It's been one year since Parliament amended Canada's animal cruelty laws to increase the jail time and other penalties for animal abuse. Recent headlines show that little has changed.

Please take a moment to send a letter to the Minister of Justice, Rob Nicholson, as he has the authority to strengthen the animal cruelty provisions in the Criminal Code.

Absolutely disgraceful... words cannot begin to describe the horrific acts if cruelty that some people inflict on their furry friends. They should be sentenced to lengthy jail terms and more... lets hope that these laws can be passed, and they will if we stand united together and fight the good fight, giving them no rest day or night... until their open their closed ears and hear.

the laws and penelty's are far to lean,if the penelty were more severe there would be far less animal abuse,that is the best way to start to end this horribull treatment of our beloved animal companions.

My heart bleeds and breaks for that little innocent dog above and far tooooo
many that suffer like him or her. It is an abomination that these laws are
not enforced, but what is even worse is why we need them in the first place.
As long as people continue to do these horrific acts we need much stronger
laws, and follow up, to make sure they are enforced completely. The person
and I use the term loosely who did this (above picture) needs to be put
away for a very long time. As far as I'm concerned animals deserve just as
much respect, love & compassion as we show our friends and families.
