Please sign this very important petition to change the legal status of our companion animals, and pass it along to your contacts. Deadline is March 12th, 2013! THE PETITION IS HERE :
English Translation :
WHEREAS, in the province of Quebec, pets plays an increasingly important role in our society;
WHEREAS the Quebec Civil Code does not consider animals as living beings but as movable propertly;
WHEREAS man has a moral obligation to respect all living creatures, and that we must keep in mind the special relationship between humans and pets;
WHEREAS pets live in our homes, and in so doing, contribute to the quality of life of our society;
WHEREAS animals are sentient beings, who experience hunger, pain, and suffering;
We Quebecers ask that the Quebec Civil Code be amended so that the companion animal has a legal status which recognizes their right to life.
