Animal cruelty is federally outlawed in Canada, and most provinces have their own laws which prohibit or criminalize neglect. But without a national animal cruelty hotline, prevention is incredibly difficult, and reporting can be slow and confusing. It is time the country stepped up and established a national hotline to protect Canadian animals!
Sign now to demand the Parliament of Canada establish and fund a national animal cruelty reporting and prevention hotline!
Currently, dozens of separate agencies are responsible for preventing and dealing with the consequences of reported or speculated animal abuse. This means that front line animal protection is unnecessarily difficult, because it requires a complex combination of agencies and nonprofits working in different jurisdictions on different days and at different times. Imagine seeing or hearing about animal abuse and wanting to take action immediately – but not knowing who even to call about it.
Establishing and funding a national animal cruelty hotline is a simple way to immediately reduce animal abuse in Canada. Parliament must show that they care about non-human animals by creating this hotline immediately! Sign the petition now if you agree!
