The Hamilton/Burlington SPCA is a private not-for-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals, the rescue and adoption of homeless pets, providing support to keep pets in loving homes, and the development of respect, compassion and empathy for every living creature.
The Hamilton/Burlington SPCA will be the community leader in animal welfare - more specifically - animal protection, advocacy, adoption, and education.
We will be a recognized asset to our community and will contribute leadership within the animal welfare movement at the community, provincial and national levels.
We value a society where all life is cherished and respected. We value the bond of trust and love between humans and animals.
We value the necessity to educate our children, our youth and our citizens to respect all living creatures.
We value strong legislation protecting animals from cruelty and exploitation.
We value courage, commitment and passion in those working to make the world a better place for all animals.
I guess they "adopt and rescue homeless animals" as long as they don't compete with them?
"Empathy for every living creature?"
"We value a society where all life is cherished and respected" (Really??)
I want to see this non-compete agreement - really badly. Because this mission, vision and values statement is a joke.
