Animals out of Randolph Country Home

Animal cruelty can take many different forms which includes animal neglect or the failure to provide for the welfare of an animal under one’s control. People do physical harm to animal causing animals’ psychological harm in the form of distress, torment or terror may also constitute animal cruelty. In this world, there are so many possible forms of animal cruelty that causes unnecessary or unreasonable harm to an animal.

Animals at home must be provided clean (and unfrozen) water daily. Along with sufficient food after understanding each animal has different diet requirements, they should be kept in cleanliness. Many people who witness or hear about cruelty are not aware that legal action can be taken to help stop the problem. Companion animals are primarily covered by state animal cruelty laws, which vary from state to state and county to county. Animal welfare organizations across the country work daily to educate people about the proper care of animals and how to prevent animal cruelty. One must understand the animals’ needs and interact with them regularly not only so they get used to your being in the pen but also so bonds can form. A similar case was seen recently. Various animals have been removed including cats, dogs, and birds while serving a search warrant for possible hoarding at the house on Kings Ridge Road in Randleman by Deputies and ASPCA workers. After 43 animals were thrown out of her home by a Randolph Woman had been charged for it. The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office said Janet Lynn Jones is charged with 5 counts of Felony Animal Cruelty. Investigators had found that the animals were living in deplorable conditions among feces, urine, and trash in the poorly ventilated house. But now these animals are at the Randolph County Animal Shelter where they will be given proper and required treatment and care for their better health. Jones is not allowed now to have any animals in her care until the outcome of the case in court. She also received a $5,000 unsecured bond. The human-animal bond is a mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and animals that is influenced by behaviors essential to the health and wellbeing of both. Animals and humans do have emotional, psychological, and physical interactions. It is important to understand that if you own a pet, be responsible and provide him with annual veterinary check-ups and preventative medical care; spay or neuter your cat or dog to reduce pet overpopulation and urge your friends to do the same.
