Repost: URGENT: Virginia Residents-by 9 am, Feb 7th
- This is correct language for the previous alert:
URGENT for Virginia Residents. Please help stop the Farm Bureau from denying all basic animal care to farm animals. You must contact your state senator and delegate (or send this e-letter) by 9 am, Feb 7th.
PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY AND TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY.
A bill is currently being reviewed in the Virginia Legislature, SB 1026/HB 1541, which would alter the existing cruelty code to essentially exempt protection for animals involved in farming. Virginia's current law has been a successful tool for animal cruelty prosecutions, animal control officers, and humane investigators.
Please join me in asking our state legislators to say NO to SB 1026/HB 1541. It will only take a minute.
