You did it! You wrote letters. You demonstrated. You spoke for the animals that suffer in breeding mills and the City of Vancouver listened.

On June 28, 2017 Vancouver City Council voted unanimously to ban the retail sale of cats, dogs and rabbits. Vancouver now joins the City of New Westminster (cats, dogs and rabbits) and Richmond (dogs and rabbits), along with over 200 cities across the United States and Canada that are taking a stand against this inhumane business practice.

And now, we want Nanaimo to ban the retail sale of puppies, kittens and rabbits. Nanaimo is one of the few BC municipalities that has a store that sells cats, dogs and rabbits and we want it to stop!

Let your voice be heard. On August 14, 2017 Nanaimo City Council will be discussing a motion to ban the retail sale of cats, dogs and rabbits. Now is the time to send a letter to Mayor McKay and Council and let them now you support this motion. You can find an online sample letter here or Word document here.

Your emails made a difference in Vancouver—it’s time to make a difference in Nanaimo.

We worked very hard to get a ban in Vancouver, and we were successfully because of you! Let’s keep fighting!
