Man Honored For No-Kill Animal Shelter Work

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — A Cumberland man is being honored for helping turn the Allegany County Animal Shelter into a no-kill facility.

The Cumberland Times-News reports that Peter Masloch is among five national recipients of 2011 leadership awards from the Oakland, Calif.-based No Kill Advocacy Center.

The center announced the winners Dec. 18.

Masloch was a volunteer at the shelter in Cumberland last year when he helped lead a campaign against euthanasia. He became a paid worker in March and has helped other communities find alternatives to killing healthy, stray animals.

County Commissioner Bill Valentine recently said that adopting a no-kill policy was among the commissioners’ most important accomplishments in the past year.

    “Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
    ― Martin Luther King Jr.
