Neighbors should tolerate animal shelter

Sarah Herring

Dear Editor,

I am writing in regards to an article published in your Nov. 7-8 edition, regarding CARE.

I can understand why people are angry but, at the same time, it frustrates me that people in the world today are so intolerant of those trying to make a difference. Would you file a lawsuit against a foster home or an orphanage because children are outside playing too loud?

The people at CARE should be considered heroes for taking unwanted, unloved, or orphaned, if you will, animals into their facility and into their hearts, depending on donations and the community for support.

I would suggest that instead of exhausting funds on ousting the shelter, the angry people should use their funds to soundproof their homes, or move, or maybe just stay inside and suffer like those poor animals. As I see it, the only injustice here is that it takes only one ugly person to put an end to a beautiful cause.

To everybody at CARE, both furry and human, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
