We are investing in animal welfare to make change happen in this generation!
Women for Humane Canada™ believes in the power of making change happen for animals. That is why we are joining forces with like-minded women across Canada – women who are thought leaders in animal welfare and willing to invest in change. We need to improve the laws, improve enforcement and elevate public thinking about the role of animals in society.
Did you know that the welfare of animals has a direct link to the welfare of women and children?
Did you know that violence against animals is a societal issue linked to violence against women and children?
In fact, animal abuse is an early indicator of potential child and woman abuse. If we can effectively prosecute animal neglect and cruelty, we may also succeed at preventing future human tragedies. We need to get at these core issues as a society in order to make real change happen and create a better Canada for all of us.
Why Women for Humane Canada™?
You may not know that, across Canada, women fill more than 70% of the leadership positions in animal welfare organizations, and they represent the largest group of donors.
We know what we want to achieve, but we need bigger thinking and bolder ambitions to get animal welfare on the national agenda. We are committed to investing in this future by developing Canadian animal welfare indicators, which will measure progress on issues of concern in Canada. These will help to determine current welfare gaps and guide our goal of creating a life worth living for all animals.
Join Women for Humane Canada™ as we come together to share thinking, invest our time and talent, build financial resources and make a real impact in the lives of animals starting today.
