Maleah Stringer: Home gets love and helps redeem others

(Continued)

There is absolutely no excuse for the plight many animals in our community find themselves in. If Homer's owners could not afford his care they could have come to the Animal Protection League, the Madison County Humane Society or Friends for Paws. We all would have helped. Just ask.

I wonder how many people saw Homer before he came to us and turned their heads — because he smelled, because he was filthy and covered in fleas or because they did not want to be bothered.

We are going to try and save little Homer so he can be loved and spoiled for the rest of the years he has left. If you would like to help Homer you can send checks to Animal Protection League, 613 Dewey St., Anderson, IN, 46016, or pay online at www.inapl.org or our Facebook page: Animal Protection League of Indiana.

Homer will be available for adoption once he is healthy. If you have room in your home and your heart please consider fostering or adopting a shelter animal. It is estimated that in the United States alone 10 million animals are euthanized a year simply because they have nowhere to go. We are better than this — or at least we should be. Adopt a shelter animal. Save a life.

Maleah Stringer is executive director of the Animal Protection League, 613 Dewey St., Anderson. She can be reached at 356-0900 or at maleahstringer@aol.com.
