Canada's humane societies and SPCAs have been telling their own individual stories since the 1800s, but we haven't had the chance to tell the collective, Canadian story until now. A new, first-of-its-kind sector report just released by the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies gives us that bigger picture view.
The numbers are promising but right now there are still thousands of cats and dogs in shelters waiting for their forever home. The holidays can be a magical time of year to add a companion animal to your household. Many families choose to adopt a pet and give them a home during the holiday season, creating lifelong bonds and unforgettable memories -- all while saving a life!
Why is a so-called animal rights group willing to go to war over its right to kill healthy pets unnecessarily? "No Kill" -- defined as a euthanasia rate of not more than 10 per cent of a given shelter's pets -- has been achieved wherever it has been strictly implemented. Perhaps the most sickening aspect of PETA's assault on the No Kill movement is that it blocks groups from rescuing animals in high-kill shelters.
