Tell Arizona’s Governor to Protect Farmed Animals Today!
This action is now over.
The terrible anti-farmed animal bill, HB 2150, was just pushed through the Arizona legislature and is headed to the Governor’s desk. We must do everything we can to stop Governor Ducey from signing this harmful and regressive bill into law.
The bill would remove farmed animals from the protections of the existing animal cruelty code and instead place all farmed animal cruelty enforcement into a “separate but unequal” section of the agricultural code by adding broad exemptions. The bill would also require the Arizona Department of Agriculture to be notified of any investigation of farmed animal cruelty, and make it harder to charge cruelty to livestock as a felony.
Here are some things you can do to help defeat this bill:
- Call Governor Ducey’s office: Call (602) 542-4331 during business hours (9:00 am – 5:00 pm). When you get connected, press one to talk to a staff member. You can simply say: “As an Arizona voter, I urge you to veto HB 2150. We need stronger laws to safeguard Arizona’s animals from cruelty, not separate categories that weaken protections for farmed animals.“
- Comment on Governor Ducey’s Facebook page: Go to the Governor’s page and leave a comment on his most recent post, asking him to veto HB 2150. You can also share our Facebook post to help spread the word.
- Spread the word on Twitter. Tweet at Governor Ducey by mentioning @dougducey and using the hashtags #AZLeg and #HB2150. Here is a sample tweet.
After you have called, please send an email follow up using this form.
Please help us oppose this blatant attempt by the animal agriculture industry to eliminate the few protections that remain for Arizona’s cows, pigs, and chickens.
