Shelter needs help


DANVILLE — Editor:

Once again I am writing about the Danville Humane Society. Nothing has changed. The animals are still caged 24/7 except when the cages are being cleaned. I thought the shelter was either going to be enlarged or united with the shelter on Tilton Road.

If the city can spend our taxes on cable TV for prisoners so they won’t get bored or widen our sidewalks for bicycles, then the city can scrape up some money for the poor animals.

To my knowledge, the animals are never transported to other areas so they stand a better chance for adoption, or the shelter has a fundraiser or open house to help the animals. The shelter needs to be able to have volunteers. There is always a need for newspaper, towels, food and donations. Please help.
