Letters to the Editor: April 15, 2014


Remember it is always best to seek advice from a lawyer, banker or investment broker first.

And to make it clear to the readers, I have no interest in or need the benefits so advertised on TV other than my desire to alert many of the public that might let their guard down while searching for a better future.




Pet Walk fundraiser

TO THE EDITOR: This year, the week of May 5 to 11 marks both Be Kind to Animals Week and National Pet Week.

These events both recognize and celebrate the life-saving and other services provided by animal shelters such as our local Adirondack Humane Society.

To help celebrate these events, AHS will host our 15th-annual Pet Walk from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, May 4, at the Melissa L. Penfield Park, 139 Boynton Ave., Plattsburgh.

This is our major fundraising event of the year, and all proceeds from this event support our shelter and its ongoing services and programs.

This year, we will feature music, refreshments, local vendors, dog contests, a dog painting party, storytelling from Gordie Little and demonstrations from the Search & Rescue K9 unit. 

The Adirondack Humane Society invites members of the Plattsburgh community to participate in Pet Walk 2014, talk with the staff and meet the many animals we have available for adoption at the shelter, located at 134 Idaho Ave. You can view our animals up for adoption at

The AHS serves the community in numerous ways: assisting people in adopting a new animal companion, returning lost animals to their human families, offering programs to promote responsible pet ownership, providing financial assistance for spay and neuter of pets, to name only a few. 

Since we opened in August 1998, more than 5,600 animals have found loving homes, and AHS has been financially supportive in spaying/neutering of more than 3,400 animals.
