On November 9, compassionate Canadians across the country are pledging to go silent for 24 hours to help the animals whose voices are silenced by industries, and by our legal and political systems.
Many people are shocked to learn that Canada has some of the worst animal protection laws in the western world.
In Canada, there are no federal regulations protecting animals from abuse on farms, in zoos and aquariums, in circuses, or in laboratories. It’s still legal to import and sell dog and cat fur, animals gunned down for trophies, and elephant ivory. In Canada, it’s legal to kill and eat your pets.
This year, Animal Justice helped get three groundbreaking new laws passed for animals in Parliament—banning the captivity of whales and dolphins, outlawing shark fin imports, and closing loopholes regarding animal abuse and animal fighting.
This was the first time that Parliament passed and new serious animal protection legislation since the 1800s. But there’s still much more work to be done to protect animals in Canada from horrific cruelty and abuse.
It’s our mission at Animal Justice to keep this momentum going. We are Canada’s only national animal law organization, fighting to transform Canada into a kinder country for animals. In additional to fighting to pass strong new animal protection laws, our lawyers defend animals in court and work to ensure the laws already on the books are vigorously enforced. The lawyers at Animal Justice have made it our mission to transform Canada's legal and political systems to bring animals the protections they desperately need.
But we need your help to make it happen.
#Voiceless4AnimalJustice is a three-week fundraising campaign to support Animal Justice’s vital work. On November 9 (or another day of their choosing), participants will take a 24-hour vow of silence to raise awareness about the animals who have no voice in our legal and political systems.
