Vanderhoof needs no kill animal shelter

Letter to the editor

Editor:

 

I am an animal lover and often wonder why Vanderhoof doesn’t have a shelter of their own. Recently, our neighbours on Vanderview Drive have moved out and left their four cats and a few young kittens. I have told them politely to take their cats or they will get charged with animal cruelty but they still refuse. They also had a four-month-old puppy that they left outside in the cold and left it to run around and claimed it was their daughter’s but she never took care of it and the poor thing was called names. They were looking for the pup but I am pretty sure it ran away or even worse was hit by a car. People who do not take ownership and care for their animals should be jailed for animal abandonment and animal cruelty. I hope they get caught and I hope the District of Vanderhoof steps up and builds a no kill shelter for all the strays here.
