Letter to the Editor: If You Have Room In Your Heart And Home, Please Adopt


I read with sadness that the Pierce County Animal Shelter has an overflow of pets needing homes.

Apparently people are needing to surrender their pets due to the high cost of living. Many who have to find new housing are told that a pet is not welcome.

The shelter is lowering their adoption fee right now to give the pets an opportunity to be able to live a life with someone who will value and lovingly provide for the pet.

If you have room in your heart and home, please adopt. I know and appreciate that Yelm residents are pet friendly. Thank you.
