Please Tell Gov. Schwarzenegger the Eyes of the Nation Are On Him: Sign AB 2743 Without Delay!

Stop Mandatory Declawing and Devocalization--Email Today and call today!

Please Tell Gov. Schwarzenegger the Eyes of the Nation Are On Him:

Sign AB 2743 Without Delay!

Thanks to the tireless efforts of the Paw Project, last week the California state legislature passed AB 2743, which will prohibit landlords from requiring tenants to declaw or devocalize their cats and dogs.

Great news but...

It's not law until Gov. Schwarzenegger signs it. And it won't be if the California Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) has its way. Your voice is important to protect vulnerable dogs and cats--and the people who love them.

Ironically, while landlord associations supported AB 2743, CVMA has lobbied very hard against it. The Paw Project reports that CVMA is now urging its members to send letters of opposition to the governor. That's disappointing but not surprising: Mass. Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA) lobbied against Logan's Law, which took effect July 21, making Massachusetts the first state to ban cruel devocalization of dogs and cats.

You didn't let MVMA win at the expense of vulnerable animals; don't let CVMA.

No Matter Where You Live, You Can Help In 5 Minutes or Less!

Please call email or fax Gov. Schwarzenegger right away; tell him the eyes of the nation are on him, and people of goodwill are waiting for him to sign AB 2743 into law. Then forward this eAlert to family and friends throughout the U.S. who care about animals.
