This petition is in honour and memory of Captain, a 2-year-old German Shepherd dog, who was discovered on July 18, 2012 wrapped in a bloody sheet and left in a dumpster in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. When Captain was found he was emaciated, cut, stabbed, and brutally beaten, likely being rendered quadriplegic. Captain passed away from cardiac arrest shortly after being rescued from the dumpster. Captain's current "owner" is suspected in Captain's death, but although the BC SPCA is recommending charges in Captain's death, no person has yet been charged.
Animals deserve humane treatment and adequate protection in their own right, so we call upon the British Columbia and federal Canadian governments to ensure laws are in place to provide such protection and see that those who do not uphold the law are punished accordingly. Thank you.
Please CLICK HERE to sign the petition to pressure Crown Counsel to accept the recommendation from the BC SPCA and approve charges against Captain's killer.
The BC SPCA is recommending charges in Captain's death! But this is just the beginning of Justice for Captain; we need to continue to pressure the government to create appropriate laws and punishments for those who abuse animals. Please sign and share this petition!
