Re: Farm faces $720,000 in animal cruelty charges. By Ian Cumming


Dear Patrick,


The Ontario SPCA would like to thank you for allowing us the opportunity to address some misinformation that was written in the article Farm faces $720,000 in animal cruelty charges, by Ian Cumming, and to clarify the role of the Ontario SPCA.

Newmarket, ON (June 30, 2011) – Canada Day is almost here and the Ontario SPCA wants to help make it a happy celebration for everyone, including our pets.


Loud noises such as fireworks or seasonal thunderstorms can easily spook your animal. Every year the Ontario SPCA finds, or hears reports of, lost animals, simply because they ran away due to the sound of roaring thunder or breaking fireworks. The Ontario SPCA suggests the following tips to help keep your pet safe over the long weekend.
