Your Republican Party at Work for You: Let’s Protect Puppy Mills

The ASPCA is alerting Georgia citizens that on Monday, puppy mill lobbyists will be trying to pass an amendment to a bill in the Georgia house.  This amendment(to HB 876) will “prevent local governments from banning the sale of puppy mill puppies in existing pet stores.”  These Puppy mills, according to the ASPCA “are cruel breeding facilities that prioritize profits over the health and wellbeing of animals.  Dogs in these operations are often kept in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions without adequate veterinary care, food, water or socialization.”

Republicans who support the amendment advertise themselves as supporting local control, but this amendment prevents local communities from deciding that they don’t want their pet stores to sell these cruelly treated animals.

Please phone: Lieutenant Gov. Georgia Casey Cagle.  You can leave a message on the weekend, or phone Monday.  (404) 656-5030.  You can also contact your local representative and senator.
