Puppy Mill legislation

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.

You can access a digital copy of Political Animal at: http://cfhs.ca/law/

Once key area that we will be focussing on this year is the potential to introduce legislation to put an end to puppy mills in Canada.  

Our work to educate our lawmakers continues to gain momentum thanks to your support.  Stay Tuned!

Shutting down more puppy mills in Canada

Thank you for your support!  With your financial contributions we can make 2013 a banner year in the fight to eliminate the market for puppy mills.  To support our groundbreaking Finding Fido program, the CFHS is launching the Choose Adoption campaign.  This national campaign will decrease euthanasia rates and diminish the demand for animals inhumanely raised in puppy and kitten mills.

The identifying marker of this campaign will be a branded teal ribbon and will elevate the concept of pet adoption by identifying an animal and/or its human companion as being associated with the pet adoption community.  The ribbon could take many forms:  as a cloth ribbon to attach to an animal’s collar, leash or clothing, as a magnet to apply to vehicles and/or as a printed collar tag.  

As we further develop this campaign to end puppy mills across Canada, you'll see more and more information about where the ribbons will be available and what else you can do to support our work in shutting down puppy mills.

Thank you again for your passion and support.  For more information about the Choose Adoption campaign, visit:  www.FindingFido.ca
