Dog Kennels Along Sepulveda Boulevard

March 07, 1993

Having grown up on the Westside, I have an intimate acquaintance with, and love for, the area. Everyone I know is aware that Sepulveda Boulevard between Pico and Santa Monica boulevards has for many years been home to not one but numerous animal hospitals and kennels (Times, Feb. 14). As the community expanded, those businesses were welcomed, approved by law, and successful.

I have known Martha Wyss, the AM & PM Dog Kennel manager, for a long time and can attest that she is a woman of great integrity, with an impressive background of experience in caring for our pets. The present conflict among neighbors (regarding noise) is causing her extreme distress; she tries very hard to conduct a humane operation without disturbing others. Many of us believe that the condominium residents should have exercised greater diligence in examining the surroundings before making their decision to move there.

It is to be hoped that the 30-some years of zoning on Sepulveda will be a big factor in resolving this dispute. Apparently, both sides are willing to negotiate and compromise; this indicates good will among the litigants.
