Liberation Lockdown Court Fees!

During early of 2019, Albertan animal rights whistleblowers found approximately 500 dogs chained at dog sledding kennels owned by Mad Dogs & Howling Dogs tours, based outside of Canmore. Extremely disturbing and inhumane conditions sparked a fire within the local animal rights communities that could not be tamed. After several attempts to help the dogs through contacting the local SPCA, we worked in collaboration with other groups across the country to launch a national campaign against the hidden cruelties of the dog sled industry as never seen before.

On November 16th, 2019, 30 nonviolent animal rights activists attended at the property to document the conditions and demand that registered media be allowed to film the property with us. Activists found dogs eating rocks, dogs with open sores, dogs with missing eyes, puppies housed in puppy-mill equivalent crates, dogs demonstrating clear signs of extreme psychological stress, and hundreds of dogs chained to 5 foot tethers for extended periods of time.

44905284_1579574279263194_r.jpegOut of the group, 15 activists were arrested and charged with break and enter to commit mischief. We believe that our only intention while attending the premises was to expose animal cruelty and that should not result in a criminal charge. The 15 arrestees hope to utilize their case to encourage the progression of animal rights and expose inhumane conditions, along with encouraging a continuation of pressure and attention against the exposed companies.

This will be costly, which is why we are asking for your help. Please consider supporting us in our fight for liberating these dogs. Every dollar counts!
