In responding to Ms. Olsen's severe criticism of the Humane Society, I first want to thank her for her concern for the welfare of the animals there.
However, had she investigated a little more before being so harsh in her condemnation, she would have learned that the animals are very well cared for. Charlene, the manager, constantly recruits and trains not only many adult volunteers to help around the premises, but more importantly, she recruits young people to respect, care for and love these animals. I, a frequent visitor, have never seen anyone mistreat the animals in any way.
It is true that Charlene loves the animals. It is not true that she does not allow them to be adopted. She spends untold hours trying to find good homes for these animals. She tries hard to find prospective homes that are suitable for each animal. I am comfortable in knowing the animals will be adopted into homes where they will not suffer or be neglected.
