Urge your representatives to oppose the U.S. Farm Bill "King Amendment"

6/22/18 update: On June 22, the U.S. House of Representatives passed their version of the 2018 Farm Bill, which included the dangerous King Amendment.
It is extremely important that we keep the pressure on while Congress debates the final version of the bill. Please contact your representatives today to urge them to oppose the language in Rep. King's "Protect Interstate Commerce Act" in any version of the U.S. Farm Bill.

This is a moment when you can really make a difference. Dogs in puppy mills need your voice, and you can lend it right now.

There is a provision in the pending 2018 U.S. Farm Bill that would jeopardize a tremendous amount of lifesaving progress for dogs, cats and other animals throughout the U.S.

But you can help stop it.
An amendment introduced by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) would deny states the authority to pass and enforce laws regarding “agricultural products”— which refers not only to farm animals, but also to dogs in puppy mills, which are under the oversight of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

If the Farm Bill is enacted with this amendment, many important animal welfare laws could be repealed, including bans on the sale of dogs and cats from inhumane breeding mills. Not only would existing laws be at risk, but states could be prohibited from passing new laws to protect animals.

Please contact your representatives today to urge them to oppose the inclusion of Rep. King’s amendment in the 2018 Farm Bill.   

Thank you for speaking up for animals. Your kindness is powerful, and your voice makes a real difference. Together, we can Save Them All.
