Shelters in Quebec are bracing for the annual influx of animals left behind during the province's "moving day," but advocates are hopeful the government might finally consider ditching no-pet clauses. Anita Kapuscinska of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals' Montreal branch says they hope the government might consider eliminating the clause as it weighs new animal welfare rules. Kapuscinska says the shelter receives up to 16-hundred pets a month during peak moving months. (Quebec introduced a bill earlier this year that, if passed, would see the status of animals upgraded from "movable property" to "sentient beings" and advocates will recommend an amendment nixing no-pet clauses during consultations later this year.)
