Hurting and abused animals

I am responding to Steve Culbertson’s Jan. 17 letter, “SPCA misused sacred song.”

He asks the question, “Am I the only person in Spokane that is offended that the SPCA uses a song (Silent Night) that is sacred to most Christians?”

I most certainly hope so!

Who cares what song is being played; Jesus would not care.

There are too many abused and hurting animals that need human beings to help them.

Mr. Culberston, I want to thank you for your letter. I am sure you have spurred many animal lovers to do even more to help their best buddies!
