Urgent Action for NYS Residents


THE GOVERNOR NOW HAS UNTIL JANUARY 10th TO SIGN THE PUPPY MILL BILL INTO LAW!

It is more critical than ever that the governor hears from animal advocates like you. Will you **call** Governor Cuomo at (518) 474-8390 and politely urge him to sign the pet dealer bill into law?

You can simply say: “I am a constituent and I would like to urge Governor Cuomo to sign A.740-A/S.3753-A into law.”

We’ve worked so hard to get this bill this far. Please help us get it signed into law! Time is running out!
