The D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation wants the press to be aware that on Sunday, February 13th there will be a walk at Edworthy Park in Calgary at 2:00 pm in honor of the 100 sled dogs that were murdered.
At 6:00 pm there will be a candlelight vigil in Innisfail, AB behind the aquatic centre at the ball diamond also in honor of the sled dogs. We would like to see a good turnout by the public as we need to send a message of awareness.
Better monitoring of these sled dog venture companies is a must in order to ensure proper treatment of these wonderful sentient beings. The general public is outraged about this incident but they are unaware of how many sled dogs are really put down in any given year in this country. Once there is no more need for a dog, the dog is murdered.
Once again the D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation wants to thank you, the media, for making the public aware.
