Chum and Champ plight distresses her

Dear editor,

I was at the SPCA Paws for a Cause and I am so disappointed in the "crap" surrounding the two Newfies, Chum and Champ.

Dear editor,

I was at the SPCA Paws for a Cause and I am so disappointed in the “crap” surrounding the two Newfies, Chum and Champ, and how little we in the Valley have rallied around to protect them, myself being at the top of the list.

First off, nobody can talk to or ask any questions of the SPCA, as all one gets is anger and very loud voices. I do wish they could speak to concerned citizens as humans and realize that these two dogs are our concern.

Secondly, if we speak to the regional district, we get totally contradicting stories to that of the SPCA. Doesn’t SPCA stand for the protection of animals?

So, how does holding these dogs for over seven months mean protection?

I know the SPCA folks say, “Oh, they have it so good up here — all kinds of love and a big pen!” They go on to say what bad shape these dogs were in when they came to the shelter, two baths and a grooming!

Oh, my! My dog needs a bath and a grooming. Does that mean he is neglected? These dogs are farm dogs, not show dogs!

I know the SPCA will say and have been saying, “We are only contracted to hold these dogs; it’s not our doing. If they are not on line with what is happening to Chum and Camp, then they should get off their duffs and start fighting to protect them!

As to the owners of the Jack Russell, why have they not stood up to try to stop this? Is this really what they want for these two purebred Newfoundland dogs?

Maybe they can help to put the brakes on this injustice being forced on Chum and Champ and the Comox Valley. Not to mention the tax dollars being spent on this case.

We need to pray the judge will send these two dogs home, or where they will be best cared for.

Jill Kruger,

Comox Valley
