Tuxedo Stan is upset with the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture over their refusal to fund the Provincial SPCA’s cruelty investigations.
Here’s a little background about the Nova Scotia SPCA.
The SPCA is expected to do all of it’s work through donations from the public. Unfortunately, donations are not keeping up with financial demands. They have asked the government for help so they can continue to investigate and prosecute animal cruelty cases. The executive director of the Provincial SPCA, Kristin Williams, was recently interviewed on CBC Radio’s Information Morning. To hear her interview click HERE.

The Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Roz Penfound, responded to Ms. Williams today. Sadly, the Deputy Minister says the government won’t be providing any financial support. To hear her interview click HERE.
Now maybe Tuxedo Stan is just a cat, but he can’t seem to understand why a society that is supposed to enforce provincial laws doesn’t receive any funding from the province. In fact, the SPCA would be able to do its job very efficiently for the amount of money Deputy Minister Penfield gets paid in a year. Hmm… maybe that’s the solution.
Citizens of Nova Scotia, please take a minute to write to your MLA, the Minister of Agriculture and Premier Dexter and request that the government reconsider its refusal to provide funding to the SPCA. The companion animals of Nova Scotia need your help.
Tell them Tuxedo Stan sent you.
