Halifax Regional Municipality will be holding an important vote tomorrow.
They will be deciding whether or not to grant $40,000.00 to the SPCA to help with the costs of upgrading the Burnside shelter. The SPCA is building a surgery suite so they can offer low cost spays and neuters to low income families and rescue groups. This would be a one-time investment that would have long-lasting benefits.
Unfortunately, city staff is recommending against this grant. They want council to delay the decision while they review the municipality’s granting policies. This would stall the process until at least September! This means another large batch of unwanted kittens will be born this spring and summer only to starve and/or freeze to death next winter. UNACCEPTABLE!
Stan needs your help! Please take a minute to email or phone your councillor to ask them to support “Alternative # 2” during tomorrow’s council meeting:
