Columnist is right; support animal groups

In a recent issue of the newspaper, columnist Lee Stokes used his talents to review the work of the humane associations, including our local one that helps lost and discarded animals.

Stokes, like myself, recently adopted a stray dog from the Hilton Head Humane Association, and also like myself, has found a true and grateful friend that has brought much happiness. Regretfully at some point in the past, Charlie, our new family member, had been abused, and it shows. However, I am sure that the problems of his past can be overcome.

I congratulate Stokes on his comments and his obvious dedication to the wonderful work of all humane associations. It was a well-written and enjoyable read with a worthy message for readers. Nice job.
