Pet animals? Does this cover what I see every day here in Fort Scott? The neglect of animals makes me cry and/or angry everyday. And if I voice my thoughts all I hear is this is none of my business. Dogs left on chains all day. Dogs left in subzero temperatures with no shelter. I can’t drive in any direction from my home without seeing this. Who do I call? What can I do? No one around here seems to care. It is heartbreaking!
We had an animal control officer who was excellent in answering calls for abused or neglected animals…No one had done it better. For some unexplained reason (I think she did her job TOO WELL) She was let go…Many people protested but alas it did no good. When I moved here I saw a dog in a wooden box in a yard without shade in very hot weather. I was shocked when I learned there was no SPCA here. The best you can hope for is to call the animal control department at the police station…but since they let their best officer go..I am not sure of that being a good source anymore..I do know how you feel!
