ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Ask Two Governors to Support Greyhounds

Greyhound decoupling is expected to be on the legislative agenda in Iowa and Florida next year. As it stands, greyhound racing is required in order for other types of gambling to run, which means even if businesses wanted to shut it down they couldn't. If decoupling is supported it could help end greyhound racing. 

Please sign the petition urging the governors of Iowa and Florida to support greyhound decoupling. 


2. Save Beagle Puppies from Cruel Rabies Experiment

The Taiwanese Council of Agriculture is planning to test how infectious a new strain of rabies is by injecting it into at least 14 beagle puppies, even though we already know what rabies does and how it is spread. 

Please send a letter to Taiwan’s premier Jiang Yi-huah asking that this senseless experiment be stopped and efforts be focused instead on studying the effectiveness of current vaccinations.  


3. Stop Dangerous King Amendment From Passing

Lawmakers are working on the Farm Bill and the King Amendment is still in there. This amendment could take away state's rights to decide welfare practices and could jeopardize a wide range of progressive moves from cracking down on puppy mills to banning gestation crates. 

Please send a letter to your representative asking that they oppose this amendment.
