Make Sure Of All Information When Contacting Animal Control Or The Sheriff's Dept.
Our world is one of "I don't want to get involved, or I am afraid of getting sued." I had a person post a comment, anonymously, but posted nevertheless, about a possible abuse case in Huntington, WV. Unfortunately, the address I was given is non-existent.
If you see abuse going on, report it, as this person did. Be sure, though, to get the correct address. I had left a message for Chief Deputy Jim Scheidler over the week-end. First thing this morning, 6/30/08, he returned my call. I was, needless to say, very, very pleased. He personally went to the address I gave him, but it didn't exist.
Anonymous left the comment on my post about "Cloning of dogs and cats." I wish more people would take action as this person did. You can do this anonymously. It seems that our Animal Control was contacted, but never responded. The person said they had contacted the shelter, but never saw any of the control vans at the residence. But, if the address they gave me is wrong, and they gave that address to the control officers, then, of course they didn't show.
Please, please, make the call. But, again, get the correct address so the proper authorities can come and do their jobs. Anonymous had the courage to contact me. Thank you to them. If you have information on abuse, you can post it on this blog, and I will do my best to get help for the animals.
