Stop the Puppy Mills One More Time!

Need help! folks to stop the attempt to halt regulation of puppy mills!

Monday at 3:30pm the Senate Agriculture Committee will be hearing HB2921 (authored by Rep. Phil Richardson and Senator Josh Breechen) which is quickly getting worse than we thought. I have attached some information as well on why this bill should be opposed. We really need calls and emails to go the Ag committee members ASAP to say the following below in orange. In addition, we need people to attend the meeting. If this bill is not heard on Monday then it will die. The committee members do not want a commotion and will be less likely to move forward on this bill if we have a good show of support. The breeders have been in attendance at these meetings but animal welfare advocates have not.

This is a sample of how your email might read or what you may want to say on the phone:

Dear Senator xxxx,

On Monday you are scheduled to hear HB2921 in the Agriculture Committee. Please oppose HB2921 which is nothing more than an attempt to halt the momentum that has been created to regulate commercial dog breeders. This bill would abolish the current rules and force the Dept of Ag to start completely over in its regulation. This is nothing more than a stall tactic to try to avoid regulation. Oklahoma is known nationwide for its substandard dog breeding operations. Delaying regulation in any way will only hinder the current progress in addressing this embarrassing problem in Oklahoma.
