Toronto, July 9, 2015 – With a dramatic, hard hitting public service announcement: The Heat Is On, The Humane Society of Canada is again launching its nationwide campaign asking people to leave their pets at home during hot weather.
VANCOUVER, July 6, 2015 - The Humane Society of Canada (HSC) is once again asking Canadians and companies not to support the cruel animal spectacles that form a part of rodeos like the Calgary Stampede which takes place this year July 3-12.
"Animal companions who are frightened of loud noises and bright flashes react in any of a number of ways," says Michael O'Sullivan, HSC Executive Director. "Some pets become anxious or nervous while other are terrified and try to escape – running the risk of becoming lost or injuring themselves," suggests O'Sullivan. "These animals need comforting and to be protected from potential harm."
