New animal welfare group unveiled | Simcoe Reformer

A new animal welfare association in Ontario was unveiled in Hagersville Monday night.

Animal Welfare Watch was formed in response to an outpouring of concern last month for the living conditions of three horses at a hobby farm in Townsend Centre east of Waterford.

The driving force behind AWW is Brenda Thompson, operator of the Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue in Hagersville, and Michael Zimmerman, a former provincial bureaucrat who was the animal welfare co-ordinator for the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
