Maleah Stringer: League continues to see abuse, irresponsible owners

(Continued)

Someone else could not care for three stray cats and while she was talking to us could we take two Maltese as well? Her friend had dumped them on her and she simply cannot care for them anymore.

Clearly all of this presents a solid case of why we need people to spay and neuter their animals in our community. They have been irresponsible and when it gets too much they simply drop them off at the shelter only to start all over again because they refuse to spay and neuter even when we offer to pay for it.

It is also clear that the issues of animal abuse must be addressed as well. I hate to think of how many other animals have strings and rubber bands tied around their legs so the abuser can watch their legs and feet swell up like clown paws. I'm not really sure how to stop this, but doing nothing is not the answer.

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