Subject: Help Needed ASAP on Spay & Neuter Bill 4/6-10

Help needed this weekend and Monday & Tuesday for a monumental California bill that will require mandatory spay/neuter for dogs and cats herunterladen. AB 1634 -The California Healthy Pets Act – will make California’s companion animals healthier, communities safer and save taxpayer money skype download kostenlos für windows 10. Read on to see how you can help!

Help the Mandatory Spay/Neuter of Dogs and Cats in California

The California Healthy Pets Act (AB 1634) would require the spaying and neutering of most cats and dogs by the time the pet is four months old media reports that can be downloaded from the internet. It is authored and was introduced by Assemblymember Lloyd Levine.

Every year, over 800,000 pets are abandoned in California. Aggressive stray dogs roam through many neighborhoods, increasing the danger of dog bites and the transmission of rabies outlook 2007 herunterladen kostenlos. And taxpayers spend $250 million to house abandoned cats and dogs in shelters and then sadly, euthanize (kill) the majority of these pets.

There is a proven approach to solve this problem: mandatory spay/neuter laws downloaden website. With the wide availability of free and low-cost spay/neuter services, mandatory spay/neuter laws do not pose a financial burden for pet owners. It’s a common sense solution to the growing problem of pet overpopulation herunterladen.

THREE THINGS YOU CAN DO:

1. Attend the rally/press conference and hearing in Sacramento!

Supporters are needed at the Capitol on Monday, April 9th for a rallly/press conference at 2pm (west side Capitol steps) and at the Business and Professions Committee hearing at 9am on Tuesday, April 10th (room 447). Get all the details here.

The breeders are motivated — they are faxing and will show up. Our side must do the same and we must outnumber them!

2. Call the Business and Professions Committee!

This is vital – the bill sits in the hands of Mike Eng and the Co-Chair, Bill Emmerson. Please call them and urge their support. If you know shelters, rescues, politicians, veterinarians or any influential people, please ask them to call also.

3. LA Residents: Help this Weekend on Important Project!

The goal: every person who is going to be in Sacramento Monday for the rally/press conference to be wearing a T-shirt with the image of a different dog and cat that died in a California shelter. Decision makers and the press need to see the faces of those that die because of their unwillingness to take this issue seriously.

The League of Humane Voters has purchased 200 T-shirts which say “This animal was destroyed at taxpayer’s expense.” Volunteers are needed to print out pictures onto special transfer paper and iron them onto the T-shirts on Saturday, April 7th. Can you help? Please call Lisa, LCA’s Campaign’s Director, at (818) 681-3672 ASAP for more information.

This is a giant undertaking, but it can – and must – be done. If you can’t attend the rally, this is a great project to help out on!
