Welcome to lovely Yarmouth, Nova Scotia – now give us your dogs so we can kill them.
This is one of the most SHOCKING and SICKENING pieces of anti dog legislation I have ever seen in my life. If this law passes, and you live in this area and have more than two dogs, they will be seized and killed.
No grounds for other forms of surrender, no grandfathering, no allowances for breeders, shelters, those who foster, or for rescues.
Please – even if you do NOT live in the Yarmouth area, or even in CANADA, take a minute to let them know how you feel about this. Tell them you will NEVER spend your tourism dollars in the Yarmouth area if this horrific law passes.
Just this once, don’t let them get away with it. Here are the details about the legislation, and how you can protest:
