PAWS AND PAGES: Animal abuse prevention

person picking chain a sad dog

Over the last few months, it seems that there has been quite a number of reports pertaining to animal abuse, negligence, and/or abandonment in the media here in the Imperial Valley.

Some are starved; most are physically abused, and some are left to deal with their injuries or illnesses on their own. Whenever these unloved animals come into the care of the Humane Society of Imperial County through animal control, we then take on the responsibility in making sure that they get the medical attention they need through a few different veterinarians who provide medical care for the animals in our shelter. After some much needed TLC, these rehabilitated orphaned pets are then made available for adoption and sometimes are sent out to our rescue groups where they are placed into loving furever families.
