Action Alert Nationwide!!!
All eyes are on Texas! Has Texas sold out to the highest bidder? Or will
Governor Perry save the day for animal owners? We join with many other
groups seeking a veto of HB 1451 the HSUS Anti-Breeder Bill. The misnamed
"Puppymill" Bill - also includes "Kittymill" breeders. Good message below
that was forwarded to us so we're passing it on! Deadline for Governor
Perry to sign or veto HB 1451 is June 19th or it AUTOMATICALLY becomes law.

This is a note that I sent to Governor Perry earlier today. Please call his
office and continue to ask that he VETO HB 1451. At this point he could
just ignore the bill and it will become law. We must have a VETO on HB
Even if you are not from , you can call and give your opinion. Perry
may be running for president and he needs to know that more than Texas will
be upset if this bill passes.
Please don't let HB 1451 become law by not taking a stand!! VETO HB 1451.
In Texas unemployment is high, homes are being foreclosed on, children don't
have health care, seniors don't have the social security promised to them..
Our schools are having job cuts, class rooms are getting larger and pay is
getting smaller. Gasoline is at an all-time high.
What does Texas do? Bring a bill/law that will add more people to the
unemployment list; breeding dogs does create jobs and does generate cash
flow down the line.
HB 1451 Bill will hurt the economy by cutting into the pet industry.
One would think the great state of Texas would set an example of not letting
PETA, HSUS, and other Animal Rights Activist push them around. Texas
needs to get its priorities straight in order and stand up for the rights of
Texans. Stop this ridiculous HB1451 Bill and take care of more important
issues at hand.
Is the Lone Star State on its way to becoming a total State? bullying won't stop with dog breeding. What will be next, no more
leather saddles to ride on our horses? Riding horses is already seen by some
as animal abuse. Texas Ranchers may be next and Hunting & Fishing will be
targets too. We may soon be wishing we had gotten involved when AR's were
only targeting the . If you have an interest in any type of
animal product be it a puppy, a steak, a glass of milk, an egg, or a pair of
leather boots, please veto this bill.
HB 1451 is just the beginning. Wake up Texas!
Please contact every day in every way! Ask him to "VETO
