Letter to the Editor
Shame on Mayor Peterson and shame on the Liberty Lake City Council members for even considering abandoning SCRAPS and returning the responsibility of animal control to the Liberty Lake police and/or Spokanimal. We tried that once (from 2004 - 2008), and it didn't work!
SCRAPS is a top-notch, professional organization. They provide excellent service and have done an amazing job dealing with overwhelming and often heart-breaking situations. If Liberty Lake pulls out of SCRAPS, it will be a disservice not just to our community, but will jeopardize the funding SCRAPS needs to continue many of their really wonderful programs and services.
I realize that money is tight, but please don't balance the budget at the expense of helpless animals. Please stick with SCRAPS.
