Van Wert fairgrounds no safe haven for cats

This is to urge people to please stop dumping cats and kittens at the fairgrounds in Van Wert. It is not a safe haven.

About four years ago, my wife and I observed many cats and kittens around several buildings. We decided to feed and water them at the locations where they were. This last winter we only missed one day because drives were not plowed. Recently, I was ordered to feed cats at only one location. On Aug. 22, there were only five cats at that location to feed. I'm sure many more were around the grounds.

The day I am ordered not to feed or water the cats anywhere on the fairgrounds is the day I won't attend the Van Wert County Fair, wedding receptions, anniversaries, voting, auctions, State Highway Patrol inspections or any other event there. I hope many others will follow suit.

The Van Wert County Fairgrounds are privately owned by the Van Wert County Agricultural Society, made up of elected members. The fairgrounds is not owned by the county or city.
