Maleah Stringer: As a community, let's take a stand on animal neglect, cruelty

Abusing and neglecting animals seems to be the new pastime for some folks in our community. This last week we have gotten four abused /neglected dogs and too many cats and kittens to count. Cats and kittens coming in so anemic from fleas they cannot stand. Yes, fleas can cause the death of an animal if it is severe enough and goes untreated. Tyson is a big chocolate Lab mix. We got a call from a local vet last week, the owner brought the dog to them with various untrue stories. The bottom line was he couldnâ't care for Tyson so he passed him onto someone else who said they would care for Tyson. They did not. The owner, when he found out, did do the right thing and brought him to the veterinarian where he signed over ownership. Tyson is now doing great, living in the lobby of the Animal Protection waiting for his forever home. The problem is that Tyson almost died because he was not being fed. And yet, no one was punished, well except for Tyson because he is dependent on humans to care for him. On October 14, two dogs were brought to the Animal Protection League by the Anderson Police Department. They are strays...they are under 1 yr old. They are the face of animal abuse and neglect in our community. One dog has been so long without food that she will not eat at all. The smaller dog will eat and is doing so. Both dogs were taken immediately to Devonshire Veterinary Clinic where they are receiving care. I wonder how many people looked at these two starving, pitiful dogs and turned their heads as these dogs wandered the streets? Well, we are not turning our heads; we with the help of Devonshire are going to try and save them.
