Letters to the Editor 3/4/12

Huge weekend for HSNC

The City of Corsicana Animal Shelter and The Humane Society of Navarro County enjoyed tremendous success Saturday, Feb. 25. Thanks go to Paul DePugh and Cici's for sponsoring this wonderful Valentine Adoption Event. Paul DePugh offered the fabulous location as well as sponsorship of the first 20 adoption fees. Gorgeous weather, a perfect location, hardworking shelter staff,  amazing volunteers and tremendous attendance combined for a record setting 31 adoptions for the day. Many, many thanks to Paul DePugh and Cici's, Jason and April Grant, Cary Dean, Terry McElroy, Tuck and Ann Edwards and Dr. Joe and Renata Saucedo for sponsoring a total of 29 adoption fees. Many thanks to Katy Watkins and Wyndi Adkins, Michelle  Dittfurth and Jeff Schafer from the shelter staff and Katy’s family members, Kaley Nichols, Ashley Watkins and Brandy Nave for working the event.

The Humane Society wishes to thank a huge group of hardworking, faithful volunteers who transported pets, set up the adoption trailer and pens, cared for animals,  helped customers find a wonderful new friend for life, offered information on spay/neuter assistance and then dismantled the entire setup to prepare for storage until the next event:  Tuck and Ann Edwards, Kristen McCoy, Cathryn McCoy, Jimbo and Phyllis Parks, Gilbert and Jenna Hall, Tom and Daun Wilson, John and Renee Bennett, Lisa Randle, Brooke Randle, Terry McElroy, Kim Jordan, Marcia Longo, Jim Wood, Liz Kadin, Carol Horvath, Donna Robertson, Tommy Jenkins, John and Bobbi DePew, Stephen Farris, Bill Maupin and Barb Wepler. Adoption events would not be possible without the dedication of our devoted volunteers.

In addition to helping the shelter pets and staff, The Humane Society is dedicated first and foremost to the mission of reducing the overpopulation of unwanted pets through spay/neuter initiatives. While many dedicated half of the weekend to the adoption event, other volunteers devoted Sunday, Feb. 26, to spay and neuter of cats. Board members Marsha McAlister and Marcia Longo met cat owners in the CNB parking lot at 6 a.m. Sunday morning, picked up and transported 19 crated cats to Friends of the Animals spay/neuter clinic in Gun Barrel City, worked all day at the clinic and then returned the neutered cats to their owners at 5:30 Sunday afternoon.

Marsha and Marcia provided this service for cat owners on the HSNC spay/neuter waiting list on two different Sundays in February, allowing cat owners to take advantage of special pricing  during the month of February. In 2010, the HSNC provided $35,000 worth of spay/neuter to this community through grants and donations. In 2011, HSNC spent almost $32,000 on spay/neuter for dogs and cats for a total of 753 neutered animals. Spay and neuter is animal control. Spay and neuter is the solution.

Heartfelt and sincere thanks to  the dedicated volunteers and board members who make the missions of the Humane Society come to life.

    To the Editor: According to a Gallup poll, 73 percent of the American people are in favor of term limits.
    If you are one of those Americans favoring term limits there is good news. Term limits exist — they are called ELECTIONS.

    Now that the holidays for 2013 are behind us and we’ve had a brief moment to reflect back on all that has transpired, I can say that we at The Salvation Army are humbled and amazed by how this community came together to help meet the needs of so many struggling people.

    As a volunteer with the Angels of Corsicana Troop Support, most of my time all year is spent on items, especially Christmas cards, to fill the stockings when we pack in December.
