article imageAnimal rights rally calls for changes to laws Special

By Paula Kirman     Apr 28, 2014 in World
Edmonton - Hundreds of animal lovers gathered at the Alberta Legislature on April 27 to call for changes to Canada's anti-cruelty laws.
Dubbed "Charlee's Angels for the Animals," the rally was organized by Charlee Morgan, a local media personality. Speakers included various people involved in animal cruelty law enforcement, politics, as well as representatives from animal rescue organizations.
The purpose of the rally was to call for changes to Canada's anti-cruelty laws, which protesters say are outdated because animals are still treated as property and penalties are not severe enough.
Many of those in attendance brought their dogs with them. Rescue organizations also brought some of their success stories. One rescue who garnered a lot of attention was Shania, a dog who was shot and left to suffer for a month before being rescued by the Infinite Woofs Society. While being treated for her wounds, it was discovered that Shania was pregnant. All eight of her puppies were with Shania at the rally, as well as her new owner.
