Animal rights activists are criticizing a new Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) policy that will ban the import of dogs from more than 100 countries.

The agency has announced that it will ban the entry of commercial dogs from countries it considers to be at high risk for canine rabies beginning September 28, which is World Rabies Day. The agency says the ban is necessary to reduce the risk of canine rabies entering Canada and defines “commercial dogs” as dogs intended for resale, adoption, foster care, reproduction, display or exhibition, research and other purposes.

“Canada currently has no active cases of canine rabies, a different strain of rabies typically found in wildlife…However, in 2021, dogs were imported into Canada with this disease,” said explained the agency in a notice published on June 28. “The importation of a single rabid dog could lead to its transmission to humans, pets and wildlife.”

Countries designated by the CFIA as high risk include Ukraine and Afghanistan, which have been hard hit by wars; and in the Philippines and China, where dogs are at risk of being sold into the meat trade.

Animal Justice, a Canadian animal welfare group, argues that the ban will prevent the rescue of vulnerable dogs in those countries by organizations and individuals in Canada.

“Many Canadians are eager to adopt dogs, but this blanket ban will condemn thousands of dogs to languish on the streets or be killed in overcrowded shelters instead of finding loving homes in Canada,” said Camille Labchuk, executive director of Animal Justice, in a press release.

The group started a petition asking the CFIA to create an exemption for animal rescues and humanitarian efforts that would allow adoptable animals to enter Canada. The US Centers for Disease Control added a similar exemption to its own dog import policy in June and now welcomes dogs from high-risk countries as long as they meet certain vaccination and quarantine criteria.

In its petition, Animal Justice alleges that the CFIA failed to consult with Canadian dog rescue agencies before announcing the ban, and claims that some of these groups are at risk of closing if they can no longer facilitate rescues. international.

One such group, Save a Friend, works with an organization in Colombia to fund medical care and find homes for rescued street dogs and pet shelters. It depends on adoption fees and donations to operate.

“It is shocking that the CFIA did not consult with the dog rescue community before implementing this sweeping ban, which could force many organizations to close,” said Roxanne Yanofsky, director of the organization, in A press release. “The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated an already dire situation in Colombia for animals, and if this policy is not changed, dogs will suffer and die in greater numbers.”

CTV News contacted the CFIA for comment, but had not received a response at the time of publication.

Follow these pet safety tips, courtesy of the Hudson Valley Humane Society, for a fun Independence Day for you and Fido.

Jhe 4th of July is cause for celebration. Unfortunately, it’s a very busy weekend at local animal shelters, which have the task of rounding up all the stray animals fleeing homes due to the noisy festivities. Before the holidays, here are some tips for keeping your beloved pets safe and sound in the Hudson Valley:

  1. Do not bring your pet to the fireworks. Keep them indoors.
  2. Close the windows! Frightened pets often run through screens.
  3. If you’re partying at home, keep your pet in a crate or a quiet room away from the festivities.
  4. Is your pet afraid of lightning? He is most likely terrified of fireworks!
  5. Always make sure your pet is carrying ID. If your ID tags are worn, have them replaced – the Hudson Valley Humane Society offers free ID tags.
  6. Consider boarding your pet.
  7. Consider dressing your dog in an anti-anxiety vest (like a Thundershirt).
  8. Never say never! If you catch yourself saying, “My dog ​​never leaves the yard/house/property,” remember: there’s always a first time for everything, and it can be fatal. Fear of an unexpected noise – like fireworks – is all it takes for an animal to run.
  9. If you spot an unleashed pet without its owner, or any animal in a dangerous situation, call your local police or the Hudson Valley Humane Society at 845.354.3124.
  10. Of course, enjoy the holidays! Be careful and spread the word to all your friends.

PLANTSVILLE – Classic cars came to Southington Drive-In on Sunday to help raise money for Best Friends for Life Animal Rescue.

Volunteers from the non-profit organization participated in the 7th annual Cars 4 Paws car show, educating visitors about their mission and how to help.

Andy Thornton, the “little brother” of Best Friends for Life co-founder Tony Bagliore, collected donations from show car owners at the entrance.

“Tony has done so much for me over the years…I’m just here today for him and the animals,” said Thornton, a Bristol native who was mentored by Bagliore through the Big Organization. Brothers Big Sisters during her childhood.

The two have remained close over the years and Thornton supports the charitable efforts of Bagliore and his wife Marina to rescue homeless animals and find forever homes for them.

“We need a lot of volunteers and people to encourage,” said Marina. “We’re spreading the word to responsible pet owners.”

Since its inception in 2002, Best Friends has rescued countless dogs across the country, nurturing them until they can be placed in good homes. Their pets can be found on petfinder.com and adoptapet.com.

Bagliore, who also owns Tony’s Oil in Southington and is an EMT, converted an old ambulance into a rescue van.

“We’ve been doing this now for 20 years,” he explained. “We basically rescue dogs that are at risk of being euthanized. We get a lot of dogs from Kentucky, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

They rely on adoptive parents like Pam Lynch to handle rescues until they can be placed in a suitable home with a responsible family.

“Tommy is my current dog,” Lynch said, showing a photo of the pup on her phone. “Last year I had seven dogs. An animal dies if I don’t take it home to feed it. It makes me cry because I love my babies.

Around 75 show cars participated on Sunday. That’s less than in previous years, which Bagliore says could be partly due to the ongoing pandemic, but also the sweltering heat of the day.

Other animal rescue organizations participated, including Desmond’s Army Animal Law Advocates. Vice President and Treasurer Linda Pleva, who lives in Plainville, was happy to be among other animal lovers.

“We try not only to raise funds, but to educate the public about what we do and why our group is so needed,” Pleva said. “We advocate for stronger laws regarding people who abuse or neglect animals.”

Animal abuse is strongly correlated with elder, child and family abuse, she pointed out.

“It’s a big red flag, this crime,” Pleva added.

Partnering with other animal rights organizations helps both their causes, according to Bagliore.

“We all do the same thing,” he says. “Help animals.”

The former boss of an “animal hospital” has been accused of causing unnecessary suffering to wild birds and a seal.

Ray Allibone, 66, from the Isle of Sheppey was due to face the allegations at Sevenoaks Magistrates’ Court today (Friday) but did not appear.

Ray Allibone from Swampys Wildlife Rescue in Sheerness with a Boa constrictor

The court heard his wife, Brenda, sent a letter saying her husband, who ran the Swampy Animal Rescue Service from their home in Diamond Court, Sheerness, was ill and unable to attend.

Allibone faces four counts of causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal.

He is also charged with failing to take “reasonable steps” to ensure a seal was kept in an “appropriate environment” and “providing an incorrect dosage of antibiotic treatment” contrary to Sections 9 and 32( 2) Animal Welfare Act 2006. .

He is further accused of keeping “several various animals and birds” in a “dirty and unsanitary condition” which was an unsuitable environment and of “failing to ensure that all animals had fresh drinking water and clean at all times”.

It is alleged that between December 28 and January 11, he failed to get a veterinarian to treat an open wound on the wing of a sparrowhawk and two similar cases for the broken wing of a kestrel . Between January 9 and 11, he is said to have failed to get a veterinarian to inspect a broken finch wing.

The allegations are made by the RSPCA following a raid on its premises on January 19. Rebecca Jones is suing.

Bench President Shelley Hein adjourned the hearing until July 8.

A request by Tahir Saeed, defending, to have the cases heard in Maidstone or Medway, which are closer to Sheppey, was turned down as there were no free slots in those two courts.

Allibone broke the news of the raid to its 7,000 followers on its Facebook page shortly afterwards.

He wrote: “Unfortunately Swampy’s is closing. This is mainly due to my health issues but also due to an intervention by the RSPCA.”

Smith County commissioners hear concerns over lack of funding and manpower for animal control https://owlandmonkeyhaven.co.uk/smith-county-commissioners-hear-concerns-over-lack-of-funding-and-manpower-for-animal-control/ Wed, 22 Jun 2022 00:38:00 +0000 https://owlandmonkeyhaven.co.uk/smith-county-commissioners-hear-concerns-over-lack-of-funding-and-manpower-for-animal-control/ TYLER, Texas (KLTV) – Animal control concerns took center stage at the start of Tuesday’s Smith County Commissioners’ Court meeting, as commissioners heard from animal rescue organizations and a citizen concerned about the resources devoted to animal control. “You can’t keep doing the same things you’re doing,” one woman said during the meeting’s public comment […]]]>

TYLER, Texas (KLTV) – Animal control concerns took center stage at the start of Tuesday’s Smith County Commissioners’ Court meeting, as commissioners heard from animal rescue organizations and a citizen concerned about the resources devoted to animal control.

“You can’t keep doing the same things you’re doing,” one woman said during the meeting’s public comment period. “Please add additional funding. Hire people who want to do the job.

“Guys, we have to do something different,” said Gwen Coyle, with Angel Paws Advocates. “It’s the county’s responsibility and it’s not being addressed.”

Among those who expressed concern was Deborah Dobbs, president and founder of the SPCA of East Texas.

“Our animal control officers are underpaid,” Dobbs said. “Our shelter is underfunded and understaffed. And it’s a really serious problem there.

Dobbs said she chose to attend Tuesday’s meeting because of a hearing scheduled for Thursday regarding a recent case of neglected animals in Troup.

“We anticipate these animals will be assigned to the county,” Dobbs said. “The problem is that there are over 20 dogs left on the property who will need to be apprehended and cared for. Unfortunately, there is no one to do that. Those 22 animals have kind of brought this to a head now because we literally can’t get out.

Smith County Pct. 4 Constable Josh Joplin was involved in the troop rescue as a courtesy after Dobbs said his calls to another neighborhood went unaddressed.

“A lot of law enforcement agencies in this area are so overwhelmed and so busy with other calls that they have a lot going on that they don’t have time to answer them, or maybe they don’t have the expertise or the knowledge on how to work this type of case,” Joplin said.

Joplin called animal cruelty a growing problem in Smith County. Smith County Animal Control and Shelter supervisor Amber Greene said concerns raised at Tuesday’s meeting could be resolved with more funding and manpower.

“Normally I have four officers working 964 square miles, and every day we handle 30 to 60 animal calls a day — just one day,” Greene said. “More funding and more staff, because that way I can finish the shelter completely as it is because we only use about 75% of it. We still have a storage room in there that we can finish.

The concerns expressed in the Smith County Commissioners Court were raised during the public comment portion of the meeting, and there were no specific agenda items related to animal control – meaning that no action was taken. Commissioners are expected to begin budget discussions at next Tuesday’s meeting.

“Until this is resolved and put on the radar of our Commissioner’s Court and the community speaks out, the Commissioners’ Court is aware that this is an important matter and that the money of the taxpayers is allocated,” Dobbs said. “This problem is only getting worse.

to play

Carmel Councilman Adam Aasen wants to ban the sale of cats and dogs in pet stores in town, although no businesses currently do so.

This is a proactive effort to ensure businesses that sell cats and dogs from puppy mills cannot do so within the city limits of Carmel, Aasen said.

“With this action, we will not affect any Carmel businesses,” Aasen said. “It’s not a preferable situation to have to close a business. At Carmel, we always try to be proactive instead of reactive.

Amendments to an existing city ordinance, sponsored by Aasen, are undergoing initial reading before the Carmel City Council at its public meeting on Monday. It will likely be sent to one of the City Council’s committees for further review after Monday’s meeting.

After: The Carmel City Council could strengthen animal welfare laws. Here’s how it might affect you.

Aasen said the existing Carmel ordinance already prohibits puppy mills in Carmel and prohibits pet stores from sourcing animals from puppy mills. Aasen’s proposed amendments to the ordinance would make it easier for the city to apply.

The ordinance amendments still allow “responsible and licensed breeders” to sell animals to consumers in Carmel, Aasen said. It also allows pet stores to continue to partner with animal rescue organizations to show adoptable cats and dogs.

“It’s not about trying to stop farming in Carmel. We haven’t received a single complaint from breeders since we tightened the order a few years ago,” Aasen said.

After: Fishermen consider stricter protections for animals

“If you’re a breeder and you do things responsibly, no one will call the police or code enforcement against you.”

In 2021, Illinois banned the sale of breeder cats and dogs in pet stores.

As a result, Indiana has seen new pet stores open last year that sell cats and dogs, said Samantha Morton, Indiana director for the Humane Society of the United States.

Morton said the Humane Society is encouraged by communities in Indiana, like Carmel, who are taking a proactive approach to banning the sale of cats and dogs in pet stores.

“Where you live in a city, you don’t necessarily have control over where that puppy mill operates, because those puppy mills are often located in rural areas, whether it’s Indiana, L. ‘Iowa or Missouri,” Morton said.

“But the communities control what they allow in their communities and the businesses that would sell these types of animals. These communities have the choice and impact to make a humane decision in moving forward with an order like this.

Additionally, Morton said the concern over the sale of cats and dogs in pet stores is not just an animal welfare issue, but a consumer protection issue.

After: HamCo Parks has big plans for Potter’s Bridge Park if the gravel pit is OK. But that’s a big “if”

“A lot of times these people buy very expensive dogs and these pet stores that often get a sick puppy where they’re kind of obligated not only if they fund it but also if the dog is sick they have to take it to the vet and the herd those kind of costs,” Morton said.

But Jennifer Clark, director of legislative outreach for the American Kennel Club, said in an email to IndyStar that retail bans can “exacerbate” the problem of bad breeders and sellers.

“The most effective way to shut down irresponsible breeders, rescues, or sellers of animals is to prevent them from making money from the sale or transfer of unhealthy animals,” Clark wrote. “The retail bans take away the choice of getting a puppy from a regulated and licensed pet store that offers consumer protections and a medical history of the animal. In many cases, the bans then drive prospective pet owners to the internet where sick puppies and scams are common.

After: Rocky has over 3 million likes on TikTok, but all he wants is a family

Additionally, retail bans may impact the rescue of legitimate breeds, Clark wrote.

“As written, this proposal would not just limit stores to sourcing from shelters and rescues. It would go a step further by only allowing them to source from rescues with no affiliation with breeders,” Clark wrote. “This could have a significant impact on legitimate breed rescue efforts.”

Carmel City Council meets at 6 p.m. Monday at Carmel Town Hall, 1 Civic Square.

ARCH – Animal Rescue Coffs Harbor – our local non-profit animal rescue group, is competing for the public votes alongside contestants Bobin and Forster.

ARCH is dedicated solely to the rescue and placement of animals that risk euthanasia if they are not found a foster family and then adopted into their forever homes.

Created in 2013, ARCH is run entirely by volunteers.

There is a committee of the board of directors as well as members who support their activities and their objectives.

All of our funding comes from donations and adoption fees and all money raised goes towards achieving ARCH’s goals.

These are mainly veterinary costs for the animals in their care.

ARCH fundraising volunteer Veronika told News Of The Area what ARCH would use the money for if they won the votes this month.

“Funds from the community funding program would go towards our vet bill.

“ARCH relies on the funding we receive through donations, adoption fees and fundraising to help cover the costs of the veterinary care we provide to all of our rescues.

“All of our rescues are microchipped (legal requirement), vaccinated (to protect against infectious diseases) and sexless (to prevent further unwanted litters).”

ARCH also makes sure they are treated for worms, fleas and ticks.

These are standard veterinary procedures that each of the rescue animals receive.

“It does not include additional treatments, medications, surgeries required for some of the cats and dogs in our care,” she said.

“ARCH is run by volunteers and supported by our wonderful foster carers – we always need more foster carers.

“All survivors in our care are placed directly into foster homes – we don’t have kennels.

“Without our host families, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

“By placing survivors in foster care, we are able to provide a safe and secure family environment from the start.

“It helps them socialize with humans and other animals that may live in the home, providing additional healthcare/medical care if needed, and it also helps us learn more about their personalities so that we can then find the right forever home.”

Ruby was a beloved K-9 trooper with the Rhode Island State Police, but she didn’t always work with them. Ruby was once an exuberant rescuer who was in and out of the shelter — fired five times by five different families, her longtime handler, Corporal Daniel O’Neil, told CBS News.

“She was deemed unadoptable, due to her high energy and she was just plain unmanageable,” O’Neil said. “[The shelter workers] I looked at her and saw she had a ton of energy that just needed to be focused and maybe put to work.”

capture-d-ecran-2022-06-14-at-12-00-40-pm.png
Corporal Daniel O’Neil believes he and Ruby were destined to be paired up when she joined the Rhode Island State Police.

Daniel O’Neil/Rhode Island State Police


They contacted the state police, who wanted to give Ruby a second chance and decided to try her out as a search and rescue dog. O’Neil was chosen to be his master.

“We were kind of parallel. Because when I was younger I was a bit of a mess. I couldn’t concentrate and I wasn’t good at school. But nobody ever told me. really given up. They said, ‘Hey, he’s a hard worker and he can really make a difference,’ he said. “And I think that’s what they saw in Ruby and that’s why we were meant to be together.”

A normal dog could be trained in a few months. For Ruby, it took a year and a half, but O’Neil didn’t want to give it up. Finally, in 2011, she was a certified K-9 soldier. Six years later, she has become even more than that: a heroine.

capture-d-ecran-2022-06-14-at-12-01-03-pm.png
Before dying of cancer in 2022, Ruby received many honors for her heroic rescue of a missing boy.

Rhode Island State Police


“We received a call from the Glocester Police Department that there was a missing boy,” O’Neil said. “And we just got out and started looking.”

About eight hours into their search, Ruby fled from O’Neil down a hill.

“I looked over the hill and saw a pair of boots on the ground, and there was a young boy lying face down and he hit his head and he had a huge laceration on his head and he was all stiff and looked like he was dead,” O’Neil recalled.

“You know, as a father, I was emotional. But as a soldier and a manager and the love I had for Ruby, I was so happy, because she had done exactly what I had trained her to do. to do over the past six years,” he said.

The boy was in critical condition and Ruby saved his life. O’Neil went to tell his mother that he had been found alive and told her that a K-9 soldier had helped save his son. It was then that they made a chance connection. The boy’s mother once worked at an animal shelter.

“And she goes, ‘Yeah, there was a dog in 2011, who I absolutely adored, who I heard became a state trooper a few years ago,'” O’Neil said. . “And I said, ‘What?'”

The mother told O’Neil her name was Pat Inman and the dog she remembered from the shelter was named Ruby. “I loved her, she was the sweetest thing,” she told him.

“I said, are you kidding? said O’Neil. “And I said, ‘Pat, that dog that you helped all those times get adopted and then become a soldier, just saved your son’s life. And of course she starts crying, and then I start crying.”

capture-d-ecran-2022-06-14-at-12-21-45-pm.png
After Ruby saved the boy’s life, his mother, Pat Inman, realized they had a chance connection. Inman knew Ruby when she was at the animal shelter years earlier.

Rhode Island State Police


Ruby has been honored for her hard work – winning the American Humane Hero Dog Award in 2018, appearing on the cover of Rhode Island Monthly magazine, and being celebrated by state troopers. But sadly, Ruby was diagnosed with cancer and passed away in May 2022.

Prior to her passing, a Netflix film about her titled “Rescued by Ruby” premiered. Ruby’s story will live on and continue to inspire countless people.

“She was the poster child for shelter dogs. I hope she’s a symbol for shelter dogs who, hey, just because they’re in a shelter doesn’t mean they are bad dogs,” O’Neil said. “They just need a chance, they just need your patience, they just need your compassion and your love, and they really can change the world.”
