Dutch's legacy might be this shelter's blessing. WE need shelters that have a no kill policy any Humane shelter would agree. Our pets aka our furry kids teach us what unconditional love is since humans suck at it.

Precious Spirit, please allow the Dutch's abuser[s] be exposed.

When will America pass tough laws concerning animal abuse? I've seen too many of these vile humans get just a slap on the hand. It needs to be considered a felony and some serious time slapped along with the sentence.

There are several individuals on you comment board who will take matters in their own hands. If the law doesn't honor the life of Dutch, others will.

No more dammit! No more!

Hear our humble prayer, Oh, God, for our friends, the animals. Especially for animals who are suffering; For any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; For all that must be put to death. We entreat for them all thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them, we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals and so to share the blessings of the merciful.- Albert Schweitzer

PLEASE help us catch this killer of Dutch!!!!

I was terribly heartbrokened when hearing of the passing of the cat that was found earlier this week near Geneseo... We all know how the cat was injured, but what we don't know is why? The people who did this had better realize that there is more good in this world we live in than evil... The good always conquers the bad and evil that might appear for a short time... Believe me, the people who did this can run and hide, but they will forever live in fear of what they had done, and forever live in fear of getting caught... They named the cat "Dutch" when he passed away... What a fine name for a cat who only wanted someone to care for him... What a fine name for a cat who only wanted to survive in the society we live in... What a name for a cat that went through alot of pain and suffering until his final hour... May God Bless "Dutch" and may God Bless all the people who in vain tried to save him...

If one positive thing can come from this, it's that people are aware that there are animals who need our help. I really hope that people can see why we need to fight animal abuse and to help our four-legged friends.

RIP, sweet Dutch. I'm praying that your attackers are brought to justice and that karma takes action against them.

Stupidity is not the issue...........you must not be an animal lover or wouldn't say anything like that. It's people like you that make people hurt animals, that can't fend for themselves

Joe, you can just crawl back under the rock from whence you came. Stupidity is not being able to see why we don't need animal abusers in this world. I suggest you read up about the history of serial killers. They all got their start by torturing animals. So, yes, I do care about abused animals. Their abusers usually move on to humans. Or do you not care about that either? Get a clue.

Damn, let's hope Joe doesn't get a pet. He's already brain dead.

Hey Joe, how about we nail your stupid a** to a pole and beat your worthless brain out? Sounds like it isn't working anyway.

Sounds like Joe doesn't have a heart - we all worry about the worlds problems- it's okay to stop and worry about this one too. I'll pray for you.

I agree with "Horrified and Disgusted" - look at Jeffrey Daumer history - he tortured animals before moving on to humans - Joe needs a hug.

It is a cat not a person. The person that did it should be punished. But it is not news worthy. Some people need to get a life. The world is a sad place and the news is focusing on a CAT. The same people who care about the cat want to beat Joe. How ironic is that, save a cat kill a Joe. IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!! All this over a CAT. Maybe you people need to get a life. Obviously your animal is more important than a Human being, anyone but me see the problem here!!!!!!!!!

Dutch's torture IS an indicator of all the things wrong in this world. Why time and energy was spent to do this in the first place is hideous. Why intentional pain was caused makes it worse. Why terrible things are done so frequently makes it almost unfathomable. Hopefully this will rally us to do more to stop more torture of defenseless creatures, to stop more senseless crimes, and to stop more of what we see as wrong in our worlds by changing our mindsets and laws.

Nope, I think you got this one pretty much sewed up in your own court. Good luck.

Joe - You should keep your opinions to yourself. That was very rude and selfish of you to make such an awful statement while people are upset over this. You're just another inconciderate, selfish person in this world. You're just like the person who did this. I've had cats my entire life and they have offered me more love than any person has. Animals just want to be fed and loved. They don't criticize or judge people for they way they look or act like humans do. If you had a heart, you could understand what that feels like.
