Action Alert: Gov. Schwarzenegger Plans to Veto Puppy Sales Bill

Action Alert: Gov. Schwarzenegger Plans to Veto Puppy Sales Bill

Even though puppies that are weaned too early are susceptible to
illness and premature death, many puppies as young as two weeks
old are shipped from Mexico into California every year and sold
in pet stores. A new bill (SB 914) introduced by Senator
Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego) would prohibit the sale or
purchase of puppies that have not been nursed by their mothers
for at least eight weeks. Yet Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, in
deference to the pet sales industry, has announced plans to veto
the bill, putting puppies' lives in danger.

SB 914 may arrive on the Governor's desk as early as TODAY September
6th. Please contact his office immediately to ask that he sign
SB 914, the Puppy Sales Bill, into law. Click

information, including a Web form that you can use to email the
Governor.
