Massachusetts: Close the Puppy Mill to Pet Shop Pipeline
THIS ACTION IS FOR MASSACHUSETTS RESIDENTS ONLY.
Across the country, dogs are suffering in puppy mills – inhumane commercial breeding operations that prioritize profit over the well-being of animals. Some of these dogs are ultimately sold in Massachusetts pet shops.
A bill that would shut down the puppy mill to pet shop pipeline by prohibiting the sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits in stores is being considered by the Massachusetts Legislature.
Please call your state senator and state representative, then send follow-up emails, urging them to support An Act Banning the Retail Sale of Cats and Dogs in Pet Shops (H.800/S.175) , filed by Representative Natalie Higgins and Senator Patrick O’Connor.
- Call your state senator and representative. Phone calls have much more impact than emails. If you’re able to make a phone call, please do so. You can use this message: “As your constituent, I urge you to support An Act Banning the Retail Sale of Cats and Dogs in Pet Shops (H.800/S.175) and close the puppy mill to pet shop pipeline.”
- After calling, send a follow-up email to your legislators using the form below. Personalizing your message will help it stand out.
Ask your state legislators to provide an opportunity for dogs and cats used in research to find loving homes once their time in a research laboratory has come to an end by supporting An Act Protecting Research Animals.January 12, 2020 Action Alert
