New standards of care for outdoor dogs

Thanks to your support and your unwavering commitment to animal welfare, there have been amendments to Provincial Animal Welfare Services Act O. Reg 444/19. This is the provincial legislation, which is enforced by the Government of Ontario, that addresses all dogs kept outdoors and includes working dogs and livestock guardians.

Bolstered by our animal advocacy champions who stand behind us, the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society was invited to share input on these updates. We are pleased to tell you that many of our recommendations were accepted in this update to the Act.

Successful Actions

City of London votes down exception for exotic animals

We have helped secure another win for animals! The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society spoke out against a recent proposal that, if passed, would have made an exemption to the City of London’s exotic animal bylaw to allow an entertainment facility that contains exotic reptiles.

ZooCheck Canada took the lead on this advocacy initiative, and we added our support in the form of a letter filed to the City of London. As a result of this opposition, council voted against making amendments to their animal control bylaw and business licensing bylaw to accommodate this proposed exotic animal establishment.

Exotic animals don’t belong in captivity for entertainment purposes. Animal welfare and public health and safety are at risk and we applaud the City of London for recognizing the risks.
