Small white puppy in puppy mill

Thank you to everyone who called, wrote, tweeted, and posted to try to stop Senate Bill 331.

If your legislator voted against this bill, please consider sending him/her a thank you note, and please keep speaking up!  Even though we didn’t win this one we need to keep being the voice for animals.  To quote an overused analogy, we didn’t win the battle, but we will keep fighting.  And, we believe in our hearts that we will win the war because ending puppy mills is the right thing to do for people and animals.

Thanks again for all that you do to help animals.
