Take Action Preventing Barn Fires

6500 Goal

Yes, we should work to prevent animals dying in barn fires.

More than half a million animals have died in barn fires in Canada since 2015. That's an average of 100,000 animals, burned alive, every year... something needs to be done! Right now the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes is revising the fire protection requirements for farm buildings. They informed the BC SPCA that there is 'no strong interest in making protection of livestock a code objective.' Please sign here and we will add your name to an official request to government officials to show them the amount of people that are concerned about the lack of protections for animal life in new barn code standards. Thank you for showing you care about farm animals! Barn on fire
