Let's Everybody Work Together
A kind woman called me to ask why we needed an Animal Adoption Center when we have organizations like C.A.R.E. (Chatham Animal Rescue and Education
I explained that C.A.R.E. is a rescue group, like Pet Savers NC
Local rescue groups pull animals from shelters, like the Chatham Shelter
to foster and adopt them.
The purpose of Guardians of Angels (GOA) is different, it is to build an Animal Adoption Center like those in other counties.
GOA fully supports the efforts of rescue groups as they do great and essential work.
It's oranges and apples, I explained. We need the efforts of a whole community of animal protectors to end pet homelessness.
Message from Sally Kost, Chair, Board of Commissioners, Pittsboro
Sally Kost, (pronounced Coast), is the only candidate of all the candidates we wrote to throughout the state, to respond to our Candidate Questionnaire.
Here is a quote from Sally:
"I fully support the county working with any non-profit, whether it be Guardians of Angels, or any organization willing to partner with the County to improve adoptions of dogs and cats in Chatham.
Too many animals are being euthanized in Chatham. Additionally, the current facility that shelters animals is out-dated and not appealing as an adoption center."
