Great news! The dreaded King Amendment which would have weakened, if passed, many state farm animal protection laws, has been excluded from this year's Farm Bill!!! Here is a link that explains the amendment and why this is an important victory for all of us!
Also, we received a complaint that the German Shepherds cared for behind the Orleans Parish Prison are housed in outdoor kennels and only have blue tarps and dog houses for shelter! The dogs are not afforded any heating units. In addition, prison employees have been observed hosing down the kennels, in this freezing weather, with the dogs still inside!! The dogs are sprayed with water during this freeze!!! Please contact the sheriff's Office to complain of these actions and demand that the dogs be given access to heated facilities and removed from their kennels during all cleaning operations:
Please also consider voting for another candidate during the upcoming election!! Gusman is no animal lover and lacks sensitivity even to the needs and safety of the inmates placed in his care!
