Magrum should be held accountable for her actions
The recent seize of 64 puppies from a Lockport home, makes me wonder how this “puppy mill” made it as far as it did.
How is it that this woman’s neighbors didn’t notice the constant in-and-out of puppies?
We all have a noisy neighbor. The “watch dog,” the “cop caller” - we all have a name for THAT neighbor. So, why wasn’t this situation nipped in the butt a long time ago?
Or, was it reported and authorities didn’t do anything about it?
Either way, this woman is a disgrace to her community.
No facility, establishment, or especially a home, can house that many pets and provide a safe and clean habitat for them.
What are we, as a community, supposed to do about all these dogs?
As a dog lover, I would love to take home a bunch of puppies and give them a great life. However, that’s unrealistic and would be unfair because I know I could not afford to give them all the happy, spoiled life they deserve.
Hopefully, those who can afford to help these dogs will do just that. Whether it be a monetary donation, the purchase of a few bags of puppy chow or puppy pads, or becoming the loving owner of a sweet new puppy, I hope the community steps up and lends a hand to the SPCA.
That establishment, the SPCA of Niagara, and mostly the new director, Amy Lewis, has had a rough year.
Adding 64 dogs to their already struggling establishment - due to others negligence that occurred in the recent past - is not going to be an easy task for those volunteers.
I have confidence they can handle it, but enough is enough.
I hope this woman is held accountable for all of her offenses. Not just for her selfishness and ignorance in how to care for a puppy, but also for her negligence as a mother to her children.
Involving and exposing her teenage children in this animal circus is inexcusable.
Forcing her children to live in squalor in home filled with urine, feces and odor is not the life a fit mother would choose for her children.
Therefore, her actions would deem her an unfit mother, and there should be consequences for her actions.
If you can’t afford to take care of an animal - do not become a pet owner; if you can’t make the educated decision that putting 64 puppies in one home is too many to house at once - don’t do it; and if you are unable to determine whether or not exposing your children to that lifestyle is wrong, maybe you shouldn’t reproduce.
