"If you see something, say something." is the new Homeland Security logo, but it also applies to cases of animal abuse and neglect.  Unfortunately, not every pet owner is a good pet owner.  Too many animals suffer horrible abuse and neglect at the hands of their owners, some for their entire lives.  Often, the neglect does not go unnoticed by neighbors or other family members but they may be afraid to complain, or they are unsure to whom the abuse should be reported.  Listed below is the contact information for agencies in our local area to whom abuse or neglect should be reported.  Reports can be made anonymously.  Remember, animals cannot ask for help; they need us to speak up for them.
Charleston/Kanawha Humane Association:  304-342-1576, ext 118, confidential voice mail.  Be sure to leave detailed directions or street address where animal is located.  Callers may leave their contact information if they wish to speak directly with a humane officer.
