-Shelters across Canada have been facing a serious problem for more cats are being brought and euthanized than adopted. Many healthy adoptable cats are being euthanized due to not having enough space. More than half of all cats brought to shelters are euthanized.
-The over population of cats is mostly due to irresponsible cat owners. Letting their cats outdoors without sterilization or identification. Many people also move away leaving there cats behind. Lost cats with no identification have only a 10% chance of being reunited with their owners. Many abandoned cats catch disease such as f.i.v, f.e.l.v, parasites, etc..
-Un-spayed un-neutered cats give birth to hundreds of unwanted litters every year. There are over 10.1 million abandoned cats in Canada, with thousands of feral cat colonies. One adult female cat can reproduce 3 litters a year some having even up to 9 kittens. In 7 years a female and her offspring can reproduce more than 420 000 cats.
-It is the responsibility of every cat owner to sterilize there cats. Many municipalities are now offering low cost sterilization.
Please sterilize your cat and adopt!
Circuses are some of the biggest animal abusers; they force wild animals such as: bears, elephants, tigers, and other animals to perform painful and stressful acts. The sole purpose of a circus is to entertain and make a profit but it’s sadly at the cost of animal suffering.
-On average a circus travels 48 weeks a year. During this time animals are kept in very small cages with little or no sunlight. 96% of their lives will be spent in these cages.
The training of these animals is extremely cruel they use whips, electric rods, metal bull hooks, muzzles, etc. They train the animals to fear them in order to get them to do what they want.
-No government agency monitors or inspects training sessions of circuses.
- Please do not attend any circuses which use animals instead please check out a cruelty free circus such as cirque du soleil.
