LAST CHANCE FOR ANIMALS ALERT
Both the House and the Senate passed versions of the Farm Bill with The Pet Safety & Protection Act (PSPA) attached as an amendment. This provides us with a unique opportunity to protect companion animals, one that may not come again for another 5 years! We are at a pivotal point! House and Senate members of the Agriculture Committee will be meeting soon to iron out the differences between their respective versions of the Farm Bill. We must act now in order to get the PSPA over the finish line!
This final stage of the process is expected to take place soon, we need you to contact your representatives today!
WHAT YOU CAN DO: Members on the Agriculture conference committee may seek to eliminate or weaken the PSPA. It is essential that all conferees be encouraged to support the House version in the FARM bill, as the Senate version includes a 5-year phase-in period, as well as potentially problematic ambiguous language. Please contact as many conferees as you can, making those who represent your district or state a priority. (A list of conferees and their phone and fax numbers and mailing addresses can be found by clicking here: House - Senate.)
Please contact the conferees as soon as possible.
First Priority: Call your representatives! Tell them that you support The Pet Safety & Protection Act in the Farm Bill. The PSPA will keep companion animals safe.
Second Priority: Fax your letters to the Congressional offices. See writing tips below.
Third Priority: Send your letters by the U.S. Postal Service, but please send them immediately to ensure they are cleared through security and delivered to the Congressional offices as soon as possible.
When contacting legislators, please mention:
Adoption of the PSPA will prevent illegally acquired dogs and cats from being sold by random source, Class B dealers for research. You appreciate that both chambers of Congress have attached the PSPA to their versions of the FARM Bill. You respectfully request that he or she support the House version of the PSPA and hope that this will be reported out of conference. You may also wish to request that a written response be sent to you, as both a way to formally acknowledge your call, letter of fax and to confirm the stated position on this issue.
