How can they sleep?
I had no idea about the disgraceful conditions that animals live with when housed at our Morgan County Animal Control facility until I read “Letters to the Editor” in last week’s edition of The Morgan Messenger. The Morgan County Humane Society has offered their facility for use by Animal Control for $1 per year and including all the help they can give so that these precious, living creatures picked up by Animal Control will be given the proper care and comfort they deserve.
I understand that most of the County Commissioners are dragging their feet about the offer made by the Humane Society. Private citizens have offered money donations and would volunteer their time to help where needed. I would be more than willing to pay a higher fee for my dog’s license and for anything else that pertains to the care of animals if it would help. I am sure that others would be happy to do the same. Considering all the offers that have been made there is no reason under the sun to keep these animals from being transferred to the Humane Society’s facility right this very minute except for possibly a political or monetary motive.
My question to the Commissioners is “Why? Why the delay?” I wonder how they sleep while animals are suffering in their too small kennels under the most barbaric of conditions.
See, animals can’t speak for themselves, they suffer and die courageously silently. I speak up for them when I say, “Shame on every Morgan County official who knowingly has just stood by in the past and continues to stand by now allowing this atrocity to continue.” You know it doesn’t matter whether or not your job in town is related in any way to animals. Animals are living, feeling creatures. This is a humane and moral issue that should concern every citizen, especially those who have the power to change it.
