The ministers responsible for animal welfare legislation in each Canadian province.

Chained and penned dogs suffer both emotionally and physically by being cruelly confined, being isolated from their family and from being denied the ability to engage in natural behaviors. Legislation is needed to protect dogs from suffering by banning and time limiting their cruel confinement. Please ensure your province becomes a more humane one by; banning the tethering of unattended dogs; by restricting the time a dog can be confined to a pen to 9 hrs in a 24 hr period; and by designating the minimum pen size at 15 sq meters for a maximum of two dogs, with 5 sq meters needed for each additional dog.

Signed,

Maggie Moore
