Reporting humane animal transport concerns

The transport of animals is regulated to prevent injury or suffering of all animals. All those involved in transporting or causing animals to be transported, must ensure that every animal being loaded is fit for the trip and treated humanely.

If you see something, say something

If you believe you have witnessed someone who is not following the regulations regarding loading, transporting and unloading animals (such as rough handling, inadequate weather protection, or overcrowding), do the following:

  • gather as many details as possible (for example, date, time, location, license plate number)
    • report this information to the CFIA as soon as possible by contacting your local CFIA office
