Animals thrive despite limits

To the Editor,

Re: SPCA strays from original mission, Letters, March 17.

J. Keijser’s statement that animals are better put down than live a life of misery hit close to home.

I doubt very much that he has ever met Tre. He’s a lovely boy that had the misfortune, while in another family’s care, to be hit by a car.

When he was found it was too late to save his leg and so a kindly person at the vet clinic took the leg off and saved his life. It is his front leg and he is a big boy, so yes, he has his limitations. Does he know what they are? Not really. He’s full of joy and love and is the neatest guy.

He belongs to my daughter and her family, but on occasion I get custody and we have a blast.

When I’ve had him out it’s amazing how many humans with challenges can relate to him. His  life is what it is and I’m thankful someone made the decision that it was worth saving.

He’s my lovely boy.
