"DOLLARS FOR DOGS" 11th-HOUR COUNTDOWN TO JAN 31
RAISED $50,977 SO FAR…WITH…$16,023 TO GO…12 DAYS LEFT!
11th hour contributions show Canada-wide, dog-owner support as the Banned Aid Coalition seeks to raise immediate funds to pay outstanding legal fees and secure their day with the SUPREME COURT of Canada. The constitutional challenge of Ontario Bill 132, the “pit bull” ban, has not ended yet and is beginning to take its toll on the dedicated individuals so deeply involved.
Before close of business January 31, they must secure $67,000 or…it’s over and the door for breed specific legislation in this country will have been forever opened.
“It would be a travesty,” said Banned Aid Treasurer, Cathy Prothro “that after going so far with so much work from so many people, we couldn’t raise the money to secure our next steps to the Supreme Court of Canada.”
Having raised and paid $650,000 to date, Banned Aid, through the “Dollars for Dogs” campaign, looks to all dog owners as their front-line contributors and now as their last hope for rescue.
“Dollars for Dogs” encourages each and every dog owner to simply contribute $1.00…just one dollar for every dog you own. “Dollars for Dogs” hit the cyber world Saturday, January 11 as a last resort effort and it might just pay off.
The concept has taken flight and as of this post time, $50,977 has been contributed, with 12 days to go! Daily updates and contribution totals will be posted right here on the CKC website so you can see your efforts grow until the $67,000 goal has been reached or…time has run out.

If the Supreme Court hearing does not happen, then the door of breed specific legislation will be forever open. Help close the door.
