Editor, The Record:
In response to the municipal council’s decision regarding the rejection of the Fraser Valley Humane Society’s (FVHS) request for a new facility, no, I do not support this.
I have been paying for my two dogs to be licensed, supposedly funding animal control. I have repeatedly urged council to consider applying a licence to cats to promote responsible ownership.
This massive amount of money that could support such an upgrade would hopefully solve both problems. I don’t want animal excrement in my garden any more than anyone wants it on their lawn. For the FVHS to rely mostly on donations, then so should animal control. The law regarding cats and dogs domesticated or a feral animal hasn’t been addressed since the 1980s.
A new generation is in office and should reflect growth. This is further evidence that the Mission municipality has a cat problem. Eventually something has to be done about it.
