Letters: ‘Fewer unwanted puppies’

As a volunteer at Katie’s Place, I know what happens to thousands of unwanted animals.

Re: Maple Ridge veterinarian wins human rights complaint (The News, Oct. 14).

I would like to congratulate Dr. Bhupinder Johar of Haney Animal Hospital for his win.  Thanks to him, and his low-cost spay and neuter program, many animals that would not have otherwise been altered have been fixed.

This means less unwanted puppies and kittens.

As a volunteer at Katie’s Place, I know what happens to thousands of unwanted animals.

He provides a service much needed in this community.  There are a lot of people who are overwhelmed by the prices at other vets for these procedures.

I know we all work to make money, but there are certain professions that require just a little bit more, like doing the right thing, even if it doesn’t make you rich.

Thank you, Dr. Johar.
