This is my first letter to any newspaper forum. I am just very upset with the Queen Creek City Council denying a permit to Reservation Rewards Animal Rescue. Don’t they realize that the Queen Creek/San Tan Valley area is a dumping ground for dogs and cats?
This lady is the only one in this area helping these animals. Mostly, you just see them dead on the side of the roads out here. I want to commend Sheila Iyengar for the job she has done caring for everyone’s unwanted castoffs. No one else has come forward to do this and we all know the fate of these animals when they go to animal control or a kill shelter.
To the neighbor, Mr. Rispoli who she has tried to please by keeping the dogs in their kennels, have a little compassion. Your lack of sleep means a death sentence to these animals if she can’t get another no-kill overcrowded shelter to take them.
To the Queen Creek City Council, how could you be so heartless to a bunch of homeless and unwanted dogs who want nothing more to be fed, watered and loved? Shame on all of you!
Joyce Grossman, San Tan Valley/Queen Creek
