The Windsor/ Essex County Humane Society says that they will continue to protect animals at risk over the next six months while the Ontario Government develops a new animal welfare act.

The Ontario SPCA will not be enforcing the cruelty provisions in provincial legislation after June 28th.

To ensure that no animal falls through the cracks, the Ontario Government announced Friday that willing humane societies and their protection officers will continue to enforce the law while the Province develops a new animal welfare model.

“Our organization looks forward to working with others to create a new animal welfare and law enforcement structure in Ontario that will be a model for other jurisdictions, and in the meantime, we welcome the opportunity to continue our current animal welfare enforcement work,” the Humane Society said in a news release.

In 2018, the Windsor/ Essex County Humane Society Protection Team investigated 838 complaints about animals in distress.

If you see an animal in distress or at risk, you are asked to call the Humane Society at 519-966-5751.
