letter to the editor:

Sheltering the valley’s pets

Thank you so much for your wonderful article on the Lied Foundation (“The No-Kill Dilemma,” Aug. 10). I have lived here for 51 years and sadly have seen so many people come and go and leave animals behind.

I know all the sadness and tragedies of the years and can say I’m happy things have changed to the point where we try extra hard to get animals adopted or, if the worst comes, they do not suffer.

This article is a great wakeup call for many people who do not realize what the homeless animal situation is.

Animals are ambassadors for happiness and good health (they lower your blood pressure). Please know they are so in need of the human effort.
