@RespectAnimal shared on twitter today the following posting done by Humane Society International. Once again we see the name of Pierre Corbeil (AKA THE DENTIST) as the one to be contacted to change animal welfare in Quebec. Please follow the steps that are needed to take action and together we can tear down the house of torture of Berger Blanc.

In light of Radio Canada’s “Enquête” investigative report on the for-profit animal control facility Berger Blanc, Humane Society International/Canada is demanding effective, more humane animal control services.
As they currently stand, animal control standards are unacceptable in Quebec. There is no existing legislation that provides uniform standards for the operation of shelters or pounds. Consequently, each facility operates under completely varied standards of care. Although a number of shelters and pounds provide the highest quality of care for animals and citizens, far too many offer substandard services, causing great suffering for animals and the public.
