PA Puppy Mill Bill – Senate going off course plus Oprah show update TODAY

Posted by smallspark on September 25, 2008

The Senate today made amendments and is (more or less) nullifying MAJOR parts of the PA HB2525 bill the House passed with flying colors. PLEASE don’t let them.

They are almost out of session and about to get very busy. PLEASE go to www.savingPuppies.com and let them know you DO consider this important.

The House got a lot of pressure and knows we care. The Senate hasn’t had as much exposure to people’s opinions. Let’s make them aware their constituents care, and have an opinion, please. And that we VOTE.

And OPRAH is back on the subject and she is having another puppy mill show on Sept 25th.
TODAY!! 🙂

Watch the show and understand what the fuss is all about on this issue.

Please pass this on.

PA Puppy Mill Legislation HB 2525 is on the floor June 24th!

Posted by smallspark on June 22, 2008

If you’ve seen the Oprah show on this subject, maybe you understand how important, though minor, this law will be for those constantly pregnant animals forced to live their ENTIRE life in an open, small, wire-floored cage outside with no vet care. The endless rounds of puppies go to stores while Mama suffers.

“Among other essential changes, this bill would double the cage space required for dogs, mandate regular veterinary care, prohibit the stacking of cages, ban wire cage flooring and require that dogs have continuous access to clean water.”

“Passage of HB 2525 is vital if Pennsylvania is to improve conditions for dogs kept in commercial kennels and put an end to the state’s reputation as the “Puppy Mill Capital of the East.”
