Animal Bylaws in Swift Current
This petition is for The City of Swift Current to offer more resources and update their bylaws surrounding animal rights. The City has bylaws concerning the "licensing, regulating, and controlling of animals" but does not have bylaws concerning how these animals are being treated in return. The "Animal Control Bylaw" shown in the City of Swift Current's BYLAW NO.1-1991 was made 26 years ago. Other cities like Saskatoon and Yorkton are doing more to protect the rights of animals. BYLAW NO. 5048 found on the City of Saskatoon website discusses how the SPCA is required by the city to “facilitate and provide for the prevention of cruelty to animals and their protection and relief therefrom and to inculcate the principles of and the desire for more humane treatment of animals”. It would be beneficial to the community to help the Swift Current SPCA have more resources for concerned citizens. It would also be beneficial for the current bylaws to be updated to include what citizens are to do when an animal is in distress. Please sign this petition to show The City of Swift Current that the current bylaws need to be updated to include the humane treatment of our furry friends, and to offer more available resources for concerned citizens. Thank you.
