Best Friends Legislative Alert

Urge your representatives to vote YES on SB 1154.

Great news! The state legislature is considering a lifesaving bill that will prohibit pet stores from selling dogs, cats and rabbits ― unless they come from shelters or rescue groups.

If enacted, Senate Bill 1154 will help put an end to the suffering of countless animals in substandard breeding facilities, and will help reduce killing in our shelters. 

Americans have made it clear that they do not support puppy mills. That’s why more than 275 cities and counties throughout the U.S. (including Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, as well as the entire states of California and Maryland) have already passed laws to ban the retail sale of puppies from inhumane breeding mills. And now Pennsylvania is poised to do the same.

Please take action today by urging your representatives to vote YES on SB 1154.

Thank you for speaking up for animals. Together, we can Save Them All.

Please support SB 1154 to protect pets and consumers

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a proud resident of Pennsylvania, I respectfully urge you to support Senate Bill 1154, which, if enacted, would restrict the retail sale of inhumanely bred dogs, cats and rabbits, many of whom end up in our overcrowded, taxpayer-subsidized shelters.

I urge you to protect pets, consumers and taxpayers in Pennsylvania by voting yes on SB 1154.
