The Kennebec Valley Humane Society would serve Litchfield well
We did it! Two hundred and twenty-four Litchfield residents signed petitions for us to have a choice at the June 18 annual town hall meeting: a choice between the current C&J animal shelter, an 8-by-12-foot trailer, or the shelter from the Kennebec Valley Humane Society (KVHS) in Augusta.
The KVHS shelter will be under warrant for the town hall on Saturday, June 18 at 10 a.m. at the Carrie Ricker School gymnasium, 573 Richmond R0ad. We did the groundwork and got 51 more signatures than needed. Now is the time to show up and vote.
There is a chart on the Town of Litchfield’s Facebook page comparing the local C&J shelter with the shelter and services of the Kennebec Valley Humane Society. The chart was put together by Dr Colette Bonte, a veterinarian who lives in Litchfield, and Stevanie Roy, director of operations at KVHS. The painting was reviewed by C&J operator John Alexander and Litchfield City Manager Kelly Weissenfels.
The table shows the many reasons why the KVHS Shelter is far superior to the C&J Trailer. For example, C&J does not accept abandoned animals. KVHS does. Through the City of Litchfield, C&J has $2,200 for emergency medical care. If medical care costs more than $2,200, the city will have to cover it. KVHS will pay an unlimited amount for medical care.
