Help animals: Join co-op

Dear Editor:

I am writing in regard to the High Tails Companion Animal Cooperative and Laurie Raymond, the driving force behind its creation.

In a troubled, hopefully recovering, economy, cooperatives are the democratic way to positively affect local business. Buy Colorado? Sure! Better yet, buy Roaring Fork Valley and Colorado River Valley areas!

A lifetime membership fee of $100 will get you in the door at no risk. In the event that the cooperative never happens, all membership fees will be returned in full.

The reason we need membership even before there is a co-op is for funding. A large membership base will be a strong indicator of local support and lead to better loans and grants for initial startup.

2012 is the International Year of Cooperatives, and this co-op will be the first of its kind in the United States! Jump on board, and help us develop this fantastic resource for animals and their people.

Laura Van Dyne
