Support for shelter
I WOULD like to say how sorry I am that the little boy, George Brown, was attacked by a dog and badly injured. I sincerely hope he makes a good recovery. I would, however, like to take issue with the judge s summing up in the case, which led to the owner
I WOULD like to say how sorry I am that the little boy, George Brown, was attacked by a dog and badly injured. I sincerely hope he makes a good recovery.
I would, however, like to take issue with the judge's summing up in the case, which led to the owner being imprisoned, regarding Wood Green Animal Shelter's re-homing policies.
Although I support Wood Green
Animal Shelters, I have on three occasions brought to their attention dissatisfaction of potential adopters who have been refused custody of one of their dogs because of their stringent policies. The people whose views I put to them were quite valid in my opinion.
While disagreeing with certain interpretations of their policies, which I base on my own experiences, of course, the judge's uneducated remarks concerning the Shelter were based on one dog and one incident, or the comments wouldn't have been made.
Wood Green Animal Shelters and all animal rescue centres shoulder a great responsibility under very difficult constraints and, in my opinion, do sterling work in fending for our animal friends.
