We believe that Pets Are Not Products.
Our goal is to end the retail sale of pets which, in turn, will help put an end to inhumane breeding mills. In the past, our attempts to engage with the City of Vancouver about this issue have been met with silence or resistance. But we have some good news! We wrote to the City last February (see full letter here), and, after some haranguing, one City Councillor has finally agreed to meet with us! On May 24, Kathy Powelson, our Executive Director, and three Board members will meet with Councillor Andrea Reimer at City Hall. We will present our case to Councillor Reimer as to why Vancouver should ban the retail sale of pets and hope to gain her support. Things are happening, and, while it is very exciting, it means we need your support now more than ever. Now is the time to speak up!
Please take a moment to complete our brief survey –it is so quick and easy!. Even better, take a few minutes to write to Councillor Reimer (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your Neighbourhood Councillor Liaison (which you can find here, and tell him/her that you support a ban on the sale of pets in stores. Thank you in advance for your support – we truly could not do what we do without you. Stay tuned for the outcome of our meeting with the City!
