Animal shelter funding is questionable

In the movie "Wall Street" the character Gordan "Greed is good" Gekko says "Yuppies love animals." Being a retired veterinarian, I love animals too. However, our priorities are misplaced when we are contemplating spending $8.4 million for improvements to our animal shelter instead of providing a shelter for homeless people.
The poor we will always have with us. Why? Could it be to learn compassion and generosity of spirit? How long, oh Lord, how long.

Rick Wulff,
