ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Tell Connecticut to Stop Supporting Puppy Mills

Animal advocates have traced the majority of pet store puppies to puppy mills are supporting legislation that would ban the retail sale of dogs and cats who don't come from an animal control facility, shelter or rescue and are asking stores to adopt a humane business model by partnering with these types of organizations instead of sourcing animals from mills, but pet store owners are fighting it. 

Please sign the petition urging Connecticut's lawmakers to make an unprecedented move by supporting legislation that would ban the sale of dogs from puppy mills. 


2. Tell Farmers Insurance to Stop Breed Discrimination

Farmers Insurance has changes its policies to exclude pit bulls and rottweilers, which has raised fears that more will be given up and needlessly killed. Discriminating against customers based on how their dogs look is an unfair practice that punishes responsible dog owners and good dogs with no legitimate basis.  

Please sign the petition asking the company to abandon its restricted breeds list and alter rates for dog owners based on other factors, such as a history of aggression or for proof of spay/neuter and training. 


3. Tell Amazon to Stop Selling Foie Gras

The inherent cruelty of foie gras production has been highlighted by numerous undercover investigations and led to calls for retailers to stop peddling it. Amazon UK recently announced that it would ban the sale of foie gras, but the worldwide site has yet to follow suit. 

Please sign the petition asking Amazon to take a stand for animals as it has done with other issues, such as banning whale meat, by banning sales of foie gras.
