Bower, a pit bull, is welcomed with open arms by volunteer Holly Gumbeski, after arriving at Animal Friends in Ohio Township, Tuesday, July 9, 2013, from a shelter in Greene County. Bower and other dogs and cats were rescued today as part of Animal Friends 16th annual 'LIberation Day.' The dogs and cats rescued were scheduled to be euthanized today, July 9. Mork is handled by volunteer Becky DiLucia. Because of loud noises and outdoor activities, more dogs are lost around the Fourth of July than any other time of the year. Due to space limitations, those who are not claimed are euthanized. The animals brought in on Liberation Day will be vaccinated, bathed, and groomed, and most will be ready for adoption on July 15. The animals were given names with a 70's theme, and all over 6 months will have a special adoption price of $19.43 from July 12 through the 31st in honor of the year of the founding of Animal Friends-1943. This year, a total of 28 dogs and 5 cats were saved.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
