Has anyone noticed that the people writing negative letters regarding the Humane Society are those who have been turned down for adoption — or are friends of someone who has been turned down for adoption?

I believe it is the classic case of sore loser. Some people seem to think rules and regulations should not apply to them, and they like to complain when they don't get their way.

Hopefully, the majority of our community knows that the Humane Society is a wonderful organization that is trying to do something positive. It is a group of volunteers who do not get paid for what they do, nor does the organization receive any funds from our county. It only survives on public donations — and the donation it receives when someone adopts a pet. The Humane Society is a non-profit organization whose only goal is to find the best home possible for animals no one else wanted.

I would like to thank Mr. Justin Gardner ("Confused by Humane Society leader's response," Monday, Jan. 30) for pointing out that the "young man" is 25 and working a full-time job. Given the fact that he has no fenced back yard leads me to believe that the animal he was seeking to adopt would be subjected to staying inside for at least 8 to 10 hours a day with no human interaction and no one to let him/her outside. Thank you for pointing that out.
