In the background, the noise of dogs barking mixes with birds chirping as Nancy Alumbaugh stands in front of two acres of land where she hopes a new animal shelter will be built.

The dream of a shelter run by People Assisting the Lodi Shelter, where no animals will be euthanized, has accelerated during this past year. PALS has received a donation of two acres of land at Sycamore Lane Kennels, a $210,000 gift and the donation of building plans from a local architect.

    Thousands of animals are euthanized in San Joaquin County alone. Laws need to tighten so owners are forced to be more responsible. Hefty fines should prevail against owners that do not spay/neuter their family pets. The owners that let their dogs and cats run free, and let them BREED, are some of the worst.

    There is currently a high rate of pets ending up at the humane society and the animal shelters here in Phoenix. So many of themare perfectly fine for adoption. Unfortunately many will be euthanizedeven though adoption fees are being reduced.

    I would love to see both of Lodi's animal shelters (PALS and Animal Friends) work together on this project and share resources.

    I was very excited in reading this story as this is a very noble cause and is the right thing to do. Then, I looked at the cost to the ratio of how many animals can be housed, and it dashed my enthusiasm. It is depressing that we have regulated our society in such a way that it is next to impossible to afford anything of value. I have spent many weeks in Asian countries looking at costs of doing things there. For that kind of money, you could build 80 animal shelters in various cities throughout Thailand, Malaysia, India and China. Animals in Asia are important just like here. Maybe we could take that 2,000,000 and help very large numbers of animals more than we can here... I would write a check today … but not under these circumstances.

    In this economy, good luck raising $1.5 million. By the time you raise it, the shelter will have euthanized all the stray dogs and cats in the city. (Hurry up, Shelter, step it up.)
