SPCA deserves public funding

To the Editor,

Re: Let SPCA build its own shelter, Editorial, June 26.

If there is one organization that deserves public funding, it is the SPCA. It not only provides protection for animals but it is also the ‘canary’ test of a healthy society.

The SPCA deals with all our pets and I think they should be funded. I think they are an essential service. Where would the injured, abused, sick, abandoned, lost and stolen pets be without the help and care of this society?
