...and on the eighth day God created the horse in perfect image, to romp, graze, gallop, play and make manure wherever it darn well pleases, in divine grace.
As reported in the Community News, the Conneaut Lake Regional Police Department is teaming up with T & S Second Chance Home for Animals, out in Townville, to house stray animals that police officers might encounter or have to pick up.
T & S Home is an non-profit entity and has offered to house animals for the Regional Police Department if a person is arrested and becomes incarcerated.
T & S is willing to pick up the animals, such as dogs, cats or other animals, at any time of the day or night. They will help locate an owner, if the animal is a stray, and seek medical attention for the animal, if need be.
It is reported that Chief Pfeifer is very pleased with this news.
The Crawford County Humane Society will not house a pet whose owner is incarcerated.
People must think ahead on the consequences of their actions, especially if they obtain a house cat or dog, or purchase a horse.
There is much responsibility in caring for animals, and owners must face up to this responsibility.
Jobs and budgets must be looked at, to calculate how much a large dog, several cats, or a horse eats every day.
Actions of the person must be taken into account, also, so acting with honesty and integrity would be the best option, so that pets will be insured of their needed care.
There is the issue of medical expenses, such as rabies and distemper shots, and good pet owners will spay or neuter their animal, even if the animal is kept indoors.
Dogs must have a license, as per PA state law.
Hoarding of animals is never cool; hoarding many animals that are kept in poor living conditions, who are full of fleas or lice and are producing litter after litter of babies, is never cool in my book.
The QUALITY of living conditions, food and medical care always trumps QUANTITY of animals kept.
It really says a lot about a person who doesn’t even take care of themselves or their house, let alone their animals. I mean, if you’re using drugs and don’t bother to take a shower each day or do the supper dishes, the world can fill in the rest of the story about your animals.
And don’t bother trying to say “how much you love your animals.”
What a crock.
Roseanne always likes an Action Jackson, and actions will always trump words, because action is what speaks the loudest.
I will be looking for more information on the T & S Second Chance Home for Animals, and since they are a non-profit, I would expect donations would be appreciated.
More next time.
Looking for that Spring thaw to the immortal words of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, “Happy Trails to You.”
