JANE CUNNINGHAM: For the sake of our animals, come to the table (column)

Cheaha Regional Humane Society

Jane Cunningham, director of the Cheaha Regional Humane Society plays with dogs that are in the center's cages.

We were stunned when the Calhoun County Commission voted 3-2 to end its contract with Cheaha Regional Humane Society. We strongly urge the Commission to reconsider that action, take another vote, and extend its contract with Cheaha Regional Humane Society. County officials have said the County plans to take over all shelter operations March 1. Animal lives are stake, and the quality of life for our community is at stake.

We applaud Commissioners Tim Hodges and J.D Hess for voting to continue the contract with Cheaha Regional Humane Society. We encourage Commissioners Lee Patterson Fred Wilson and Eli Henderson to reconsider and vote to extend the contract. Cheaha Regional Humane Society saves and rehomes hundreds of animals every year.
