Devocalization Ban in NY

CPRPets Forward:

The vets and breeders are killing our pending state devoc ban in NY. We need it reported out of committee favorably, as written, on June 7!!!

Animal lovers in NY State: Ban cruel devocalization of dogs & cats. Call 518-455-4807 by 6/3. Urge the Agriculture Committee to put A3431-A on its 6/7 agenda & pass as written. Voicemail? Leave a short message, call again. The breeding & veterinary lobbies want to kill/dilute this bill; they profit from devocalization!
