bylaws

PLEASE HELP THE RESIDENTS OF CITY OF SURREY

On September 16th, City Council members will be holding a
Public Hearing regarding a complete ban of sale of exotic animals (reptiles).

This Bylaw should be voted down because it discriminates
against responsible pet owners and legitimate domestic
breeding and pet business residing in Surrey.

If passed, the next step could be the complete ban on ownership as well.
Some members of Council have expressed this opinion already.

We ask Council to consult more with pet owners and the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council
whose membership includes other Cities, Humane Societies,
individuals, veterinarians, pet owners, pet stores and their suppliers.

Many Lower Mainland Councils have passed responsible exotic animal bylaws which make sense.
We are in favor of a responsible exotic animal bylaw. Surrey Council should do the same.

Attend the public hearing on September 16th, Surrey City Council Chambers
at 6:30 pm - Surrey Council - Voice your opposition to the proposed bylaw.

If you cannot attend, write the Mayor and Council - let them
know you oppose the proposed bylaw - amend it!
