Join us on May 26.

Join Niagara Action for Animals – NAfA and Niagara Farm Animal Save in demanding a ban on fur farming in Ontario. This protest is part of the Weekend of Action against fur farming where animal protection groups & concerned citizens are organzing an entire weekend of public demonstrations against fur farming (May 26-May 28). More information about the campaign to #EndFurFarming will be posted soon.

Oakwood Farms – 3708 Baker Rd. Niagara Falls, ON
5pm-7pm. Dress for the weather. Signs will be provided.

The issues:
Fur farms are the puppy mills or our era. Foxes, minks, and chinchillas spend thier lives in confinement and frustration in filthy wire cages breathing in poison gas from thier own feces and urine. These local farms are in operation across Ontario. There are no government inspections, no regulation, no accountability, and no protection for these animals.

Confining and killing animals for a frivolous clothing decoration can not be justified and the majority of Canadians support a ban on fur farming. As countries across the world implement fur farm bans, the government of Ontario continues to allow the fur industry to run amok unchecked – leaving animals to be vicitimized (There are approx. 60 fur farms in Ontario).

YOUR tax money is directly supporting animal cruelty. The Federal and Provincial governments have spent millions of dollars subsidizing Canadian fur farms and issuing grants for fur “research” at institutions like the University of Guelph. This waste of our tax funds is a slap in the face to real struggling farmers who are going belly up while the fur industry rakes in huge profits.

Fur farms are a direct threat to the environment. Waste, carcasses, and run off from these farms have destroyed watersheds across Nova Scotia – putting human and animal heath at risk. Advocacy by water protection groups and the David Suzuki Foundation lead to the implementation of the Nova Scotia Fur Farm Act which imposes environmental regulations on these farms. Ontario has no such regulation leaving our waterways at risk of contamination.

If you want to stop animal cruelty, protect the environment, and want the government to stop wasting your tax money – please join us to demand a complete Ontario ban on fur farming.

 

Please note that we do have a secret event. If you are interested in joining please send us a message.

As the weather warms up we will be having more events – 2 or more per month! šŸ™‚

Hope to see you all at some of our events.
