Letters: Lend a hand

Cat rescue supporter wants more community help for shelter

I’m sad to see there was no mention of the work that SAFARS “cat rescue” has done on the barn they leased off Grant Road. Many hours by volunteers, young and old, helped here plus handling small kittens that have been abandoned by mother cats etc., or owners.

I visit their cat home often and see how well fed and clean and cared for these animals are.

I see no funds of any kind being given to this organization, where as Penny Stone is looking for $1-million dollars in donations. Why not Sooke, trying to lend a hand? They need more space and have tried to obtain a little piece of property to develop, but no help.

If they received the that that our local Food Bank gets, I’m sure it would make a difference. Please consider this when you feed your cat.
