Rant: Grinch to blame for “for rent” sign in Fairhaven

November 22, 2013 

Who’s the Grinchy Grinch who put up a large “For Rent” sign in the window of the Paws A While Thrift/Gift Shop in Fairhaven, even though space won’t be available until July 2014?

The oversized yellow sign, clearly visible from Village Books, makes it appear as if Paws A While, whose sales benefit the Whatcom Humane Society, is closed or will be shutting its door this holiday season. They are not closed!

The fundraising efforts of the Whatcom Humane Society have been “buried with a stake of holly through their heart” by this Ebenezer Scrooge of Fairhaven and his “For Rent” sign. As we approach the season of thanksgiving and good will to all men, this action is shameful!
