Humane Lobby Day 2012
Our trip to Springfield with The Humane Society of the United States and the ASPCA was simply amazing! Thanks to Kristen Strawbridge,Matthew Dominguez, Tawyna Mosgrove, Dave Marsh, Vicki and the rest of the team for such a great day. Learned about all the important bills that are in the process so be informed, urge your people to take note, and help protect animals:
· Shark Fin Sales Ban: HB 4119 would ban the possession, sale, trade, and distribution of shark fins in the state of Illinois.
· Routine Bovine Tail Docking Ban: HB 1697 would ban the tail docking of cattle unless performed by a veterinarian for therapeutic purposes.
And if you need to find your people, this is the link: http://www.elections.il.gov/districtlocator/districtofficialsearchbyaddress.aspx
We even got a picture with Governor Quinn, he's a big animal lover so let him know he's doing a great job!
Now to see what we can do about the Illinois law, maybe we can add a bullet point to those "Distracted Driver" bills, to include unrestrained pets or pets sitting on your lap.
Don't forget to buckle in your dog too!!
