Bill 132 within DOLA was brought into effect in 2005, and within this Bill pit bull's are listed as a restricted breed to own in Ontario. However, recently Doug Ford’s government has eased regulations related to the province’s pit bull ban, allowing seized dogs that look like the prohibited breed to be released to their owners while formal breed determination is being conducted.
Although whoever meets Chip falls in love with her fun and playful personality, she will need to be transferred to a province within Canada that does not enforce this specific breed ban. The cost of Chip's care and transportation is significantly higher than the average pet who visits HSLM and we need your help to send her off on the right paw.
The HSLM team is hard at work organizing the details for Chip's transfer out of province. Together we can ensure that Chip finds her forever family in a place where she will not be judged by her breed.
HSLM is not funded by the government so we are asking you to please consider making a donation to help cover the cost of care and transportation for Chip and other pets like her.
With your help we will give Chip hope for the holidays!
