Humane Net Contributes to Reward in Case of Dogs Dumped in Georgetown Canal
Humane Net, a coalition of local animal welfare organizations, has contributed to the reward fund established in response to the discovery of deceased dogs at the bottom of a Georgetown canal. This most recent case of animal cruelty has put the issue of animal welfare at the forefront of the public consciousness, and it is important to see this case through.
The current reward fund, established by Saint Frances Animal Center, is for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons responsible for what appears to be a recurring crime. An example of animal cruelty such as this, where public opinion is unanimously aligned, is an opportunity to impact the overarching issue of animal welfare and its acceptance as a worthwhile cause.
Humane Net, Inc., a non-profit organization duly organized under the law of the State of South Carolina, believes that animals, as living creatures, have value beyond economic measurement, and are entitled to top legal, moral, and ethical consideration and protection. Humane Net serves as an animal welfare communications network in the Lowcountry by:
- Acting as an advocate for the welfare of animals
- Educating our community about animal welfare concerns and rights
- Promoting legislation for the protection of animals
- And supporting other organizations with similar objectives.
