Dear Editor:

I am writing this letter to express my concern for animals. It seems that many people treat household pets like toys. When the newness wears off they are ready to push them to the side, or better yet, drop them off out of sight and hope that someone else will care for the unwanted pet.

I call it throwing them in the trash because of one reason or another. Maybe they didn’t complete a command you gave them, or maybe they did something outrageous to make you mad, or maybe if a female, she had puppies. My belief is these animals have feelings too. I have looked into the eyes of my dog when she got hit by a car and saw the sadness. She and I knew it was going to be her last breath and I will never forget it. This is where my compassion for pets comes from.

I know it gets hard at times to deal with pets, but we can be the one that is in control. First off, Logan County can make it easier to own a pet if the price of spaying and neutering was more affordable. Think about it. There wouldn’t be so many unwanted animals out there. Families wouldn’t have to worry about additional “baby” animals coming along. It won’t take care of the problem by far, but at least it would be a start.

There is a lot less love in the world than there used to be. A lot of people think they need to look out for themselves. Thinking of only yourself and not anything else. Are we so blind we cannot see we are drowning ourselves?

I challenge you to look deep down into your hearts and pull out all the love that you can find and share it, spread it around. You could build a mountain of friends you never knew could be there.

Thank you for listening to a broken hearted woman looking for hope for all of us people, animals and world.

Nancy Boyd
