With over 10,800 Face Book followers, and my request to have his “Friends” submit their own pictures of their companions, the album continues to grow daily. 

Here is a collage of just some of his “Friends”.  You can be sure there will be more collages to come.

Many of these precious souls, if not 99% of them are rescues who have found loving forever homes with dedicated “Guardians”

The loss of a beloved companion leaves a massive emptiness, a whole in our hearts that we believe can never be filled.  Sometimes we as caregivers need our own Guardian Angels, sometimes it is our lost loved one that comes to us with their own plans for our future.  Bruce is a very dear friend, although we have never met face to face, we share a love and commitment for all animals and in that our journeys never cease.  

This is an amazing story of a lost loved one doing just that.  Bruce’s Guardian Angel made sure that the whole in his heart would be filled.

In Bruce’s own words  “And, every morning she goes to little Magnum’s urn on the dining room table and rubs her head on it – she knows,”

Dusti   Bruce MacDonald

SPECIAL UPDATE!!! “….hi remember me from last night…I’m Dusti in case you forgot….”


“Well you see…..the other day I was sitting alone in my kennel just thinking about stuff when much to my surprise my guardian angel came…….he sat on my shoulder and said ‘well Dusti, I’m supposed to be on the other side of the rainbow bridge but there’s something I have to do before I can go…….I left behind the most loving person any pet could ever wish for and I have left a big hole in his heart…one he feels will never mend and so I need you to help heal this wonderful generous heart because without his light in the world…it is a much dimmer place ‘…..and so the plan was set…..in all my shyness I was to come to facebook and my guardian angel would lead him to me…in all his sadness he hasn’t spent much time on facebook but my guardian said he would do his part so long as I did mine ……and it worked. I couldn’t believe my eyes…..it was real…..this wonderful person that I’d heard about around the shelter……everybody whispering and talking that this person was coming to see me……oh my heart was pounding but then ours eyes met and a calm came over me and it happened…..I was giving my heart to a very special person and he was giving me his………his name is Bruce McDonald and think most of you know him from all the blessings he gives each pet posted on this page……how did I get so lucky….I will love you for all my days Bruce……and thank you to my guardian Angel, Magnum…its time for you to play over the rainbow with all the other furbabies that have passed…..I will continue to fill Bruce’s heart and help him heal and I will be here…safe for the rest of my days with Bruce……I couldn’t have asked for more”

All of us wish “Dusti” and her ‘Bruce’ a wonderful and amazing journey in their new life together.

  We must also not forget to  offer a very special Thank You to a very precious Guardian Angel by the name of “Magnum”.

Below is the link and as Bruce has said, they do amazing and wonderful work for the animals.

There has been much by way of   emailing between parties with reference to the controversial No Kill Movement, and in addressing the issues and conversation that ensued, I have received permission from Ms. West to copy and paste her response in one of her communiques.    My own comments are made first and I agree wholeheartedly with Ms. West.

Bloggers Comments:

Over population is definitely NOT and animal problem.  It is in fact a HUMAN problem period!  Every single day, in every single town, city and province countless kittens and puppies are born and cats and dogs are either turned into shelters, are found abandoned and dumped.  Why, because educating the masses as well try to do, stressing the need for spay/neuter is being totally ignored by the ignorant, the money hungry and the irresponsible pet owners not only in Canada but elsewhere throughout the US and every country on the Globe.  It is a HUMAN problem.  We see it everyday, and we clean up the mess and horror left behind.

As far as the laws governing companion animals in this country, we all know how archaic and antiquated these laws are, yet each time a new Bill is brought before the House to improve the legislation and declassify animals as mere property, it is voted down by the current government in power.  Further, shelter funding for the most part is not subsidized by provincial or federal funding and often depends solely upon donations.  What municipally owned shelters there are, are dictated to by the municipal bureaucrats who dictate!!

Over burdened shelters, and especially No-Kill Shelters trying so desperately to find forever homes for those in need,  unlicensed back yard breeders, the human failures of spaying and neutering companion animals, the total lack of responsible pet owners and the failure of municipal, provincial and federal government to properly address the issues of inadequate veterinary services in many areas across Canada, the Federal Legislation, the lack of very real animal protection By-Laws within our communities, municipalities and not having enough qualified, fully educated Animal Cruelty Investigators within each SPCA, town, city, municipality and province/territory is also part of the problem.

We need the powers of Seizure to save distressed animals held in the confines of ongoing neglect, disregard and failures to provide the necessities of life.  Here in Canada, we need the powers that are given to SPCA’s within the US.  Here instead we must depend upon the local police forces for seizure and quite honestly folks they have enough on their hands and distressed and abused animals are the last of their concerns.

Major movements within this country and elsewhere, as Sarah has pointed out, must have one focus to be effective Any problem regarding animal welfare is NOT  a single faceted one The No Kill Solution is taking the shelters to task.  This is one of the problems we have with bad shelter management, lack of cooperation with rescues, not socializing dogs and the list goes on!

We have seen the scandals surrounding the OSPCA, my God my computer files are enormous on that particular issue alone.  Then you take into account the Whistler case, that massive slaughter was unnecessary and fueled only by greed and a failure to effectively monitor such operations. The subsequent investigation into the slaughter was too little too late, and the outcome of the judgement issued by the Courts for this mass murder was merely a slap on the wrist.

WE must, support each other.  WE must be united period.  WE must not criticize or judge that which is being done by any one group or organization in their fight to end cruelty to animals in this country or anywhere else period.  Dissention among the troops proves only to make the army very shaky and ineffective.  While one has the right to disagree, and I will defend that right, we all have one common goal and purpose..to save animals.  Since the Federal Government shows total disrespect and total disregard, often branding many of us as ‘terrorists’ if we speak out against the lack of very real Animal Protection, cutting off charitable status to organizations that openly oppose current ridiculous antiquated legislation and policies..we have only each other from which to draw strength and resources.

 

Ms. West writes:

Areas of Focus That must be Addressed Regarding Pet Overpopulation and Animal Cruelty

 

  1. Education and awareness both public the government courts police and the media ( Bonnie is working on this )
  2. Education and awareness both public the government courts police and the media that animals are sentient beings
  3. Education and awareness with regards to THE CAMBRIDGE DECLARATION ( that animals have the same consciousness as we do) yes we all know this but it’s NOT public knowledge and  certainly NOT known and recognized by the public courts government police and media
  4. Education and awareness via humane education in elementary schools ( I am working on getting certified as a humane educator ) for CFAWR
  5. Education and awareness with regards to the Animal Cruelty Syndrome ( for the public courts, government and media)
  6. Getting the TERM “ Companion Animal” listed in our dictionaries and  as  working on getting the use of this TERM in precedence setting legal cases
  7. Debunking the myth that shelter ect are somehow inferior or broken
  8. The destruction of whose who run puppy mills and back yard breeder
  9. Education and awareness regarding the necessity and positives if spaying and neutering
  10. Creating ways to make spaying and neutering ( more accessible and affordable ) for the public  Mobile vets  and subsidised procedures by the veterinary profession for low income citizens
  11. Legislation that bans the sale of puppies and kitten from pet stores ( Canada wide)
  12. Acceptability of TNR programmes by municipalities ( Canada wide)
  13.  Complete transparency and better shelter management by shelters and humane societies ( FOCUS for the NO KILL MOVEMENT) and Bill Bruce the Calgary Model Bonnie also working on this
  14.  Animals removed as property from the Canadian criminal code and PROPER Animal welfare legislation brought into Canada ( CFAWR is trying to work on this tiny step  by tiny step
  15.  Creating and establishing relationships with those MP’s trying to make changes to federal and provincial cruelty legislation ( Peggy Nash Mac Harb Mark Holland ect
  16.  Contraception for cats and dogs Alliance for Contraception in Cats and Dogs
  17. Cohesiveness, elimination of back biting and power struggles inherent in many animal welfare rescuers and groups ( animal advocacy underground)
  18. Animal advocacy volunteer training/ support regarding education speaking with media, animal care and networking for animals in need

 

If we have groups and movements taking on any of these’ issues of this multi-faceted program…. it is a good thing!   No one group can do it all and we cannot criticize each other if any one of us feel that something is fundamentally wrong with a specific group then don’t work with them  Keep doing what you are doing, but I feel other than that we must work together as Bonnie says.

 

Think about this list above.  This is a huge problem  almost beyond comprehension but we can neither be “ overwhelmed” or critical.  All efforts are helping and the No Kill movement may be doing some things you don’t like  but the fact that Nathan Winograd has started this is a good thing.  Many animals lives have been saved by his movement and that is a good thing regardless. I for one glad am he is on the ground fighting back with the No Kill Movement

All of us have to pick one focus and working on creating a dove- tail relationships with others who have a different  mandate and focus! It is out of “ combined” efforts that will and do make a difference for all the animals we care for so deeply.

 

We can’t change other countries but we can all come together to do what we can for Canada and her animals and creatures, wild, marine, stray ,farm and companion.

 

Sincerely

MAY 11, 2011 A TRAGIC DAY TO REMEMBER

 

More and more, public awareness of the outrageous, unforgivable treatment inflicted on the lives of innocent animals is proving to be a driving force for positive action.

One year ago today, a VIGIL, protesting the needless murder of 102 unlucky shelter animals held at the Newmarket, Ontario shelter was launched. Below are just a few of the many pictures taken during the 2011 VIGIL.

Today, May 11, 2012 marks the Second Anniversary and once again, dedicated, caring people are gathering to honor these lost lives taken due to indifference and apparent complacency on the part of the caregivers to which these precious lives were entrusted.

The fact that today’s MEMORIAL VIGIL is even taking place is evidence in itself, that SOMETHING HAS GOT TO CHANGE IN ONTARIO.  This incident SHOULD NEVER have happened in the first place!!!!!

In March 2009 a great deal of Hype was publicized about Ontario enacting the Strongest Animal Protection Law in Canada.  Congratulations to Ontario!!

  Note the sarcasm here!!!!

McGuinty Government Modernizes Animal Cruelty Laws

http://news.ontario.ca/mcscs/en/2008/11/stronger-protection-for-animals-in-ontario.html

“Today is an historic day for our province when it comes to animal protection. Ontario has passed legislation that will give us the strongest animal protection laws in Canada, and bring more abusers to justice.”

 – Rick Bartolucci
Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Service

Clearly obvious by the scandal and subsequent Inquiry launched by Mr. Klees resulting in the report finally being published: https://giftofloki.wordpress.com/2011/06/04/news-from-ontario-ospca-full-report-released-finally/

Excerpt: “The report said a couple of things which made my blood boil, one of them being 57 animals euthanized. Well we all know that is not true. From the very beginning in their attempt to make themselves look transparent to the public they itemized exactly where the 102 animals were, how many were in foster care and those that went to alternate clinics. So how do they get off saying there were only 57.  Please do not blame the investigators for that.”

A great deal must be done to improve the Ontario situation.  Thus far it is most questionable as to whether anything at all POSITIVE has been done to protect the lives of innocent animals in Ontario, whose sole crime was to be born. 

Many animals have AND CONTINUE TO FALL VICTIM to irresponsible and uncaring owners that allow continued breeding, failing to spay and neuter their pet, allowing them to roam freely and THUS  contribute to an ever expanding population of unwanted and discarded animals.

WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!

Much gratitude is due to ALL those who continue to fight, in Ontario, the injustices inflicted upon  animals in Ontario.  Gratitude must be given to those who REMEMBER and who continually REMIND us that WE are all RESPONSIBLE.  Reminding us too, that each and every one of us CAN DO something POSITIVE, to MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!  Special thanks to you for allowing me to use these pictures.

YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!

“Miracle of Life”

Come quick”, their mother said, “The time is getting near”;
She feels that when the kittens come the children should be here.
She told them that a big orange Tom took “Kitty” as his wife,
“It’s wonderful, a gift from God, the miracle of life”.

At half a year young “Kitty” feels too painful and too scared,
To appreciate six miracles, blind-eyed and yellow haired.
But she knows these lives depend on her and nature tells her how,
And as she cleans them, children ask “Mom, can we go now?”

But now and then, for six more weeks the children visit her,
To play with six new magic toys, made of life and fur.

The six weeks pass, the newness gone and new homes yet unfound,
Mom bundles up six miracles and takes them to the pound,
Where lovingly, with gentle hands and no tears left to cry,
The shelter workers kiss them once and take them off to die.

And “Momma Kitty”, now she’s called, mourns her loss and then,
She’s put outside, and of course, she’s pregnant once again.
Dad tells “Kitty” STOP THIS NOW or you won’t live here long!,
But deep inside of Momma Cat, this time something’s wrong.

Too young, too small, too often bred now nature’s gone awry,
Momma Kitty feels it too and she crawls off to die.
She too is freed from this cruel world, and from her time of strife.
How harsh the truth, how high the price, this “Miracle of Life”

The title of this post is a direct quote from a young gentleman charged with law enforcement and the protection of citizens and animals alike due to the position and responsibilities that position entails.

Rather says it all does it not??

Canada, the golden land of opportunity, welcoming with open arms all manner of newcomers, be they individuals looking to provide better lives for their families, or foreign investments looking to make a profit on the backs of our environment, our fresh water resources and our vast untapped mineral resources.    Welcome….

Sarcastic remark…yes admittedly.

Canada, a land where the exploitation, suffering and lack of proper Federal Legislation, allows for horrendous Factory Farms, the continued unabated suffering in puppy mills, kitten mills, horse slaughter, the failure to protect domestic animals, strays, ferals..my gosh you name it…

Every year the Animal Legal Defense Fund issues it’s annual report naming the Best and the Worst places for an animal to live, based on the Provincial/Territorial Animal Protection Legislation in place.  It would be safe to possibly conclude that reported cases of animal cruelty, the consequences faced by the perpetrator of such horrors and the overall outcome of Judicial proceedings may/may not also be taken into account.  Afterall, as I have stated far too often to count…laws are not worth the paper they are written upon if they are not stringently enforced and justice for the animal victims is obtained.

Note that you may download your own copy of the ALDF Report by visiting their site, it is a one time free download which is updated yearly.

Here’s the full ranking list: as of the report issued in 2010 and 2011.  You will note that very little has changed.  The NWT and Nunavut were tied as the Best Place to Abuse Animals in 2010.  However with the victorious three year battle for animal protection in the NWT, seeing the new NWT Dog Act come into effect in May 2011 (still only pertains to dogs) the NWT moved from Worst to now rank No. 11 in the Bottom Tier.  Nunavut is now the Best Place to Abuse Animals and Alberta and Quebec also have remained stagnant in the Bottom Tier.

Quebec has moved down a notch ranking at number 11 now.  Congrats to Quebec….which brings us to the issue of Berger Blanc in Montreal.

For years Montrealers have been loudly protesting the horrific cruelty that animals are subjected to thanks to Berger Blanc.  Are they being listened to??  Obviously not at all.  The horrors continue without consequence.

Just what will it take to SHUT DOWN Berger Blanc????????  What will it take for the taxpayed politicians in Montreal who hold their positions/jobs and lifestyles to come clean and do the right thing and meet the demands of the Montrealers to shut this operation of gross horrors down?????

Will it take International Scrutiny?  Will it take the shining light of NEGATIVITY, the Public Humiliation and the Pointing of Global Fingers and Protest before the powers that be in Montreal do something?????  It certainly seems that way.  Will it take the NEGATIVE effect such publicity can have on needed TOURISM, and subsequent retail and hospitality industry losses before the Powers that BE wake up and ‘get it’???

Unfortunately that is exactly what it sometimes takes.  The NEGATIVE spotlight that shone so brightly on the NWT (Northwest Territories) for over three years drew Global as well as North American attention.  Emails, comments, loud voices from around the world played a very large part in bringing about much needed positive change here.  The support from large Canadian Animal Advocate Groups, that took a stance, submitted their own letters and critiques to the Territorial Government in support of the Legislative changes, the documented and pictorial evidence which I prepared and submitted on a regular basis, the countless study papers on the LINK between Animal Cruelty and Human Violence which I also submitted and the needed support from NWT residents….all of it played a huge role in winning, for the first time in NWT history, protection for dogs up here.

So if the same must be done to enable the caring, responsible pet lovers and owners in Montreal to be heard…to have For Profit Berger Blanc……scrutinized and pointed at by Global fingers…..if it must take a Global protest to end the horrors these innocent animals endure at the hands of Berger Blanc…….then So Be It.

Berger Blanc is a shining example of inadequate Provincial Legislation to Protect Animals.  Berger Blanc is a perfect example of the archaic, inadequate Canadian Federal Animal Protection Legislation that permeates this country and allows such operations to exist.

In a joint effort with Quebec contacts, more information concerning this appalling, disgusting, intolerable, inhumane, irresponsible, unacceptable situation will be exposed on a grand scale to the International/Global community.

UNITED we made a positive difference in the Northwest Territories, UNITED we can make a positive difference in Montreal and Quebec period!!

A year since Berger Blanc Cruelty

http://www.examiner.com/article/a-year-since-berger-blanc-cruelty

Montreal Animal Advocacy Examiner
Berger Blanc events — 19 April 2011

“On Thursday April 21 at 20:00 Radio Canada’s investigative program Enquête presents a disturbing exposé of Berger Blanc, the for-profit business entrusted with control of, and care for, Montréal’s exploding population of unwanted companion animals, a population which has now reached crisis proportions. This program, Mauvais Berger, exposes Berger Blanc’s abysmal standards of animal care and customer service, and lack of promotion of responsible pet ownership.

The images and issues addressed in Mauvais Berger invite a wider consideration of how this for-profit business, unrestrained by weak municipal by-laws, inadequate provincial legislation or effective monitoring, thrives on an ever-expanding supply of abandoned animals. Berger Blancs’ disregard of this fundamental problem of overpopulation ensures a constant flow of ‘clients’, and hence its own financial advancement.

Further, a lack of insistence on rigorous contractual accountability by the municipalities who deal with Berger Blanc aggravates this disgraceful situation. Neither the treatment and ultimate fate of the more than 30,000 animals transiting annually through the Berger Blanc (with sky-high euthanasia rates), nor the exact use of taxpayers’ cash, appear to be of significant concern for any of those associated with this scandalous enterprise.”
