I write in response to Rosey Skinner’s letter (‘Not correct’, Opinions, January 15). I hold a life membership in an animal welfare group and continue to volunteer now with Mount Alexander Animal Welfare.
May I suggest that Ms Skinner is unaware that we are indeed a ‘no kill’ shelter. Two exceptions being if an animal is ill beyond further treatment or if the animal is too savage to be handled and rehomed.
Actually Ms Skinner you did get one point correct. The shelter is not, at present, able to facilitate animals ‘for life’ but both staff and the general public foster animals until suitable homes are found.
