Anyone who has ever lived with a pet knows that animals experience emotions and feel both physical and psychological pain, but this is the first time in North America that these basic truths have been entrenched in law.
Animals got their day in court last week, thanks to Animal Justice. The energy in the courtroom was palpable. This is the first time the Court is considering legislation that protects animals from harmful conduct, and our legal arguments may make all the difference.
The BC SPCA received over 8,800 complaints in 2014 alone.
