black cat halloweenOctober 25, 2011, VANCOUVER – Halloween is a lot of fun for children, but it can be a terrifying time, and even a dangerous one, for many pets says The Humane Society of Canada (HSC). The national animal charity is asking that people ensure that their animal companions don't suffer during Halloween.

blessingoftheanimalsThe Humane Society of Canada would like to thank the Cathedral Church of St James for their invitation to attend their annual Blessing of the Animals ceremony. Held on the first saturday of the month, close to the feast of St. Francis of Assissi, the Blessing of the Animals celebrates the importance of pets in people's lives, and remembers the lessons of St Francis.

It was a bright, crisp morning as the ceremony was held on the lawn of the church; after the service, owners were encouraged to bring their pets up to receive a blessing by the Minister.

canmore bunniesThe Humane Society of Canada has written to the Mayor of the City of Canmore concerning the fate of the Canmore Bunnies.

Let us speak plainly in saying that the matter of the Canmore rabbits is not one of public health or safety; instead it is one of politics. Like all political
solutions applied to challenges facing interactions between animals and people they result in a miserable failure because they are intended to solve a political problem and not an animal welfare issue.

The suggestion by the current administration that the rabbits could be killed and then fed to other animals is pure sophistry inflaming the debate, rather than offering up any meaningful solutions. No matter how hard you try, you will not succeed in eliminating all the rabbits; in the end it will have the effect of stimulating the surviving population and producing even more rabbits.

In closing, we are willing to work with the people of Canmore to do whatever we can to implement a proactive humane long term solution for the rabbits and the people who care about them.

Please read the letter here.

silverpawsbrutusBrutus

A beautiful tricolour sheltie, Brutus was rescued from a home where he suffered abuse and neglect, and welcomed into a family with two small children and their Mom and Dad who were both full time university students. Fearful at first, Brutus slowly began to trust his new found family, when sudden he fell ill. Several trips to a veterinary specialist uncovered serious infections that needed immediate surgery. Unable to afford the full cost of the life saving surgery, through the generosity of donors, The Humane Society of Canada was able to lend a helping hand, and Brutus is on the mend, safe and sound with his loving family.

Even thought times were tough and money was scarce, Lestat’s family loved and cared for him as best they could, making sure he was neutered and all of his vaccinations were up to date. Suddenly, their cheerful companion became listless and and was in extreme pain. Their veterinarian told them an expensive and immediate operation was needed to save Lestat’s life because of a urinary blockage. His family reached out to us for help, and because of the caring people, Lestat is healthy and happy back in the arms of his grateful family.

SAR dog on 9/11As we remember 9/11 we need to renew our faith in humanity and remember that we are not in this struggle alone," says Michael O'Sullivan, Chairman & CEO of The Humane Society of Canada. In honouring all of those fallen, as well as the brave men and women working as part of the rescue teams at Ground Zero, The Humane Society of Canada also honours the search and rescue dogs.

 

puppypetstoreAug 17, 2011 - The CEO of the Humane Society of Canada says it's good business for pet stores to not sell puppies saying it's good for the dogs because local animal shelters and rescue groups were faced with the burden of unwanted pets and now the responsibility is back on the owners.
