At the Lancaster Animal Shelter, dogs are living in poverty. Several of them are living in absolute suffering at the hands of constant neglect. The conditions are dirty and the dogs are residing in their own urine and feces on a daily basis. All of the dogs are in need of a good home for any real chance of survival. Abuse in animal shelters, to most, would be viewed as a crime, but interestingly it isn’t. The abuse that takes place in animal shelters is not punishable by law so often the abuse dogs suffer goes unpunished.
In an interview with Bill Crowe, new discoveries were made into the sad and disgusting conditions that dogs at the Lancaster Animal Shelter and several others are forced to live in.
The conditions at the animal shelter were first brought to Crowe’s attention through the Antelope Dalmatian Rescue Group. The director of the rescue group called Crowe to seek help for a mother and her puppies that had been rescued from the Lancaster Animal Shelter. The woman advised Crowe that she found the dogs freezing and living in their own excrements. Immediately, Crowe knew he had to see these horrendous conditions for himself. Crowe says that what he saw was very “disgusting and disturbing”.
Crowe feels that public awareness is the start for change. Public awareness results in action which is what is necessary. Actions such as complaining, writing letters and calls to your local assembly members will bring attention. Assembly members do take notice of the issues they are presented with. Crowe believes that this is a good start.
Citizens can contact their local
representative and make their concerns known. You can call the
Public pressure is the way to create change. Crowe says that according to Gandhi, “A nation should be judged by the way they treat their animals”. Many animals are not provided the necessary mercies to present a good picture of our nation. Make a change! Volunteer, write letters and make your voice be heard.
