how people can throw away their pets. There were nine or 10 cats ( kittens were in foster care), two puppies that had been found in a box on the highway, and four adult sweet faced dogs.

One terribly frightened dog had obviously been abused by “whatever” had been her owner. The one in particular that I can’t stop thinking about is KELSEY, about a 6-year-old beagle. Her “family,” and I use the term loosely, got a puppy so lost all interest in Kelsey.

I hope these wonderful caring people DON’T have children. What inspiring life lessons they are learning, responsibility, loyalty and love.It would seem a child growing up in a home like that would wonder when they might be thrown away!

In May we took in a sweet dog that was going to be killed because her owners were moving. She spent 13 years in a dog run, ALONE. She is now a real couch potato. People THINK, if you truly don’t want or can’t care for animals don’t get them. If you do LOVE and CARE for them for life.
