Re: "Asking for a reasonable outcome for rescue" (July 5 Letters from our Readers)

 


I totally agree with Dorothy Harris; a rescue is badly needed in this area, we have no vets available on weekends, we have no place to take strays. If they were available, they would end up putting them down!

Years ago I found a dog that had heat stroke/seizures; had to call the police to take it to the vet’s office. The city of Electric City called them, and after a time the poor animal was just put down, even though it never had any more seizures. I tried to put up flyers to get it adopted, as I could not do that. By the way, the city of Electric City ended up paying for having it put down, from what I was told.

I always wanted to start a shelter here, but have no means to do it. But I think the planning commission should consider this. I think what these ladies are doing out of their own pockets is admirable. We need to speak for those who can’t; animals are important! Since it won’t cost the city any money, you’d think they would be all over this!

If this could come about, I bet people would volunteer to help for free, myself included.
