Got this email and am just waiting for permission to use the person's name and then I will add it. I was alarmed at the number of cat owners in the West Island contacting us about missing cats.:(

"Every borough of the West-Island is serviced by the SPCA, a HUMANE society.

Did anyone actually make it to City Hall on Monday night? What was the outcome? Have not read anything in the paper about it. If this is true, how can it be allowed to continue? They want dog owners to pay for a license...for what???? To support this band or petknappers?

I would have loved to have gone but had a prior commitment that I could not get out of however, would love to know if the topic will ever come up again.

You can email Susan directly to find out the results.

And yes - dog licences for what? Just another tax grab, since I see no evidence that any of the monies go to benefit any animals in any way whatsoever.
