You published a letter from Lynn Beasley who writes as if only she knows the facts about the Orange County Humane Society on Newland Street in Huntington Beach ("Concerns about H.B.'s animal shelter," May 12). Let me be very clear, I do not have any ax to grind with the person, only her misinformation.
Her letter centers on a $7,000 monthly payment that goes to the shelter. Her statement is that it goes to Dr. Samir Botros. How far from truth are her facts? This fee, whatever it is, goes to the shelter. In addition, AAA Animal Hospital, owned by Dr. Botros, donates close to $100,000 per year to the shelter. How much do you donate, Lynn?
Another of her points is that the shelter may become overcrowded. While her feelings are fair, her facts are false. Not once in her letter did she address all the cages in the rear of the shelter that those who visit the shelter do not see. Those cages can hold a lot more animals, which will help with the additional strays.
