Bravo For McKamey's Work

Re: Roy Exum:  McKamey Saves Dogs and Cats

Well said, Roy. Congrats and thanks for serving in an important, but sometimes thankless, role. 

We were fortunate to have been involved in the McKamey effort on the front end, not so much as big donors, but volunteers. We have no regrets. When we croak some day, they will receive a generous endowment from us along with whatever spayed cats we have/had. 

It was good to hear about the success they have had with pit bulls. Our neighbor across the street is a rescuer, and McKamey did a great job (on short notice) saving an abused pit mother and her new litter from under our porch a year ago. Likewise, we probably have a new litter of ferals under a porch on the other side of the house.  

We don't have the expertise to handle it, but perhaps McKamey could start a program of trapping, fixing and returning the frisky critters home for a fee.
