WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE BC SPCA?
AAS spent five years investigating and documenting the things that people had been complaining of for fifty years and published them in this web site
. Twice the SPCA used expensive lawyers to try to silence us.
SEE THE EVIDENCE OF WHAT IS WRONG

SEIZE AND KILL! or RESCUE AND SAVE?
TWO CASES: A COMPARISON AND OUTCOME
CASE ONE: TOPAZ CREEK DOGS: RESCUED AND SAVED BY CRESTON PAWS SOCIETY
CASE TWO: BEAVERDELL DOGS: SEIZED AND KILLED BY THE KELOWNA  BC SPCA

Fifty some odd northern mixed-breed dogs tied to trees, neglected and desocialized for years. One group in Topaz Creek BC, one in Beaverdell BC. Two remarkably similar situations, handled by two remarkably different organizations with radically different strategies and outcomes. Scientists themselves couldn't have created two better control groups.

In Memory of my Dad, Ton Oor

 In Memory of my Dad, Ton Oor...  
 
A Dutch baker
Good Friend
Culinary Chef instructor
Animal rescuer
Good husband
Great father
Hard worker along with my Mom.
Accumulated a zoo of rescued bunnies and rescued dogs!
 
Other people collect stamps, but Ton and my Mom, Didi, rescued animal.  Two bunnies became 6 and the one dog that emigrated from Holland, became 3. They became regular visitors at the Wild Life Rescue centre with hurt birds and Meow Aid also received some feline rescues.
 
He picked up dead animals off the road, so they wouldnít get run over again and again. They threw them in the woods as other animal food, the recycling of the planet always in mind. He took action, not always legal, to relieve more animal suffering. My dad, together with my mom, were true animal lovers.   
 
Here are a few stories of my Dad and animals:
 
One early morning on his way home from his night shift, animal- lover Ton saw two rabbits hopping along the Barnet Hwy. Their friend had already been killed and was lying in the ditch. Ton caught the live ones and took them into his house. Little did he know that one rabbit was pregnant, so one rabbit soon became 8! They all lived happily ever after for nearly 7 years.
 
While on holidays in Vegas, Ton rescued a little 7-year-old terrier. The dog was being dumped at the pound by an old man whose wife had died. The man simply did not feel like taking care of his wifeís dog. The poor dog was shaking all over, as if she knew the man wanted to get rid of her. She became part of Tonís family and lived to be 15 or 16 years old.
 
Ton saw a big dog running back and forth along the Lougheed highway. The cars were swerving around him. Although the dog was in good condition, nobody claimed him after several ads in the newspaper and hanging up a notice at the SPCA. So yet another dog adopted Ton! To this day, Dibbes is still a big, loving part of the family.
On his daily drive to work Ton noticed a black lab living at the end of a chain.  The dog looked very sad and lifeless. It bothered Ton a lot and he decided to take action. On a dark winter evening Ton and a friend rescued the lab from his pitiful existence. They found a loving family to take care of the rescue and thatís where he lives to this day.
 
Through his animal lover network Ton discovered a neglected puppy in a backyard. Its home consisted of a fenced off section in the backyard with a pen. The floor of his pen was covered with big rocks not only difficult to clean, but hot in the summer. His owners would put out food and water in the morning, go to work and not check on him until the next morning. Sadly he was alone all day and in dire need of a playmate. Because he was so young and playful, he would entertain himself with his food and water bowl, knock them over and be without water all day. Lacking any attention, he cried all the time. Weekends were worse; he was left alone for 2 or 3 days at a time.
 
Animal lover Ton came to the rescue. With snacks in hand, they quickly became friends and Ton had no problem coaxing the dog away. Again he found him a good home, where he was really wanted.
 

   

Ton's compassionate action leaves a legacy of examples for all to follow.
