Some of you may have noticed from the classifieds that Juneau is "seeking proposals from qualified firms to provide animal control and enforcement and operate an animal control shelter and care facility."
This opens the possibility for an agency other than the Gastineau Humane Association to provide these services. I have adopted two cats and a dog from the GHS and visit the facility often. I cannot imagine a more caring, helpful, efficient and effective group of people being in charge of the needy animals in our area.
For more information on how to show support for the GHS, contact Diane in the City's Purchasing Division at 907-586-5258. She is very helpful and encourages public input. You can send written comments to the attention of Diane at CBJ Purchasing, 155 S. Seward Street, Juneau, AK 99801.
The Gastineau Humane Association needs our support. Let's not let them down.
