Even though my owner’s neighbor has called animal control, the county commissioner for my area, and the county manager, everyone either ignores the pleas for help or passes the buck. My neighbor has been calling and emailing since August 9th.
Animal control says they are out of cat traps and has done nothing to help me. The county commissioner ignores my friend’s calls. I am being starved to death along with 10 other cats. Can you get me help up here on County Line Road? I won’t last much longer.
Starving Gray Cat
TWG received a plea for help from a county citizen after they had gone through all the government channels. We are posting this to bring awareness to the situation.
Folks, Jasper County BOC seems to have plenty of money for any little thing that comes up and most big things, but can’t buy cat traps or much of anything else for Animal Control. They are always in need of food, hoses, blankets, etc. Animals are going to continue to be abused, starved, and mistreated in our county as long as the BOC does not adequately fund what is needed to do the job at Animal Control.
Let your commissioner know your thoughts about this situation.
