All of us at GAHS are thankful for the Lewiston Police Department for taking the cruelty inflicted on Harlow the cat seriously and charging the individual to the full extent possible. Animal abuse is atrocious and is also associated with abuse and violence in other forms.
We, as a community, need to take all forms of abuse seriously, and act swiftly to address and stop these incidents wherever and however they may occur. We are happy Harlow is doing well, but this should never have happened in the first place.
If you feel moved to support Harlow as he continues to heal, and to help the hundreds of other animals in our care, please consider making a donation to our Sammy Fund.
