U.S. Congress Gives Pet Safety and Protection Act a Green Light

December 14, 2007

Dear Humanitarian:

Our companion animals may soon be safe from thieves who make easy money by obtaining them illegally, then selling them for experimentation cod bo3. The U.S. Congress is poised to adopt the Pet Safety and Protection Act (PSPA), also known as “Buck’s Bill.” The legislation is named after Buck, pictured at left, a dog who was rescued from notorious animal dealer C.C. Baird – the subject of the HBO special “Dealing Dogs.” Sadly, because of a lack of much needed veterinary care, Buck died. Though he was rescued, he could not survive the ravages previously inflicted by heartworms.

Buck’s Bill would prevent Class B dealers and unlicensed individuals from selling “random source” dogs and cats to laboratories. As we enter what we hope is the home stretch, we need your help to ensure success.

The House of Representatives passed the PSPA in July as part of the FARM Bill, and it has already been accepted as an amendment to the Senate FARM Bill videos von amazon prime herunterladen. We anticipate passage of the Senate version of the FARM Bill today or next week. Next, House and Senate Agriculture Committee Members will go to conference to iron out any differences in the language of their respective bills. This final stage of the process is expected to take place in mid-January 2008.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Anti-animal welfare members on the conference committee may seek to eliminate or weaken the PSPA. It is essential that all conferees be encouraged to support the House version in the FARM bill, as the Senate version includes a 5-year phase-in period, as well as potentially problematic ambiguous language.

Please contact as many conferees as you can, making those who represent your district or state a priority. (A list of conferees and their phone and fax numbers and mailing addresses can be found by clicking here: HouseSenate.)

Please contact the conferees as soon as possible zeitschriften kostenlos herunterladen.

1. You can send letters by the U.S. Postal Service, but please send them immediately to ensure they are cleared through security and delivered to the Congressional offices as soon as possible.

2. You also can fax your letters to the offices. Please be sure they are sent by mid-January.

3. Another option is to call conferees once they return on Monday, January 14th.

When contacting legislators, please mention:

* Adoption of the PSPA will prevent illegally acquired dogs and cats from being sold by random source, Class B dealers for research.
* You appreciate that both chambers of Congress have attached the PSPA to their versions of the FARM Bill.
* You respectfully request that he or she support the House version of the PSPA and hope that this will be reported out of conference mac os without app store.

You may also wish to request that a written response be sent to you, as both a way to formally acknowledge your call and to confirm the stated position on this issue.

Please share our “Dear Humanitarian” letter with family, friends and co-workers, and encourage them to contact their Members of Congress, too. As always, thank you very much for your help. Happy Holidays and best wishes for the New Year (including adoption of this measure!).

Sincerely,
Cathy Liss

“The Senate passing the Farm Bill with the PSPA attached is terrific news for companion animals and LCA. We have been investigating and busting Class B dealers for over 20 years. This legislation is greatly needed. Last year, HBO released ‘Dealing Dogs,’ LCA’s undercover investigation into pet theft and subsequent bust of the nation’s most notorious Class B dealer, C.C. Baird. ‘Dealing Dogs’ was seen by millions and LCA is thankful that Congress is paying attention to the pet theft issue. We look forward to the passage of the Farm Bill,” said LCA Founder & President Chris DeRose. “The countless animals that have been stolen and/or abused at the hands of B dealers deserve this Bill. Please help and contact your Legislators now!”
