Coop contract

Interview with Hope Swinimer, recently awarded Halifax’s animal shelter contract.

Q. You’re planning two facilities — a pound in Burnside and a place specifically for seized animals that tend to wait longer periods while their fates are determined through the legal system. Why?

 A. I really feel strongly that no animal needs to be cooped up in a confined space in the city for long periods of time. These animals that are being held (for more than a couple of months), they deserve a beautiful setting, a comfortable setting where there is sunshine and fresh air and a nice environment for them so their quality of life can be very good for that waiting period before they go to court.
