Resources for people wanting to help chained dogs:

It is very difficult to drive past dogs in your neighbourhood and see them chained out all the time, but there are things that you can do to help the dog.


If you think the dog is in distress - ie the dog does not have access to food, water or shelter - then the Nova Scotia SPCA should be contacted - because the dog's owners are breaking the law - the NS SPCA follows the NS Animal Protection Act - and distress is mentioned 26 times, so it's a pretty important concept.  You can contact the SPCA through their website at http://www.spcans.ca/animal-cruelty.html


If it seems like nothing is happening - we can't stress this enough - contact the NS SPCA again, sometimes it takes multiple calls for anything to happen - eventually they will go visit the dog and if he is in distress the dog will be seized.


If you can see that the dog does have access to food water and shelter but you think that he's still chained out 24 hours a day - there are still some things that you can do to help the dog - and the dog's owner to let them know that they are now breaking the law in Nova Scotia -


1. If you feel comfortable you can approach the owners and let them know that the laws have recently changed in Nova Scotia and they now have to take their dogs inside every 12 hours for at least 7 hours,

2. You can offer to help with the dog - take him for walks, if they are agreeable - help to find him a new home. You can go to our links section to find rescue organizations that might be able to help you find the dog a new home.

3. You can contact us and we will send them information that talks about the new legislation and ways to help bring their dog inside - email us at nochainsalllove@gmail.com
