Re: Time to get serious about animal abuse (Dec. 4):

I just want to thank Mike Grieco for having the backbone and commitment to say it exactly like it is. Dogs are not the problem, people are.

Just what does one expect for a living being to do if it is neglected, abused or not fed? It it tries to survive just like a human would if put in the same situation.

It is the year 2015 and nothing has changed. Blame the innocent dog for trying to survive a abusive owner.

When humans are in an abusive situation we provide safe shelter and laws to deal with the abuser. If people are serious about solving this problem then go to the source: charge the owners that do not take the responsibility of providing food, water, shelter, spay/neutering and compassion.

If these people don’t fulfil these responsibilities then they should be barred from having dogs. They should be charged, arrested, jailed or fined. If we don’t do the right thing and get serious with these owners then it will only be a matter of time before an adult or child is seriously hurt or killed, and destroying the dog will not make it better.

If we don’t go to the source it will happen over and over again, and years from now where will we be? Right in the same boat and have solved nothing.
