To the editor:

This letter is written in support of Elizabeth Epps, concerning the recent allegations against her.

I have known Mrs. Epps for 20 years, during which time she has cared for my pets on numerous occasions while we were on vacations and such. The care that she has provided has been expert, compassionate and above reproach.

It is obvious that she has a love of animals that is unshakeable, and for her to be capable of cruelty or neglect to any animal is unthinkable. For years, she was the only help available for stray, hurt or neglected animals in Suffolk, and she still can’t refuse to help a creature in trouble.

I am obviously not privy to all the details, but anyone who knows Elizabeth and has witnessed her compassion and relationships with her animals knows that these accusations are false and ridiculous.
