In June of 2019, whistleblowers had reported illegal animal cruelty happening at Mad Dogs & Englishmen dog sledding kennel near Canmore, Alberta. They had consistently found injured dogs, empty water bowls and dilapidated shelters on the property. Despite these conditions directly contradicting the Canadian Animal Protection Act, the SPCA refused to take action because of a loophole that allows sled dogs to be legally considered as livestock.
On November 16th, 2019, around 30 animal lovers publicly attended at the kennel for the purpose of documenting conditions and providing comfort to the confined dogs. As a result, 15 people were arrested and charged with break and enter to commit mischief.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Justice for the Silenced has been informed that Mad Dogs & Englishmen are struggling to provide care for their dogs, and are even requesting donations to cover food costs. We are demanding that they release all of the dogs to loving families who can provide them with warmth, attention, food, water, medical care, freedom from exploitation, and other basic rights that this company fails to meet. Help us free every last one of them!
