Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

ASPCA: Thank You for a Great Year in Humane Legislation!

Legislative Success 2009

In 2009, ASPCA supporters like you made a world of difference for animals throughout the country. Together, we shared our anti-cruelty message with countless pet-passionate people—and lawmakers noticed. With the help of our more than 1.4 million Advocacy Brigade members, the ASPCA fought for and celebrated major legislative victories for both companion and farm animals.

Whether you wrote letters to your legislators to express concern about a federal or state bill, signed up for ASPCA Advocacy text messages to keep abreast of important legislative alerts or simply spread the word about our efforts to friends and family, the ASPCA appreciates your determination to make our world a better place for all living beings.

Read on to learn more about some of 2009’s brand new laws—laws that you helped pass!

CA Action: Puppy Mill Bill + 2 More Bills Await Governor’s Okay!

ASPCA Urgent Alert

Dear California Advocates,

Good news! Three important bills that the ASPCA has been fighting for in California have finished their journeys through the State Legislature:

Assembly Bill 241, a.k.a. the Responsible Breeder Act, will limit the number of intact adult animals that pet-breeding facilities are permitted to own.
Assembly Bill 1122 would prohibit the sale of animals on streets and in other public spaces. (It exempts legitimate adoption events.)
Senate Bill 135 would prohibit the docking of cows’ tails.

All that is required for each of these bills to become state law is Governor Schwarzenegger’s signature.

What You Can Do

Take a few minutes today to contact Governor Schwarzenegger to ask him to sign these three bills into law.
Governor Schwarzenegger’s Office: (916) 445-2841

If you’d like to learn more about each bill, or see our tips on what to say when you call, please visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center online.

Thank you for your help advancing this humane legislation—we’re just one step away from victory!
