S.C.-CARES well worth a visit

Re "Wolves get new den," Nov. 22 article:

I was privileged to have met Cindy and Skip, the owners of S.C.-CARES in Georgetown County in early November. What a beautiful place to visit - take your family and friends to see the animal sanctuary. While Cindy was showing me all of the great animals and everything they do there, we were surprised to come back outside and find Mario, a goat at the sanctuary, eating a Christian fish decal off of the side of my company's car. What a story I had to tell my co-workers! I am sorry to have read that Mario is no longer with us, as he was hit by a vehicle. I want to let Cindy and Skip know that all of us at the pharmacy are sorry to hear about Mario's passing. This was an unforgettable trip to S.C.-CARES and I look forward to going back soon.

SC-CARES has been helping animals for over 13 years here in SC and for many years before moving to SC. It was an accumulation of circumstances, a perfect storm, that is forcing us to close. Considering Skips serious health issues (multiple myeloma cancer), our physical and emotional stress, fluctuating financial and vet support, we couldnt see a light at the end of this tunnel. We did not see a way for the sanctuary to continue in the event one or both of us encountered a crisis. We decide for the animals sake we needed to get ahead of things, before their lives are impacted from any sort of crisis situation. Recycle
