I want to commend the Huron Police Department for taking action against neglectful and abusive dog owners [story May 4]. Too often these situations are ignored by not only animal control centers themselves -- I have heard the excuse that an animal had to be "contained" to be helped --but neighbors who do not want to get involved.
Pets, whether they are dogs or cats, are at the mercy of their owners to be treated with kindness and care. How long would a pet owner want to be unable to get to food or water and left out in the hot sun or pouring rain?
Again, it is wonderful these officers are being so proactive.
