Keep Animals in this Election

The Ottawa Humane Society was suspended from enforcing animal cruelty legislation by the Ontario SPCA because the OHS and others opposed OSPCA actions to make themselves unaccountable. The result is that Ottawa has no locally-managed service for investigations, and availability of service has been cut drastically. The OSPCA has no meaningful oversight. Funding for animal cruelty investigations across the province still falls significantly short. 

If you are concerned about animal cruelty and neglect, please keep this issue at the front of our local candidates’ minds. 

Please consider asking questions of your candidates:

If elected:

  1. What steps will you take to ensure that Ontario’s animal cruelty law is enforced locally?
  2. Will you support full funding for enforcing animal cruelty legislation?
  3. How will you ensure that the Ontario SPCA is transparent and accountable in the future?

What greater gift than the love of a cat? (The love of a kitten…) Charles Dickens

Few can resist an adorable, fluffy, little kitten. Their innocent eyes and plaintive cries melt our hearts and urge us to protect them.  With kitten season upon us, the OHS needs your help.  Over the summer and fall months, we’re looking for 40 homes to welcome litters of unwanted and orphaned kittens, their nursing moms and our older and special needs cats.  If you already know what the love of a cat (and kitten) means, or, if you want to discover it, consider becoming a Purrrfect Pairing virtual foster.
