This is in response to the letter sent in by T. Berry about the naming of the humane society cemetery.
First, the cemetery itself is for use by the citizens of this county to bury their beloved animals. It is only right that this special place have a name. Unfortunately this humane society is a kill shelter and that is sad. It has an effect on the people who work there to have to euthanize these animals that they have visited and played with every day.
I have seen it first hand. I was fortunate enough to get to speak to some of the employees there about this and could read the sadness in the eyes of the gentleman who had this duty. I can vouch for the fact that they are very pro active at DBCHS in getting these animals adopted into caring, loving homes.
As far as your idea that "What kid doesn't want a kitten or puppy jumping from a present at Christmas?" Well, plenty if you ever take a look back and see how humane society populations around the country skyrocket after Christmas.
