Letter to the prez
(Here you go, Tai)
Dear President-Elect Obama,
My name is Annie Kosh. I’m eleven years old and attend 6th grade at P.S. 187 Hudson Cliffs School in New York City. One of my concerns is about animals in shelters. I have a puppy, and I can’t imagine her living her life like those poor animals. I would never want her to be cooped up in a cage all day, not always having clean and fresh food and water, and always being in danger of being put down or dying of sickness or starvation. Shelters like the ASPCA are trying to fix things like that, but I know that you as president would have an even bigger impact on America. You could do things like make sure the animals are never in danger of being put down, unless they are sick and in pain, and the right thing to do is put them down. You could make sure all the animals, not just dogs, will have clean food and water, be able to interact with other animals, not be cooped up in a small cage all the time, and that they are kept safe and healthy until they find a home. Now that you and your family are getting a dog, you will grow to love it and will understand more about how much animals matter to everyone, and that they deserve to be treated well and taken care of.
Thank you so much for taking time to read my concerns.
