Save Animals From Torture, Abandonment, and Neglect

Target: Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada

Goal: Protect animals from starvation, neglect, and abuse.

Since 1892, the animal cruelty sections of the Criminal Code of Canada have not changed. Without laws to enforce punishment, many animal abusers in Canada are not stopped. Over the last few decades several bills were presented to parliament, but all were unjustifiably denied despite petitions that collected more than 100,000 signatures. Canada needs a new offense for the inadequate and negligent care of animals, wild and domestic. Currently it is not established as a crime to willfully cause unnecessary pain, suffering or injury to an animal or bird. Nor is it a criminal offense to intentionally or carelessly abandon an animal or neglect to provide food, water, air, shelter and care.

A new section in the Criminal Code for animal cruelty offenses must be enforced, and maximum penalties for animal abuse increased. We need to seek justice for animals that are victims of chronic hoarders, repeat abusers, puppy mill operators and dog fighting perpetrators. People in Canada have to be punished who purposely injure an animal or bird now.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Trudeau,

In the Criminal Code of Canada, the animal cruelty sections have not changed since 1892. Animal abusers are not punished for their unspeakable cruel acts. Several bills were presented to parliament to enforce action against these cruel offenders, but were denied despite a public outcry. Canada needs to change the Criminal Code to stop animals from being brutally harmed. Neglecting to provide adequate food, water, air, shelter, and care is currently not recognized as a criminal offense. No person who willfully causes unnecessary pain, suffering or injury to an animal or bird is punished for their cruel actions.

Animals, wild and domestic, need to be protected from animal hoarders, repeat abusers, puppy mill operators and dog fighting advocates. Punishments for animal abusers must be increased to their maximum, and a new section in the Criminal Code for animal cruelty offenses must be made compulsory.

Change the law now. Punish animal abusers, and save the animals of Canada.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. It will be honestly hard to believe that Trudeau will get off his ass to deal with this issue – he doesn’t seem to be able to handle much of anything. Let’s hope there is a more positive way to try and stop this animal abuse.
