The Go San Angelo website featured a great editorial last week by Jenie Wilson, under the headline – “Teach children pets are living beings not to be cruelly discarded.” Wilson is the executive director of Concho Valley PAWS group.
Wilson encourages animal lovers to get involved with local rescue groups, promote spay/neuter and adds, “The only way to enact change is to be a part of it.”
And this is equally important “… thousands of purebred dogs are euthanized by San Angelo Animal Control every year.” So here is someone on the front lines in Texas who reports purebred dogs are dying by the thousands each year in a single shelter.
Yet, the folks on the other side, who constantly fight against any and all new regulation on dog breeding, continue to spread the lie that only mutts and pit bulls are in the homeless ranks. Their propaganda has their pants on fire.
