Save Our Gary
The town of Oakville has recognized Gary as a Therapy animal and has provided an exemption to the bylaw for her.
Thanks to all who provided their support by signing this petition.
Gary the Pig is a micro pot bellied pig. She came to live with us two years ago and acts as a therapy animal for two members of our household.
The town of Oakville, where we live in Canada, has a bylaw prohibiting farm animals in the town. This law was enacted in 1965 when the town was moving from a rural to a suburban community. The bylaw does not recognize the use of therapy animals, nor does it recognize pets that are not cats or dogs.
We were forced to remove Gary from our home and have her placed on a farm. She is not a farm animal and this is causing her considerable distress. We are seeking an exemption to the bylaw for Gary.
Please support her by signing our petition.
