The BC SPCA has seized 14 dogs from a suspected puppy-mill in Abbotsford. See article on CTV.
Marcie Moriarty, Director of Cruelty Investigations for the BC SPCA, has highlighted the need for municipalities to ban the sale of dogs in pet stores. CTV has published Oct. 4th as the date for Richmond City Council to discuss this issue.
This comes right as we are all preparing to speak to council on Oct. 4th for the General Purposes Committee meeting, albeit the agenda item is still tentative until we hear from City Hall.
If you haven’t already sent a letter to the Mayor and Councillors regarding your support of the Ban on the Sale of Dogs in Storefronts, please email today to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
