LOVE, HOPE & FAITH
I am incredibly proud to be participating in this ‘non-hostile’ campaign that will most definitely have a huge impact on our Canadian Government regarding legislation about to puppy mills and breeding practices in general. This campaign will also, undoubtedly set an example for others. It is an honour to share information with you – please join this cause.
It all began on April 19, 2012, with a tiny puppy mill survivor named ‘Ruby.’
Ruby changed our lives forever
As a result of living in a cage for six years, Ruby’s health was seriously compromised. Despite best efforts Ruby took her place among the Angels on March 10, 2014.
Ruby’s Love Letter Legacy was created in memory of this darling dog, to close down puppy mills until there are NO MORE PUPPY MILLS in Canada! A serious message, delivered in a peaceful way; a flood of red envelopes reaching government officials arriving in time for Valentine’s Day each year.
So Ruby’s life was not lived in vain, we have made a commitment to educate everyone we meet about the horror of puppy mills. Our next step is to continue to nudge our government officials through letter writing campaigns and not let up until there are NO MORE PUPPY MILLS in Canada!
The intention of this campaign is to change the laws currently protecting puppy mills and backyard breeders and to have puppy mills closed down for good.
Ruby’s team provides all the information needed to participate: names, addresses, sample letters and downloadable letterhead! You supply the red envelopes, and stamps (if required) and as many letters as you can send out!
Please join this cause and share information about:
• puppy mills and backyard breeders in Canada
• inspiring advocacy
• opting to adopt
• discouraging the purchase of dogs from pet stores or online sellers
• researching breeders before buying
WE CAN’T DO THIS ALONE
If you have knowledge or expertise in provincial/territory legislature, please contact Ruby’s Legacy team, so they are better able to convince government officials to put an end to the puppy mill madness!
This campaign was inspired by ‘Lola’s Legacy’ in the USA. Ruby’s team expressed gratitude to Sandra Parker Rouse:
We love your idea and trust it will help Canadian puppy mill dogs as much as your campaign continues to help those sweet being south of our border.
Federal MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith is supporting this cause in the House of Commons and will be introducing legislation to bring animal welfare into the 21st Century and HE NEEDS OUR SUPPORT! Click HERE! to view MP Erskine-Smith’s video endorsement of the campaign.
