Break the Chains
The Quebec Regulation Respecting the Safety and Welfare of Cats and Dogs has come a long way to help protect against animal cruelty, abuse and neglect but there are some major areas of concern that have yet to be addressed.
The new laws that set regulations for proper shelter, proper care and proper treatment contradict themselves by allowing pet owners to keep their dog chained outside indefinitely.
The law states that so long as the animal is used to living outside and so long as there are no visible signs of pain and suffering, that it is ok.
We want to Break the Chains. It is not ok to treat a dog, or any animal, like this. Dogs are extremely social animals that deserve to be loved and cared for. The SPCA West has started a petition and we have collected almost 15,000 signatures. Have you signed it yet?
