THOMASVILLE — More than 30 people attended the first meeting last month of citizens concerned about animal cruelty.

The second meeting is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Thomas County Emergency Services Center, 1202, hosted by the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society and the Animal Control Division.

“Animals cannot speak for themselves” said Pat smith, Thomas County animal control director. “It’s up to us as a community to speak for them and report abuse we witness or suspect.”

Smith said there is no magic formula for ridding the world of people who abuse animals, but community involvement can help decrease cruelty cases.

“We need to speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves,” Smith said.
