A PRO­POSED state-ofthe-art an­i­mal hold­ing fa­cil­ity to be housed in Glen­den­ning would be a great as­set for the com­mu­nity. As more and more light is shed on the plight of an­i­mals held in crowded con­crete cells as they wait for their im­mi­nent death, this palace for pets could well be just what the vet or­dered. It would also boost the al­ready grow­ing trend of peo­ple res­cu­ing an­i­mals from the pound rather the go­ing to pet stores or puppy farms. If it goes ahead, the fa­cil­ity will en­sure aban­doned pets are prop­erly cared for while they wait to be re­homed. It will no doubt teach fu­ture gen­er­a­tions to treat an­i­mals with care. I for one hope the coun­cil gives it the go-ahead.
