Animals ask so little of us and yet they provide us so much pleasure. Unconditional love regardless — joy, companionship when no one else is there, they listen to us without interrupting — they see the best in us. They deserve so much more from humans than to be dropped off at shelters, or left in abandoned homes, or dumped in the county, or chained outside to live their lives alone and confined.
We are starting a Spay/Neuter fund that people can donate to in order to help folks be responsible pet owners. You can send checks to the Animal Protection League, 613 Dewey St., Anderson, IN 46016 or go online at www.inapl.org. People receiving this service will be asked to pay what they can afford or to donate five hours helping the homeless animals at the Animal Protection League. Make sure you stipulate that this money is to go to the spay/neuter fund.
Maleah Stringer is executive director of the Animal Protection League, 613 Dewey St., Anderson. She can be reached at 356-0900 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
