1. Help End Cosmetics Testing on Animals in the U.S.
This week landmark legislation was introduced that would end cosmetics testing for animals in the U.S. Even though animal testing for cosmetics isn't required by law, numerous companies still use and kill millions of animals for nothing more than human vanity. With the European Union's ban on testing and marketing in place and a number of other countries following suit, there's no reason for the U.S. to lag behind on this issue when alternatives are available.
Please sign the petition urging your representative to support and co-sponsor this critical piece of legislation to end the unnecessary suffering of animals in labs.
2. Tell California Orcas Don't Belong in Captivity
In response to the documentary Blackfish, a California lawmaker just introduced a bill that would ban orca performances at theme parks, end captive breeding programs and end the import/export of orcas into and out of California. It would also require that the state's 10 captive orcas, who are currently at SeaWorld San Diego, be retired to sea pens if possible or kept on display only.
Please sign the petition urging California lawmakers to be a leader for orcas by supporting and co-sponsoring this legislation.
3. A Victory for Greyhounds, But They Still Need Help
This week Colorado became the 39th state to ban greyhound racing in the U.S. when Governor John Hickenlooper signed a bill making dog racing illegal. There are now seven states left with operational tracks and four where dog racing has been suspended but is still legal.
GREY2K wants to know which state you want to see them focus their efforts on next. Take their poll and let them know here: http://www.grey2kusa.org/action/states/co.php
