Ensure We Throw the Book at Animal Abusers in Quebec

 

Too often in Canada animal abusers do not face justice. Through your support, CFHS has been working to change that by building the National Centre for the Prosecution of Animal Cruelty - a training and resource program for Canadian Crown Counsel dedicated to securing animal cruelty prosecutions that result in more convictions with higher sentences.  Created in partnership with Chief Animal Protection Officers, Crown Counsel in multiple provinces, and specialized veterinarians, we are in the final stages of development of a four part webinar series, a manual and an on-line case law database. Our launch is scheduled for January 2015.

 

We need your help on Global Giving Bonus Day to have all the documents, the case law database and training sessions translated into French. We need an additional $16,000 to make sure that all prosecutors in Quebec have equal access to these invaluable resources.

 

A quick word about us: 

 

The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (CFHS) is the only national voice of Canadian animal welfare. We represent humane societies and SPCAs across the country working to build a humane Canada.

 

We value your support and ask that you help us today, on Global Giving Bonus Day, to achieve matching funds from Global Giving!

 

All the Best,

 

Barbara

Animal Protection at the Federal Level

Working with progressive members such as the BC SPCA and the Montreal SPCA, the CFHS is developing a training course for Crown Prosecutors.  The objective of this training is to enhance Prosecutors' abilities to effectively prosecute and convict crimes of animal abuse. We are able to develop this training, in part, to your support through GlobalGiving.

The CFHS continues to consult with Justice and other departments on ways to enhance Canada's provisions around animal protection.

The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies continues to educate Canadian Members of Parliament and Senators on the current state of Canadian animal welfare, including companion animals and farm animals.

Through the distribution of our Political Animal publication to the Senate and House of Commons, we are further engaging MPs on animal welfare in Canada and opening discussions on what is happening in their local constituencies.

Our work to educate our lawmakers and Crown Prosecutors continues to gain momentum thanks to your support.

Animal cruelty legislation

The CFHS convened its members on Parliament Hill this past fall on November 19.  This annual reception with MPs and Senators was great opportunity for our members to discuss the role of the humane society and SPCA in local communities.  We had many return visitors, along with Minister of Justice, Peter McKay.
