December 3rd is Giving Tuesday and Global Giving is giving us a chance to increase our impact by providing up to $500,000.00 in matching dollars to participating organizations based on their fundraising total for the day. How much we earn depends on how much our donors give to help us in our projects.
Humane Canada, as the founding animal welfare organization onthe National Farm Animal Care Council, is involved in several areas that promise improvements for the now more than 800 million animals that are raised for food in Canada. The Codes of Practice are nationally developed guidelines for the care and handling of farm animals. The Codes serve as the national understanding of animal care requirements and recommended practices but require constant monitoring and evaluation to ensure they are doing what is intended. To do this we support the development of assessment programs to ensure the Codes are being followed on farms but it is always a challenge to find the resources to fund our organization’s participation with industry.
We are now involved in updating the Code for dairy cattle and the Code for goats, and we have begun the work on development a Code that will examine the transportation of animals, ensuring their care meets or exceeds the federal regulations.
Your support will continue to ensure animal welfare organizations have a seat at the table and that we advocate for the best measures using science and an understanding of an animal’s needs.
