Letters: Humane society support

Victoria Humane Society gets support from Sooke resident

My support is for the Victoria Humane Society (VHS). It is a branch of the Humane Society which has animal shelters throughout Canada. These shelters follow set rules and regulations. VHS’s policies and procedures have been formed over the year through the experience, ideas and opinions of its members. As other successful charitable societies do, it respects its competitors and uses them as a barometer on how the are performing and are  willing to be open to new practices.

VHS has hired Penny Stone as its executive director to fund raise and create an animal shelter in East Sooke. Thanks to her positive energy, VHS has had some amazing donations and I believe under Penny’s administration, VHS shall be successful.

I met Penny when I got my present dog a couple of years ago. I was impressed with her professional and business-like manner. Her sincere love of animals was very obvious and her care in selecting the right owner for the animal was very skillful.

I intend to donate monthly and to volunteer in the future. I hope Penny gets a good salary and benefits. She deserves it.
