THERE is no easy answer to the questions being raised about Kim’s Animal Rescue Centre.
And the Olive Press does not take lightly to reporting on it.
On one side are the people who claim to have witnessed mistreatment yet are not willing to stand up publicly, for whatever reason.
On the other, are the passionate friends and supporters of Kim Halliwell and her work, who would give everything to defend her reputation.
But the important thing here is not the so-called ‘hate campaign’ or allegations of cruelty, it is the 200-odd animals.
In the words of one respected local vet the centre has simply ‘gotten out of the control’. It is clearly too much for one, undoubtedly passionate, woman to cope with.
Whether it is more funding, an overhaul or re-homing, the animals involved need to be the priority, not the people.
The Olive Press is giving its full support to whatever is now deemed best for the animals.
