HAVE YOUR SAY: Why would the SPCA refuse help?

I don't understand the SPCA would refuse large cash donations because they come from a pet store.

I don’t understand the SPCA would refuse large cash donations because they come from a pet store. Petland offered their kennel space rent free to the SPCA so they could get more animals being seen by the public and adopted instead of having to euthanize and they refused. I thought this was supposed to be what’s best for the animals. I have volunteered at SPCAs in other areas of the island and never seen them refuse help. We all want these animals to find loving homes, so why not work together?

I want to say a huge thank you to the kind generous stranger in Starbucks this morning who paid for the next $100 worth of drinks! It made my day, and I’m sure other people’s, too! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

Dealing with car maintenance and repair is not one of those things that make the season merry and bright but Michael Lauder and Paul Henderson at Sunwest Auto definitely do. They lifted my spirits when I brought my vehicle in for a recent service and car repair. It’s lovely to deal with attentive and knowledgeable people.

A big bouquet to all those families who have taken the time and energy to put on such a light display on Farquharson Drive and Williams Road. Your neighborhood is one to be proud of this time of year.

Many bouquets of poinsettias to all the emergency nurses and Dr. Wale who attended my sister Shirley Banner in her palatine care.  Your passionate and kind care was so appreciated by her sister Bev and niece Debbie.  Also many thanks to Steve the hospital chaplain, who spent so much time with us. You made her passing so much easier on us with your prayers. And last but not least, thank you Todd from Piercy’s Funeral Home for your gentle caring for all of us. Bless you all.
