Islanders’ opinions wanted on animal welfare

An online survey launched today is asking Islanders to have their say about animal welfare and animal protection laws on Prince Edward Island.

The Animal Welfare in PEI survey asks Islanders to share their views with the provincial government. Surveys take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete.

Agriculture and Land Minister Bloyce Thompson said animal welfare is an important issue for many Islanders.

 “Whether we are talking about the companion animals in our homes or animals being raised on Island farms, our goal is to see all animals well cared for, throughout their lives,” said the minister.

“This survey will help us identify the concerns of the Island public when it comes to animal welfare. Your responses will help the Department to identify any gaps in animal welfare laws and policies in PEI.”

The survey will close on February 15, 2021.
