Bravo to Mr. Steve Parr. He wrote the letter that I wanted to ("Mailbox," Sept. 5). The more I learn about this story the more I feel the system abandoned the man that had to make the desperate decision to leave his brother's dogs when he moved back east.
Humboldt Animal Shelter needs to have a "no questions asked" surrender policy for those people who can't or won't go through whatever the current paperwork/waiting period requirements are. It's supposed to be about the animals. If animal welfare is indeed a priority for Humboldt shelters and charities then I believe they should work together to make this happen.
