The laws protecting the rights of animals in Canada have not significantly changed for over 120 years. While many first world and developing nations have banned the cruel practice of chaining and penning dogs, Canada still allows dogs to be put on a chain or in a pen and remain there for the entirety of their lives. Canadian law does not acknowledge the suffering inflicted on cruelly confined dogs and does nothing to protect them beyond their basics needs for survival of food, shelter and water. For animals, Canada is a cruel, inhumane country that does nothing to protect them from a lifetime of suffering. Public outrage and support is the only way to create effective and enforceable animal welfare legislation in Canada.

This petition will help convince legislators that Canadians are not satisfied with Canada's weak and long outdated animal welfare legislation and encourage them to create legislation that will protect dogs from suffering on chains and in pens.
