From the DLCC:
Since last week, when the Banned Aid Coalition put out the plea for donations,55,600 has been raised.
This leaves a total of 54,400.00 yet to be raised.
The Government of Ontario has used every trick in the book to break the backs of the five organizations that signed on as equal partners in this legal case.
The Ontario government never figured on just how passionate we are about our dogs and our rights as Canadians.
We will never roll over and play dead. Our dogs do that.
For them we stand and we fight.
