This letter is in reference to an article about helping Macon County Animal Control with finding homes for dogs and cats at the shelter. This article appeared in the Nov. 29 issue of The Macon County News. First I would like to say that any effort to help find homes for these animals is always welcome and greatly appreciated by everyone at the shelter.
Unfortunately, there were a couple of points in the article that I feel need to be corrected as they painted an inaccurate and somewhat dismal picture of Macon County Animal Control. There was a statement that “they (Animal Control) needed help badly” There are three officers, an office manager, someone who daily cleans the runs, cat cages, and adjoining areas and numerous volunteers who come at different times during the day. A higher ratio of human to animal than a lot of larger shelters.
