If you have not already heard or read about the sad news, you may want to take the time to look at this article: Memphis Animal Shelter Cruelty. (caution, graphic picture)
Not a day goes by that I don't worry about animals and the abuse that many face day in and day out. It never hurts less when I see or hear about animal abuse. I never grow calloused to it.
It hurts me so much to know my taxes have paid for human cruelty. That someone cashed a paycheck on behalf of me to abuse animals. And it hurts even more deeply to wonder if this will change-will there really be a change? I can only hope, but I have lots of doubts. I am not sure this nation, this city, has any concern for making kindess and humane treatment to animals a priority. I imagine politicians are more concerned about that new BMW and $1,000 suit, made to impress the next insecure person with waivering values.
Thanks to Shelby Angel, I do know that there are those of us out there that do care for animals and want to end the abuse. I know this because I received so many letters to Shelby Angel with best wishes and offerings of help. Let's not give up- let's keep helping- let's keep encouraging others. Thank you for all of your encouragement to me.
