Letters: Adopt a pet, save a life

Writer is concerned about the health and welfare of animals

I am writing to say when I see and hear about the abuse of poor defenseless animals that actually happens everyday here in B.C., it’s a sad state of affair. We as a community must do whatever we possibly can to prevent this catastrophe.

I have a hard time to believe there is actually scum out there who abuse, starve, beat and  I could go on and on but you get the picture.

We have to toughen the laws and we must help the wonderful SPCA who do their best to save, feed, shelter and try to find homes for these poor creatures of God’s making.

So please help save a life and adopt a pet — you won’t regret it. My heart goes out to all who care.

God bless all of you who give a helping hand and donations to save the beautiful animals who did nothing wrong but want a safe, loving, happy home. The longer you wait the longer they suffer. God will repay you with great kindness.
