It should be a felony. They get these dogs for their so called status. They walk the dogs down the street and let them defecate anywhere and leave it and then just leave them when to starve when they are an inconvenience. Dirtbags are what they are.

I wish we could make wmarincic the mayor. Maybe a little bit of the residential area of this city could be cleaned uo just a bit. Why the need to focus on State St. and Union St? The average people of the city are the ones that need the help. Or perhaps the ever popular Hamilton Hill section. Try to bring in some responsible famlilies and get Schenetady straightened out, please, Mr. Mayor.

Why do they take on ownership of animals when they can't afford to feed the human waste by-products that are born to them and we pay for? It's a lack of morals and responsibility that is ingrained into this sect of society. When someone doesn't care enough to provide for their children, animals never stand a chance. I feel worse for the animals actually....
