Stop Animal Abuse Canada
National effort by the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies: Stop Animal Abuse in Canada!
Please help spread the word about Reforming Animal Welfare Laws in Canada.
"Did you know that Canada’s federal animal cruelty law was originally enacted in 1892?
So much has changed in Canada since those times, mostly for the good. As a nation, however, we have failed in bringing progressive positive change to improve the welfare of animals."
Please see their site to find out what you can do!
Stop Animal Abuse
Canadians can fill out a form that emails a letter to the Justice Minister. The letter can automatically be sent to their Member of Parliament, the Prime Minister, the Justice Critic too. See Speak Up For Those That Cannot
"Write to the Justice Minister to ask him to make animal cruelty amendments part of the government’s “Tough on Crime” platform. Ask him why his government refuses to recognize the link between animal abuse and violence against humans.
Tell him we need better animal cruelty legislation to protect animals as well as people. Please copy your letter to your own Member of Parliament, the opposition party Justice Critics and the Prime Minister.
Please help! Tell your friends and family about our archaic and weak federal animal cruelty law and why so many animal abusers are not punished.
