Letters: Rescue group needs rescuing

Sooke Animal Food & Rescue Society in dire need of financial aid

We are working non-stop, always dirty, running like crazy from one side to the other to make this work for the animals. I know that you have helped us already with an article, but a lot of people do not know about us yet. People are throwing out things we desperately need such as; pet carriers, cages, cat poles, dog houses, wood and food. I am building up this foundation to create a better generation of people; people who are not going to dump animals beside the wheels of heavy trucks as they are doing now.

The cats we rescued from the landfill could have been given to a foundation in Sooke, if one would have existed at the time. The fact of throwing domestic animals on the road in the midle of the winter creates terror on the animals. You cannot imagine how much they scratched us completely frightened by human contact and how difficult it has been for us to trap them.

We need to buy special and expensive gloves and tools to deal with this. I assure you that not too many people like doing what we do; specially, when there is not money attached to it. We do not have donations, all comes out from our pockets. Since we started we only got $250 in donations, the same price of neutering a cat.

I beg you, please, help us inform people about our foundation, SAFRAS.
