The Companion Animal Adoption Centres of Québec (caacQ) informs that they are determined to change the system that kills animals in order to control animal population, a system that for too long is being lauded as the only method by city officials and government.
The caacQ is known for always seeking the best practices in regards to animal welfare. The group is known for having attended many conferences on the matter and the resounding message is sterilization with proven data to support such programs.
Last year, the caacQ was successful to bring to the province of Quebec the ASPCA of New York city to present to city officials their mobile spay and neuter unit M-6 in April 2012 in the city of Laval..
“Soon it will be year end and still no proposals from cities on the horizon. Our next step is to send a message to the Communauté Métropolitaine de Montreal (CMM) via www.sterilisation.ca to take charge of this file.” explains Johanne Tasse founder of the caacQ. The caacQ has started an online petition that asks the city to establish a pilot project that involves the mobile animal sterilization units in the city. According to the CAACQ, the method of killing as a way to control animal overpopulation is not a solution when other ethical practices are available.
They state that the sterilization units deliver quick results, while promoting the essential prevention, education and city empowerment to reduce the number of companion animals being killed by animal control. The caacQ believes that animal keepers should have access to affordable sterilization services.
