"We are marching in memory of our pets that have lost their lives, we are marching in memory of those pets that are fighting for their lives, we march as pet owners, dog lovers, cat lovers and average citizens that are tired of the lowered safety standards for goods coming in to this country."

Check out their awesome site and get involved. If you live in/near one of the Canadian march sites, contact the local coordinator to help out and march. Perhaps you/your local group could hold a march.

Our tears are not enough....we have to act to get change.

"The March is a direct response from people all over the country and Canada who felt an overwhelming need to speak in outrage over the lack of safety standards in regard to pet food and the corporate negligence in allowing the food to remain on the shelves prior to the recall...

We are simply giving a voice to sadness and pain, to frustration and outrage. People need that and our pets deserve that. Hopefully, that voice will result in better days for pets and owners alike."

"The long-range objective is a network of committed pet owners who will keep pressure on lawmakers and government agencies to make sure tainted ingredients never again make their way into the food supply."

I agree that it's an outrage that not only was the petfood tainted, but they are still selling the stuff! If a march can help ...

What is strange is that there is no such outrage about bad peoplefood and chemical additives, chemical drugs etc. that kill or diable people.

Guess we value our pets more ;)

Aside from the tragedy of thousands of animals who died,the simple fact ANY country deals with China for petfood additives makes me sick!!
China has no rules and regulations regarding pesticide use,we do,but what's the use,if to save money companies are dealing with China!!
We here in Canada have no government inspection agencies when it comes to pet-food,in the US you have FDA,but much good it did to all the suffering and dying animals.It's simply sickening:evil:
