Think of the animals; Views of the North.

WE were quite moved when we read the article in your newspaper, October 5, of the cry for help for a greyhound charity in Washington.

We really admire this lady and her team of volunteers for their hard work and personal sacrifice to help animals who need their help to survive, they are a section of special people who give their all to help animals.

All too often animals are at the bottom of the pack when things go wrong financially or otherwise and it seems so unfair as animals give so much love, companionship, and trust unconditionally.

Animals have beating hearts, feelings and blood running through their bodies just like us but sadly no voice to say I need help.

Christmas is near and everyone will be rushing around buying presents for family and friends who may have just about everything.

As a couple we try to help and support animal charities at home and abroad all year round and have dediced to not buy chirstmas presents for family and friends and to donate the money we would spend on presents to help these animals and when we explain to the young family members why they won't be receiving a Christmas gift they will hopefully understand, and also to remember that it was an animal that helped the parents of the person who's birthday we celebrate at Christmas.

To all animal charities keep up the good work, well done and thank you.
