  • EDITORIAL: Animal welfare must be a priority for leaders

    Recent headlines about the seizure of dogs from a Perry County man’s home generated plenty of buzz and an outpouring of concern and assistance for those rescued animals.

But for that to happen, more of us need to get involved in helping control our local pet population and supporting advocates who want to put in place common-sense measures to protect animals.
