    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.

    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.

    Found it
    http://spcans.ca/blog/2016/11/25/press-release/
    (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.

    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.
