Letters: Pets and people win

Money was raised locally in Sooke to help pets in Mexico

I wish to pass on big congratulations to the prizewinners of the Mexi-Can Veterinary project Raffle, and a huge thank you to everyone who contributed.

The efforts raised over $700 towards spaying and neutering and general care for abandoned and homeless dogs and cats in Mexico.

Last week, over the course of three days, 173 animals in La Penita, Mexico, were neutered or spayed, treated for parasites, given free dog or cat food, adorned with donated leashes and harnesses and, in some cases, offered the chance at finding a permanent loving home through the adoption program.

Thank you from all the pets who now have a new lease on life.
