Subject: Dealing Dogs Nominated for Emmy & PSPA moves forward!

Great news for the animals! The Pet Safety and Protection Act passed the House of Representatives, “Dealing Dogs” has been nominated for two Emmy Awards and HBO is re-airing “Dealing Dogs” – keep reading for all the details!

You made the difference! Thanks to your phone calls and faxes, the House of Representatives accepted the Pet Safety and Protection Act (aka “Buck’s Bill”) as an amendment to the Farm Bill, which prevents companion animals from being sold into research! More good news is the amendment also bars the use of live animals in medical device sales demonstrations and increases fines for violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act.

This is a major step forward for “Buck’s Bill” (shown in photo, rescued from Martin Creek Kennels) and for companion animals across the country. But this fight is not over! We will keep you updated on its progress and how you can help push “Buck’s Bill” to victory.

“Dealing Dogs” Nominated for Two Emmy Awards!

“Dealing Dogs,” HBO’s Genesis Award winning documentary about LCA’s undercover investigation into pet theft, has been nominated for two Emmy Awards – Best Cable Documentary and Best Investigative Documentary. This is a great opportunity for a whole new audience to learn from “Dealing Dogs” and to get involved.
