Position Statements

Position Statements represent the views of Central Alberta Humane Society on various issues that impact animals. The purpose of the Position Statements is to provide clarity regarding the views of the Society on such issues, and to educate animal guardians and policy makers to improve the welfare of all animals. As only the Alberta SPCA can legally enforce provisions outlined in animal cruelty legislation in our Province, the Society has no legal authority to enforce these Position Statements.
