Dealing for Doggies
Nomeites love our dogs, cats, birds and horses. We have a need to take care of the health of our beloved creatures. When they get sick they have a need for medical attention, however we have no way administer the appropriate medical attention. We have no veterinarian.
We also live in a section of the world where we have one of the most sought-after commodities—peace. We could work a mutually beneficial deal where we would sponsor a veterinarian from a war-torn nation to move to Nome where they and their family could enjoy peace and security and our animals would be healthy.
How can we go about making this happen? Could our city sponsor a vet? Could our congressional delegation work a deal? Could our Ministerial Association back a vet? Could our Chamber of Commerce extend an invitation? Could we put forth a group effort to give safety to a refuge family? Our pets deserve the best we can provide. Let’s do it for our furry and feathered friends. —N.L.M.—
