    • Tens of thousands of cats, dogs, small animals, and reptiles roam the streets or reside in shelters, sanctuaries, and rescue organizations.
    • Thousands more suffer daily neglect and abuse at the hands of their guardians.
    • There are no criteria required for groups to be involved in animal welfare and rescue.
    • There is no accountability or funding support for these organizations.
    • There is little corporate, provincial, or federal financial support.
    • Animal protection-related legislation is outdated and unenforced.
    • Existing animal welfare initiatives within the Province are understandably stuck in emergency response mode unable to create sustainable solutions that protect animals in need over the long term.
