To The Editor: These sad cases of abuse do not have to happen. Franklin County Humane Society (FCHS) accepts all homeless dogs and cats brought in by area residents, regardless of their condition and regardless of a person’s ability to make a donation. These cases are illustrative of why FCHS maintains an open admission policy, as opposed to being a limited-access shelter and turning some strays away.

FCHS also schedules the intake of owned animals because often, the owned, but unwanted, become the stray and homeless. In part, FCHS maintains this policy in hopes of providing a safe alternative to cruelty. For the sake of the animals, no barriers should exist in bringing in an animal, such as turning them away because we’re full, or fees. We do ask for a donation to help with their care, but it is not mandatory for this very reason.
