Humane Treatment of Farm Animals

Every year, more than 650 million animals are slaughtered for food in Canada. Canadians assume the government ensures the humane treatment of farm animals and are shocked to discover there are no regulations stipulating the treatment of farm animals other than animal cruelty laws, used only to prosecute egregious abuse. To counter this, CFHS negotiates directly with farmers to improve standards of care while advocating to government for tough laws through meetings, petitions and letter campaigns project reportread updates from the field
Puppy Mills = Puppy Cruelty

We need your help to expose puppy mills for what they really are - factories churning out puppies for profit, with zero regard for their well being. There are no reliable Canadian statistics on the scope of puppy mills. To date, all we have are best guesses. A conservative estimate puts the number of puppy mills in Canada in the thousands. The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies and our members want to fund a first-of-its-kind report that will expose the puppy mills. project reportread updates from the field
Animal Cruelty Legislation

Did you know that a new bill to change Canada's 120- year old animal cruelty law was passed by all parties in the House of Commons twice in 2003, but the Senate stood in its way? Did you know that the outdated wording of the current law prevents the prosecution of many serious animal abusers? Only with your support can we intensify our efforts to re-engage MPs on the need for updated animal cruelty legislation. project reportread updates from the field
Puppy Mills = Puppy Cruelty (closed campaign)

While 3-4 million dogs are acquired every year through reputable sources across North America, many more are acquired through non-reputable sources - 'puppy mills', 'backyard breeders' and stores that sell pets where breeding and living conditions are optimized for owners' profit, at the expense of animal welfare. The Finding Fido program is increasing awareness of this issue and influencing Canadians to get their dog from reputable sources (humane societies, SPCAs, breeders and rescues.) project reportread updates from the field
