Forgotten Felines needs your help

To the Editor:

Neighbors, it is the time of year when we all get together with family and friends.

Can you imagine what it would be like if you had none and no one wanted you? It is not a happy thought at all.

I'm writing to tell you about Forgotten Felines and Fidos, a nonprofit, no-kill shelter in Germansville, which could use your help.

It is particularly difficult to run a shelter like this because if the animals are not adopted, they are kept there for their lifetimes. FF&F also providea spay and neutering services for very reasonable fees.
