There are many, many people who cannot understand the judge's decision in this case, but more than words, Lorie needs our financial support in order to appeal and only has a short time to do so. Please consider helping with a small donation by contacting her lawyer, Terry Green at Green and Vespry Lawyers in Ottawa ( Gordon Appeal In Trust). She needs our support - it has been a long, drawn-out, process and we cannot just accept this ruling without taking it to the end. Please help Lorie in her ongoing fight to bring justice to puppy mill dogs.

The federal government can strengthen the animal cruelty act but not provincial animal welfare laws - and that is why the SPCA in Quebec is helpless to shut down puppy mills, unless they can prove "wilful cruelty". AnimaQuebec is mandated to enforce the Quebec animal protection act, but has publicly stated that their mission is to educate and inform, not prosecute.

Lorie found out the hard way about purchasing dogs from a puppy mill and originally posted on the Pets.ca forum to find out if more people had similar experiences. She was flooded with reports from people who had bought sick dogs and the conditions they were living in. What she stated on line was the truth, backed up by evidence.

Lorie held the torch for many years, never giving up on her mission to help end the suffering of puppy mill dogs. She now needs our support to appeal the judge's ruling in this very important case.
