I know most of the members there had either/both volunteered in some way at the shelter (some in past years), donated, fostered, and/or adopted their pets from the shelter. The reporter was told this but it seems he decided not to include it in the article.
Yeah - that comment kinda made me mad. It was a bad generalization. I know I have volunteered for the shelter a touch, and I have a vested interest in pets. I think she was just mad that they were being called on their decisions. Well, I think that was just too bad. The bottom line is the community spoke. There were a a lot of us that wondered why they had put all of those cats down. Especially w/o asking for help. To be honest - I am sorry the one gal gave up here seat instead of Cindy. That's my $.02
I chuckled when I heard someone in the meeting respond to that comment with "we put on a new roof" . I was part of that, we painted the entire shelter inside and replaced a rotten, leaky roof over a storage barn, along with installing a sink, cleaning, repairing a leaky sink, etc. It was a "Barn Raising" action, organized by one of the newest board members, Steve. http://www.pinecam.com/phpBB2/viewtopic ... 65&start=0

And here are pics of a bunch of us. Of course, I have my Marshall hat on.
The barnraisers rock. I have a facebook page of it - if anyone would like to join for info. Its is 285 barnraisers. I don't go onto pinecam anymore, so I needed some place to get info. I have met some pretty wonderful people. I am a lucky gal. I like the pic of Ed, me, Paca, and Ridge just watching. I am amazed I crawled up there as I am terrified of heights. It is where Steve-o met Wendy, so I think that is pretty cool too.
