Dear California Supporters, Please join us at the State Capitol in Sacramento on Thursday, April 8, for California Humane Lobby Day. This is an exciting opportunity to meet directly with your elected officials about legislation that will significantly impact animals!

During Lobby Day, co-sponsored by the ASPCA and the Humane Society of the United States, you’ll have the opportunity to be the voice for animals and provide in-person support for several animal-friendly bills now pending in the California State Legislature.

In the morning, ASPCA and HSUS lobbyists will help prepare you to meet your elected officials and their staffs with a briefing on tips for lobbying and an overview of pending animal legislation. You will also be provided with the materials you need to be an effective animal advocate. Best of all, you’ll get to meet with both your state senator and assemblymember—we’ll set up appointments for you and others in your district after you register to attend.

Date: Thursday, April 8, 2010
Time: 9:30 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
Place: State Capitol
Corner of 11th and L streets
Room 4202 (4th floor)
Sacramento, CA 95814
Cost: None! Participation in Lobby Day is free, but space is limited and you must register by April 1st.

California’s animals need your voice! Please register today to take part in this amazing event.
Thank you, California, for caring about animals and supporting the ASPCA.

YES! Walking Your Dog Counts!

YES! Walking Your Dog Counts!

Just how effective can walking your dog be when trying to lose weight? Pretty effective, according to a University of Missouri-Columbia study in which participants lost an average of 14 pounds by walking a dog 20 minutes a day, five days a week for 50 weeks. The study shows that you can still see weight-loss results without power walking or jogging. A routine stroll could be just the trick!

There are two reasons why walking your dog can be more effective than walking by yourself:

• People tend to be more faithful to their furry friends than they are to their own fitness regime.

• The mere fact that walking a dog requires a set schedule forces you to follow it.

• Walking your dog gives you just the kind of discipline and motivation you need to lose weight!

So grab a leash, get your dog, and start walking!  Looking to pick up a little extra cash?  Pick up a couple dog walking jobs… and see your health improve and the pounds melt away.
