LETTERS: Gone to the dogs

Our furry family members are bringing in good money to Penticton with their little tags — they deserve a nice place to play!

When I licensed my new puppy, June of last year, she was the 1,729 dog licensed in Penticton.

If all previous dogs were licensed as spay or neutered dogs, that would be $53,599 revenue to Penticton.  (1,729 tags x $31 = $53,599)

I don’t think that kind of money is “going to the dogs” (no pun intended). Not fair.

City of Penticton dog parks are: Lakeshore beach park —  no grass or shade and very limited space.  Beautiful location that needs more attention and space for all family members to enjoy.

Industrial Avenue park — nice start, with grass, but died without proper irrigation or maintenance.

Dartmouth Road — don’t even get me started on this park, it’s pathetic. Especially since it’s so close to the SPCA, where surrendered dogs need a nice place to visit.
