Pass Langley City By-Laws That Ban Sale of Live Animals in Pet Stores
After learning of the atrocious conditions at a pet store in Langley called Doggie World Daycare, we have started a crusade against the sale of live animals in pet stores. Pet stores financially enable puppy mills and perpetuate the overpopulation and euthanization of millions of unwanted animals every year. Federal animal cruelty laws have not been amended in Canada since 1892, but we need to start in our own backyard ultimately generating momentum towards mass change all over the country. Our first steps now are to ensure that the Mayor of Langley City, Peter Fassbender rushes newly proposed by-laws through his legislative committees this coming January 25th, 2010. We need the support of caring citizens in the community who want to see change in the archaic laws that do little to protect vulnerable animals. Please sign the petition and help us prevent the rampant abuse of vulnerable animals in this country.
