Thanks Bob. (Had to. I agree with you 100%)
You give it to someone.
So you have a mutt that your child develops an allergy to and you can't keep it. If you can't put it in the classifieds how do you find the person to take it?
Sure you can. Selling and giving away are two different things.
If I was in the situation of needing to get rid of my pet, I like the idea of knowing that it's not someone like Gail Benoit who is taking a free animal to sell somewhere else, or knowing that I won't see it in the middle of the Windsor street exchange in the middle of winter while it's owner begs for money. Requiring money for it helps prevent that from happening. Like I said above the best scenario is to require a donation to a shelter. No money made and it prevents the above situations.
nothing in your suggestion would stop Gail from buying it, breeding it and selling the pups for money. Yes money may weed out some, but won't get em all. Make breeding a licened thing. You want to sell a pet, you need the proper paper work with inspections etc. This alone would stop a lot of back yard breeders as they wouldnt be able to sell the animals.
My only problem with that is the government would turn it into tax grab and would completely fuck it up.
Depends on the local jurisdiction. In Quebec they are 'sentient beings', which is a good start. http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/queb...-sentient-beings-in-new-legislation-1.2687500
I will be sure to tell them that when I see them never
I'm not talking about breeding. I'm talking about her picking up a free mixed breed puppy from Kijiji and then selling it as a purebred puppy somewhere else...for example.
those poor pups
Animal cruelty penalties should be very heavy. Abusing animals is a very good indicator of what a person is capable of. Should be a minimum of 5yrs in prison imo.
Has this person's name been released?
Which person? The puppy mill or the one selling dogs on kijiji all the time?
(Halifax, NS) November 25, 2016 – Gloria Adel Martel was charged on November 23rd, 2016 with failing to provide several dogs with adequate source of water contrary to section 22 (a), confining her dogs to an area or enclosure with unsanitary conditions 22 (d) and causing her animals to be in distress, section 21 (1) of the Animal Protection Act.
SPCA officers responded to a late night call where they found 5 dogs (1 deceased) in a parked minivan in the Halifax area. They later discovered that Ms. Martel had another 3 dogs hidden in another location. All dogs were seized and taken to the SPCA Dartmouth Shelter where they were assessed by a veterinarian. Several of the dogs had to be shaved down to the skin to remove all the urine and feces covered mats. One dog is recovering from a broken leg.
The NS SPCA operates on a policy of zero tolerance for animal cruelty and sets the standard of animal care for the province of Nova Scotia. The NS SPCA urges you to report acts of animal cruelty by contacting our confidential toll free hotline at: 1-888-703-7722.
I've heard from someone else that breeds dogs that she also went by the name of Linda Adelle Marriott when living in Spryfield.
She was living in Lakeside when this last bunch of dogs were seized.
Was she charged that time?
They should give Gail the Ramsay Bolton treatment.
They should tattoo DON'T BUY PETS FROM ME around her face.
I don't know.
