Take responsibility for animal abandonment | Animals R Us | Scoop.it

Regardless of one’s opinion or lack of knowledge about cats, the overpopulation and situation they are in is not their responsibility, it is a human failure.

If we are to have a civil, compassionate society, then we need to implement programs and take the steps to care for all living beings in our town, in our county, in our world. Those who abuse animals need to be held accountable to the law.
