VANCOUVER, NOVEMBER 25/2011 - With Christmas and the Holiday Season just around the corner, The Humane Society of Canada is asking you to give thoughtful gifts that also help animals. “We have a wide range of gifts for your pets, family and friends. When you spend your hard earned money with us every dollar goes to help animals,” says HSC Western Regional Director, Al Hickey. The animal charity also rewards people who spend more with special telephone or online discounts of 10% and seniors get 20% off starting today Black Friday and running right through until midnight on Cyber Monday November 28th.
The Humane Society of Canada has always been opposed to all animal fighting.
NFL player, Michael Vick, has not, and will never be a spokesman for our organization.
More specifically, in a 2007 interview with Maclean's magazine, The Humane Society of Canada’s Chairman & CEO, Michael O’Sullivan said in part:
VANCOUVER, July 18/2011 – With a dramatic, hard hitting public service announcement: The Heat Is On, The Humane Society of Canada is again launching its nationwide campaign asking people to leave their pets at home during hot weather. Different versions of the multimedia PSA can be found at here.
"Animal companions who are frightened of loud noises and bright flashes react in any of a number of ways," says Michael O'Sullivan, HSC Executive Director. "Some pets become anxious or nervous while other are terrified and try to escape – running the risk of becoming lost or injuring themselves," suggests O'Sullivan. "These animals need comforting and to be protected from potential harm."
