We’re now facing one of the most serious threats to dog protection laws ever—and we need your help to stop it.
The House of Representatives’ Farm Bill contains an amendment from Rep. Steve King (R-IA) that could wipe out dog protection laws nationwide. Laws banning dog meat sales and those cracking down on puppy mills are all in jeopardy. And it doesn’t stop there: this amendment could also repeal laws banning horse slaughter—along with environmental protection, worker safety, and other important laws. If the King amendment passes, these could all could be nullified.
Please make a brief, polite phone call to your U.S. Representative urging support of the Denham-Schrader amendment, which would strip the King amendment from the Farm Bill. You can say: “As a constituent concerned about preventing cruelty to animals, I'm calling to urge you to support the Denham-Schrader amendment because I want animals to have protection from cruelty.”
