Out & About - Sept. 18, 2014


Info meeting on animal protection proposition

The “Domestic Animal Protection League” is working to have the Kenai Peninsula Borough extend animal rescue, care & rehabilitation into the borough. DAPL is not proposing “animal control” like the cities, just care and rehab for abused, abandoned, neglect & starving animals outside city limits. As such, this is a new and different concept for the borough, and there is confusion about the advisory vote on the Oct. 7 borough ballot. DAPL representatives are visiting areas all around the borough to try and clarify the program and will conduct a Sept. 24 informational meeting at the Seward Library Museum from 6-8 p.m. along with a lunch hour visit at the Seward Senior Center.
