From Animal Place

Take action before June 19!

Support California Senate Bill SB 135 would ban the tail docking of cows.


California residents, find your legislator. Input your zip code and mail or email your Assemblymember your support of SB 135.

Contact the legislators on the California Legislature's Public Safety committee:

Assemblymember Hagman
Assemblymember Furutani
Assemblymember Gilmore
Assemblymember Hill
Assemblymember Ma


Tail docking of cattle is not approved by the American Veterinary Medical Association and the California Veterinary Medical Association has registered its support of SB 135.

Tail docking is generally performed on adult animals, causing prolonged pain and suffering. The amputation is not done with pain relief or anesthesia.

There is no benefit to the cow and, in fact, her health is compromised due to her inability to swat at flies.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
