Never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

We are a group of concerned Halifax citizens dedicated to fair and humane animal control policy and humane animal welfare practices within the Halifax Regional Municipal system.

As a grassroots organization, our goal is to secure truly humane treatment of animals in the Halifax Regional Municipality, following a set of short-term and long-term objectives to bring about better animal control laws, regulations, and procedures.

Halifax's "By-Law A300 Respecting Animals" is in dire need of revisions. We are willing and able to contribute to the process of improving this by-law so that it complies with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and all federal and provincial laws that insure public safety and prevent cruelty to animals, in the interest of fair and equitable law enforcement. This means balancing the rights of pet owners, public safety, and the needs of companion animals.

Please JOIN US in our goal of a more humane Halifax for all!


"Our group, Humane Halifax, is concerned among other things with the welfare of animals in the care of Halifax Regional Municipality. It's come to our attention that the Wyndenfog Instructional and Kennel Services has been operating without a business license for two years."

"According to the Registry, the province revoked Wyndenfog’s license for non-payment on Sept. 7, 2010. On reporting this to Service Nova Scotia, we learned that under provincial law, businesses are subject to a fine of $50 a day for every day they operate without a license, and we were instructed to provide you with this letter."

Did you know the public record clearly shows #Halifax targeted #Brindi AHEAD of that harmless incident in July 2008? How? By gratuitously issuing a muzzle order and using it as a death warrant.
