Creston residents want tax dollars to support Pet Adoption and Welfare Society

Web Lead

To the Editor:

In response to Marion Rinas (“Alternative approval process amounts to ‘taxation by committee’”) and all other “nay-barkers”, our answer is yes, we do want some of our tax dollars used to support the Pet Adoption and Welfare Society in Creston.

The amount of work and caring PAWS gives to our four-legged friends is next to “purrfect” and we are so thankful for their efforts. We support their fundraisers when we can, but we welcome the chance to contribute on a regular basis. Thanks to the Regional District of Central Kootenay and the alternative approval process of determining voter opinion, we can hope that a few of our tax dollars will go to PAWS in future.

We also hope that 10 per cent of voters do not gallop to the RDCK office to give a “neigh” to this very humane endeavor.
