ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Ask Lawmakers in RI to Protect Pets from Mutilation

Legislation was recently introduced in Rhode Island that would prohibit landlords from requiring tenants to devocalize or declaw their pets. However, animal advocates are arguing that landlords aren't the reason pets are exposed to these dangerous and unnecessary surgeries - irresponsible owners are, and even if this law is passed landlords will easily be able to bypass it by banning pets entirely which would make it even harder for renters with companion animals to find a place to live. 

Please sign the petition asking lawmakers in Rhode Island to withdraw their bill and introduced legislation that will ban declawing and devocalization entirely. 


2. Help Make it a Crime to Watch a Dogfight in Montana

Montana is currently the only state in the U.S. that has no penalties for being a spectator at a dogfight and they just killed a bill that would have made it a misdemeanor. Spectators who attend dogfights, and other animal bloodsports, help fuel this barbaric underground industry and perpetuate other illegal activity and should be held accountable. 

Please sign the petition asking lawmakers in Montana to revive the bill and make it a crime to attend a dogfight. 


3. Help a Community Save Wild Horses in Nevada

Despite numerous solutions offered by residents, local officials and wild horse advocacy groups to keep a herd wild and free, the Bureau of Land Management has once again refused to listen to reason and rounded them up, finishing off the herd for good. 

Please send a letter to the BLM asking that these horses are immediately released and dealt with on the range.
