I realize everyone needs telling, especially some on this message board. You would be surprised who reads this board and how it filters into the greater community. It will take the entire community to have an effect on the over population and abuse of animals. A good start is to have owners who view themselves as responsible pet owners to control their dogs by following the law. The rest who don't try, well the law will have to be used to control them.

Let me start off on a happy note since for the past few days I've been upset about my neighbor situation (you know what I'm talking about if you read the post). Yesterday I was quite proud of some kids in the park. I was walking one of the neglected puppies and the kids actually showed a lot of sympathetic interest in it. They talked about how the owner should take care of it etc. It made me feel good because this is the generation we need to focus on to change the dynamic of animal abuse. So I always take the time to talk to a kid if I see them with a pet.

Now from reading people's posts the last fews days I'm realizing that what is missing in San Pedro is enforcement by the City Council. Having laws on the books is useless if there is no enforcement behind them. We can do our part to help but if the leaders of this beautiful town don't provide support what hope does the future generation have? Some may think that cruelty to animals is the least of our worries but I disagree. Abuse escalates and when the suffering of a living creature (to many God's creation if you believe in this) is seen as an arbitrary issue by a country as a whole then many other issues follow. I'm not going to pretend that I understand all the political and economically issues but I do understand suffering and abuse to life regardless if it's four legged or two legged is still abuse.

And since I mention GOD (and this may be another thread) but I do see many people attend church here. What influence, if any, can the church leaders provide on animal responsibility? All it takes is a few words during mass to start the wheels churning of the least it's a start. Not sure if SAGA representatives have approached church leaders who, I would hope, would be sympathetic to the plight of suffering creatures. Anyway...just a thought.
