An Invitation ...Say No to Puppy Mills

Hull Court House, 17 rue Laurier, Gatineau, QC, at 9:30 am on Friday, June 22nd, 2012

(From Mel) I received this in my email today, and thought it was important to pass along. Most of us have met or know of at least one dog that was rescued from Paws R Us that fateful September 16th day. The Labombards will be back in court this Friday, June 22nd where the judge will determine whether or not they are allowed to continue breeding and neglecting animals. If you are free that day, I encourage you to join the peaceful protest and make yourself heard. Do it for Bogey and Nanny McPhee, and the 600+ other dogs who suffered at the hands of the Labombards.

Hello Friends -

Some of you may already be aware of a peaceful demonstration against puppy mills, taking place this Friday, June 22nd (full invitation below

We expect to see a good group of animal advocates at this event, and would like to invite you, as a fellow animal lover, to join us in our cause. In the event that you are unable to attend, thanks in advance for any help in re-posting this invitation to your own network of friends and anyone with an active interest in animal welfare.

Look forward to seeing you on Friday -- Eileen


Following the ongoing Labombard case, in which they have been found guilty of animal cruelty as a result of their puppy mill operation, you are invited to join us at the Hull Court House, 17 rue Laurier, Gatineau, QC., at 9:30 am on Friday, June 22nd, 2012 for a civil and peaceful demonstration against puppy mills.

Our objectives are to bring awareness to the public and educate people regarding the true nature of puppy mill operations, to promote adoption within rescue and shelter organizations when looking for a companion animal, and to let our government know that change is needed in our laws to prohibit commercial companion-animal breeding facilities.

Puppy Mill Awareness handout flyers will be available for distribution, and we encourage you to get creative in making sandwich boards, placards, etc. to reflect your personal message. Literature suggests that the text be factual, short and devoid of foul language. We expect the media's presence.

We suggest that you do not wear any clothing or advertising that would indicate an affiliation with any rescue or shelter organization - this demonstration is to allow you to share your own personal message.

See you there - and Thank you for your support!

Les Lalombard ont été jugées coupables de cruauté animale alors qu’elles opéraient une ferme d’élevage d’animaux domestiques. La cause sera de nouveau en cour le 22 juin 2012 pour la sentence. Nous vous invitons à vous joindre à nous alors que nous protesterons de façon pacifique l’existence des fermes d’élevage d’animaux domestiques devant le Palais de justice à Hull au 17 rue Laurier, Gatineau, Qc. à 9h30.

Nos objectifs : Sensibiliser le grand public et les informer de la vraie nature des fermes d’élevage d’animaux domestiques, promouvoir l’adoption d’animaux de compagnie via les refuges, les organisations de secours et pour informer le gouvernement que des changements doivent être apportés aux lois afin de banir les fermes d’élevage d’animaux domestiques.

Nous aurons aussi des brochures de sensibilisation à votre disposition à remettre au public pour les sensibiliser à la vraie nature des fermes d’élevage d’animaux domestiques, Nous vous suggérons aussi de préparer des affiches / placards créatifs, qui réflètent votre opinion personnelle. Dans les livres sur le sujet, on suggère que l’information soit factuelle, courte et d’éviter un langage qui pourrait être offensif.

La Presse devrait être présente.

On vous suggère aussi de ne pas porter de gaminet ou vêtement qui vous associerait à une organisation de secours, refuge ou sanctuaire. Cette manifestation a pour but de vous permettre de partager votre opinion personnelle. Au plaisir de vous voir et merci.
