Let Ridenours help with animal problems

The powers that be within Fresno County can’t figure out what to do with the thousands of stray animals that need our help.

Not surprisingly, these elected officials were not hired as experts in the business of animal control. But, then along comes a generous entrepreneur offering his assistance. Mr. Derrel Ridenour offers his knowledge, a plan and a lucrative northwest property to build a facility. Instead of graciously accepting Mr. Ridenour’s assistance, our county administrators instead put him at arm’s length.

Mr. Ridenour and his wife, Kim, are huge animal lovers. Mr. Ridenour not only built the Derrel’s Mini Storage empire, but also established The Hope Animal Foundation, one of the premier low-cost animal facilities in California.

Mr. Ridenour is a man of action. As an example, take a look at the Derrel’s Mini Storage nearest you. It is are not just a business; it is a compliment to the neighborhood, with gorgeous landscaping and attractive walls that conceal storage compartments from view.

Our elected officials should be thanking their lucky stars that a man of Mr. Ridenour’s caliber wants to help with a problem that they can’t figure out.
