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."
Our newest rescue. Your donations can provide food, veterinary care and a loving home.

The reward is for information resulting in the conviction of those responsible for the incident.
