PA: Take action for companion animals

Urge state legislators to support Victoria's Law.

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

If enacted, Senate Bill 44 (“Victoria’s Law”) will help put an end to the suffering of countless animals in substandard breeding facilities and reduce killing in our shelters.

This bill has been pending in the state legislature, but with your help we can move it forward. Even if you've supported this bill before, please contact your representatives again.

TAKE ACTION: Urge your representatives to support SB 44.

Pennsylvanians have made it clear that they do not support pet mills. That’s why Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Wilkinsburg, Bellevue and Sharpsburg have joined more than 330 other cities and counties ― as well as the entire states of California and Maryland ― that have already passed laws to ban the retail sale of pets sourced from commercial breeding facilities.

This bill has been pending in the state legislature, but with your help we can move it forward. Even if you've supported this bill before, please contact your representatives again. Tell them this is important to you and to lifesaving for Pennsylvania pets.

TAKE ACTION: Urge your representatives to support SB 44.

Please support SB 44 (Victoria's Law)

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent, I respectfully urge you to support Senate Bill 44 ("Victoria's Law"), which will restrict the retail sale of inhumanely bred dogs, cats and rabbits, many of whom end up in our overcrowded, taxpayer-subsidized shelters.



Please protect pets, consumers and taxpayers in Pennsylvania by supporting Senate Bill 44, Victoria's Law.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
