We had so many great people that stepped up and made this a wonderful event. Everyone came together from many places across Kentucky and over 40 people were there to greet the Veterans. This was one of our best visits in many years. The residents were blessed to see that people took time away from their busy lives to say they care. Those that attended were blessed even more. Many were not in this picture as they were talking to the Veterans at this time. Many from Bath County were there including Miss Bath County 2021 , Chynah Thompson. Thank you to everyone that cared and did so much to let our Veterans know that they are truly loved. OPINIONS The opinion page does not reflect the views of the KyNewsGroup. letter In the Editor Dear Editor/Commu- mm The purpose of this let- ter is a call to action. We need funding, volunteers, and support. Due to limit- ed resources, Bath County Humane Society's services are limited. Currently, Bath County does not have an actual shelter to house animals in need, within the county. Bath County has an "open contract" for stray animals with Tri County Animal Shelter (Clearfield, KY), per Tri County Animal According to the staff at Tri County Animal Shel- ter, since the opening of the shelter they have only received "maybe a hand- ful" of animals from Bath County. Bath County re- ceives funds to help the animals in need, along with the citizens’ tax dollars be- ing used to pay some sala- ries of some Bath County city officials. The Sheriff and Judge Executive are to oversee that the Dog Wardens' duties are being completed. The Bath County Hu- smane Society does not Shelter. The contract stateswregeivegdunds horn . the the Bath County Dog War- den is the only one that can take stray animals (dogs only) to Tri-County Animal Shelter, this contract was signed April 21st, 2015 by Bobby Rogers, Judge Ex- ecutive. local government The organization is funded en- tirely by donations from generous donors through— out the community. In the past few years, the Bath County Humane Society has offered and executed many services for the citi- zens of Bath County. We have helped to reduce the number of unwanted pets with spay/ neuter grants that were given out to the citizens via Bath County Humane Society and cur- rently through the Trap N Release program (using humane traps to capture feral cats and spay/ neuter and release them). The organization has provided large quantities of straw - for housing in winter to the communities pets. In less then a year, the Bath Coun- mane Society also offers microchipping for $30.00. These programs have helped Bath County Hu- mane Society in assisting with hundreds of animals in the past few years. These programs were executed solely with donations and volunteers. Community involvement is absolutely necessary for the success of the organization, and we are requesting a response from local citizens and county officials. No brick and mortar building for housing pets ty Humane Society has/3%} means we rely on foster distributed 183507.ponij€§§ homes. for “our. animals. of food as part of the Pet Bath County Humane Soci- Panty program. In addition to these programs, the or- ganization provides local animal adoption services, as well as advertisements for local lost and found animals. Bath County Hu- ety can ONLY take owner surrender pets. As we all knew, strays are a huge problem in Bath County. Bath County Humane Soci- ety is asking the communi- ty to be the voice for the an- imals. Please call the Dog Warden, Sheriff, Judge Executive, State Police and news channels when all else fails, for stray, abused, or neglected animals. Ken- tucky Law -It shall be un- lawful for any peace officer or animal control office to refuse to perform his du- ties under the provisions of this chapter, KRS 258.225. Please, be persistent in calling and make sure the issue is resolved.
