Every day, animals in our county are separated from their families.
Some are intentionally abandoned and left to fend for themselves on the side of a road in the middle of nowhere; others, for whatever reason, get out of their comfort zone, run in front of a car and end up as graffiti on the highway. This has a cost both in terms of dollars and emotions.
With the only Veterinary Medicine school in the state and a dozen or so organizations here directly involved in rescuing dogs, cats, horses and other animals, Payne County is on the edge of finding innovative ways to approach society’s infatuation with critters. We’re making a real difference here so we’re going to get together and figure out how we can do more.
This Thursday, January 9th at 7 p.m., Payne County Democrats will host a forum that’s All About Animals. We’ve invited groups from all over the county that are on the front lines when it comes to reducing pet overpopulation, enforcing animal cruelty laws and finding homes for those that have been dumped by the side of our roads.
Please come join us.
