In the meantime, the City of Homer continues to grow and its other high priority items are calling for attention. The animal shelter is in a precarious position of being overlooked.
With city council elections around the corner, two candidates have taken the time to come by the shelter and see first-hand how inadequate the facility is. In the past few weeks, Rose Beck and Conley Croom have both come to tour the shelter. Mr. Croom also sat in on a Homer Animal Friends meeting to learn about the group and how its work supports the city-run shelter.
All of us who work and volunteer at the shelter want to thank Rose and Conley for doing their homework to learn about one of the city's most urgent projects.
