SPCA seizes 550 exotic birds in Montreal

With the events unfolding in Montreal it is important to grab hold of this opportunity to talk about the issue.  What has been reported in the last couple of days is deplorable and as a partner in the pet industry we are thankful for organizations like the SPCA who can handle situations like this one with the weight of the law behind them.  For our part as a trade association and for pet businesses it is imperative that we work within the system to ensure healthy pets are offered to our communities, including our participation in the provincial discussion regarding the development of Bill 54.  We will be watching this story closely and will continue to share details as they become available.  For the latest information click on the article below.
