Citizen Canine Companion (CCC)

Citizen Canine Companion (CCC) For the love of the dog is the not for profit society, that promotes the importance of dogs in our lives. The human/canine bond.

It focuses on the importance of dogs for our well being.

Dogs, we brought them into our world centuries ago.
We owe them protection. We have taken them as part of our life. Many people find that sharing their life with a dog adds so much to their quality of life. They read our moods, their love is without question.

Our focus is to improve the acceptance of dogs in our society, and to help more people become aware of their importance, in how much they add to our lives., our wellbeing.

Through its efforts it aims also to prevent cruelty to animals, and help find homes for dogs in need of homes.

It was founded in and is home based in New Westminster British Columbia.

It was started in April 2016 by Margaret Halsey.

Dogs of 6th and Devoy

This project is now complete. $1500 in net proceeds from this fence was donated to BC and Alberta Guide Dogs, and 400 to other local dog related societies and charities. For a $50 dollar (or as much as you want to) donation, your dog can be painted on the fence, if you live in the New Westminster area surrounding the fence. Having your dog’s face on the fence will bring a smile to those that pass by, and will help promote the importance dogs play in society. Many people may not be aware of the huge benefit dogs add to our lives.


Cherry Lane Project

Cherry Lane Canines and cats has been a labour of love. The love of the dog, and the cat. I am the artist Margaret Halsey. this is the second fence project.  There are over 100 faces on the two fences. It has been for the love of the dog and cat and to promote awareness to their importance ( the mission of Citizen Canine Companion). It is doing that every day people walk by.
