Peterborough Humane Society (PHS), in continuing with a commitment made to give each and every animal that comes into their care the best possible future, has established a new partnership with the Halifax Humane Society in Nova Scotia to find new homes for two pit bulls that have recently come into their care.
Pit bulls are a breed of dog that are banned in Ontario, and both of the dogs that have been transported fell under the Bill 132 of the Dog Owners Liability Act.
This transport with their new East Coast partner was made possible by the efforts of Officer Darryl Porter—a member of the PHS animal control team—as well as a PHS valued volunteer who travelled to Nova Scotia to deliver the dogs.

"By facilitating transport of these animals, it gives them the opportunity to live without restriction of breed, and enjoy life with new loving and caring homes," says Officer Porter. "I am proud to be a part of transport, and glad to see these beautiful dogs enjoy their new start.”

“I am excited to see this great new partnership with Halifax Humane Society come to light, as it continues our focus of collaboration with our animal welfare affiliates from coast to coast," says PHS Executive Director Shawn Morey.
"We are very happy to have so many great partnerships established, and continue to develop opportunities to further expand our affiliations, both locally and abroad. Our mission is to provide care and compassion to every animal that requires our services," adds Morey.
