Letter: Humane Society made right call for animals


First Posted: 8/15/2011

Kudos to the board of trustees of the Humane Society of Allen County for making the brave and the right decision to drop the no-kill policy that has been in place for six or seven yearrs. I'm sure the trustees knew only too well that they couldn't please everyone in the community, but they did the right thing for the animals.Languishing in a cage for months on end because it is unadoptable, either for health or temperament reasons, is no life for any animal. Humanely euthanizing that animal makes room for an animal that can be a wonderful pet for someone.I fully support your decision, and my membership check is in the mail.
