But there is no need for this practice to continue, which is why Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) and Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) introduced the newest version of the BEST Practices Act earlier this week.

Please ask your representative to co-sponsor the bill by calling and use this form to send an email today.

And/Or better yet, make direct contact:

INFORMATION

Every year, the U.S. military shoots, stabs, and dismembers more than 8,500 animals in combat trauma training courses. But there is no need for this practice to continue, which is why Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) and Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) introduced the newest version of the BEST Practices Act earlier this week. Please ask your representative to co-sponsor the bill by calling and e-mailing today.

Simply call the U.S. Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 and tell the operator where you live. Ask to contact your representative's office. Please be polite and encouraging when you call and be sure to say: "Iím a constituent, and Iím calling to ask that Rep. [last name] please co-sponsor H.R. 1243, the BEST Practices Act."

After you call, please send your representative an e-mail.

You have probably heard of the BEST Practices Act, but this is a new Congress, so we need you to take action again. Momentum to replace the military's animal use is stronger than ever before. In the last Congress, the House and Senate versions of the bill gathered almost 100 co-sponsors. And the Editorial Board of The New York Times urged an end to this animal use last summer.

State-of-the-art human-relevant training methods like the Cut Suit (pictured above) can provide better training than the militaryís current use of goats and pigs.

Please call and e-mail your representative today. With your help, we will modernize military medical training and end this cruel animal use.

We will keep you posted as this legislation moves through Congress and let you know what further actions you can take. Thank you for your help.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
