Letter: Many groups will take lost, abandoned animals if people help
First Published Apr 03 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Apr 03 2014 01:01 am

A friend related an incident that happened during the winter in which a kitten was crying outside her door. One of her friends, on the phone, warned her not to let the kitten in or to feed it. She didn’t.

I would hope that everyone else knows that it is no longer necessary to be responsible for an animal (or human) for the rest of its life if you rescue or save it.

Many organizations help with lost, abandoned, hungry, freezing, and/or injured animals at no charge or for a small surrender fee ("Utah animal shelters announce statewide no-kill initiative," Tribune, March 30). One in my area, West Valley City/Taylorsville Animal Shelter, has achieved and maintained a no-kill status for over a year now. Yay!

We all need help and love. It’s the kind thing to do.
