Emotions run high when advocating for animals, but we have a much better chance of being heard and taken seriously if we conduct ourselves in a courteous and respectful manner. Please keep ALL correspondence concerning Bill and Lou polite and respectful while remaining steadfast in our desire to see them released to a sanctuary. Every positive action we take is important. Thanks for caring about these gentle giants.
