GUEST VIEW: In defense of the SPCA of Niagara board


Niagara Gazette — I want to say THANK YOU in big bold letters to the current board of directors who have made such progress in less than eight months in their own time and without any compensation. The driving force for the board of directors at the SPCA is their love for the animals.

What is the driving force in people who want to sue the SPCA? How can anyone with a beating heart want to hurt an already handicapped facility and yet profess they are ‘animal activists’ who love animals?

I am a $25 member of the SPCA of Niagara and a volunteer. I do not need to choose who runs the SPCA when it is running so well by the people who have undertaken such an enormous task and are also volunteers.

I wish I had money for a lawsuit. I would give those funds to the SPCA of Niagara!

“A lawsuit against a shelter HURTS animals.” There is no way to get around this!
