Put simply, we are asking that you send an email, a Facebook message, or an old-fashioned letter to the people who are running to represent your district in Wisconsin’s House of Representatives or Senate and ask them the following two questions:
1. If you had to vote on legislation that attempted to undermine Act 90, otherwise known as the Puppy Mill Bill, would you oppose or support it, and why?
2. Would you support or oppose stricter anti-cruelty laws to better protect the companion animals in this state, and why?
Why are these two questions so important? Well, opponents of Act 90 tried to amend the bill twice last year before it’s ink was barely dry and we anticipate that the bill will face additional challenges in the upcoming legislative session. And we are hopeful that tougher anti-cruelty legislation will be put before our state legislators after the upcoming elections are decided.
Please help us by posing the above questions to your district’s political candidates and sharing their responses with us. We guarantee you will remain anonymous if we publish the responses you receive from your local candidates.
Thank you for helping us to help Wisconsin’s beloved companion animals.
