ASPCA seeks your help for California Responsible Breeder Act

ASPCA Urgent Alert

Dear California Advocates,

The California Responsible Breeder Act of 2009 is moving quickly toward becoming state law--the Senate is expected to vote on it as early as this week. It is crucial that your senator votes YES on this humane legislation that will help crack down on puppy mills.

If passed, the Responsible Breeder Act will limit the number of intact animals that large-scale breeding facilities are permitted to own. With this law on the books, law enforcement will finally have the authority to put an end to inhumane, overcrowded conditions at puppy mills.

Similar legislation limiting the number of dogs who may be kept by commercial breeders has already passed in Louisiana, Virginia and Washington. You can help California be next!

What You Can Do

We all hate puppy mills. This is your chance to really do something about them-- call your state senator's office today to urge him or her to vote in favor of the Responsible Breeder Act (AB 241).

Visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center to find your senator's phone numbers and to let us know you called.

Thank you, California, for joining the battle against puppy mills.
