This letter is in response to the two letters regarding the Animal Friends Connection Humane Society.
The first letter, written by Jody Baker from Acampo, expresses her dismay at the treatment she received when trying to adopt a pet on January 17, after losing her dog of 13 years on Christmas. The second letter was from Patricia Sherman, President of the Animal Friends Connection Humane Society. I could not believe the response from Animal Friends! The paragraph about the cats not allowing a human to toss them around was very amusing! What do you have for adoption there - tigers?
I think some of you are just in the "pet business" to make money. Only those who are kind, caring individuals and truly interested in assisting with adoptions of pets, should be volunteers. I would volunteer, but I am taking care of a neighborhood full of unwanted cats.
If Jody Baker was still grieving for her lost pet, so what?! She came there looking for another pet to adopt. With all the homeless animals waiting to be adopted, she should have been given every consideration. I think Jody's letter was truthful. Patricia Sherman's letter was the typical response of a manager giving excuses for someone's bad behavior.
