Letter: Pet owners should take responsibility

Published 12:00 am Monday, February 5, 2007

How many more “dog euthanized at owner’s request” stories do we need to read about before people realize the importance of keeping their animals current on their rabies vaccination?

Owning a pet comes with responsibilities that include keeping vaccinations current, spaying or neutering and abiding by leash laws. If you are unwilling or unable to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t be a pet owner.
