Help keep these therapy animals where they belong!!

This petition had 290 supporters

I recently encountered a very troubling news story of which was aired on the Global News Channel. The story was about a woman who, after suffering multiple tragedies throughout her childhood; recently discovered a source of comfort and solace. Her sources of comfort were chickens that were gifted to her by a friend. At the time of their arrival, nobody in the woman’s community complained of noise, odors, or unruly animals. That is until someone came forward to a Calgary ByLaw Officer and informed the city that there were livestock being held within the city limits. This woman (as well as these animals) have done absolutely nothing to deserve this. As a fellow assault survivor, it is appauling to see this happen. This woman has a second chance at a good life, and the city is now taking steps to take this opportunity to heal away from her.

If we can get enough signatures together, I will be able to bring this to City Council and hopefully persuade them into keeping these harmless therapy animals where they belong... in the arms of the woman who needs them. But if this petition doesn’t work, these chickens will be removed and the quality of life for this woman decrease significantly. If we can get City Council to agree to allowing a trio of chickens to help someone, imagine what we could accomplish for other people who have found healing in animals that “don’t fit the norm.”
