#VT A recent news article about apparent neglect of some farm animals in the Town of Cambridge led to a wide-ranging discussion on Front Porch Forum there. After expressions of shock and dismay, other folks added more information that helped clarify the particular situation. People discussed steps being taken by neighbors, a local vet, and state officials. And then today, Jena posted on FPF about a group forming…
Thanks so much for the emails! I’m excited by all the positive feedback for a community animal support group. Our 1st meeting is on January 3rd @ 6pm. To get to my house, turn off route 15 at The Cambridge Village Market… I’m looking forward to meeting all you kind hearted animal lovers:)
I’m eager to hear how this new group will help area animals that fall between the cracks of our faltering economy.
