Governor Brad Henry signed the puppy mill bill into law Thursday!   A big step in the right direction for doing right by the puppies!   High volume breeding operations will now be regulated in Oklahoma, and for those legitimate hobby breeders the bill does not mean that much — it will target those operating in substandard conditions.   Thank you Governor Henry and for all those who worked so hard for years to get regulations passed for the breeding of Oklahoma’s companion animals!

S.B. 1712 is headed for the Governor!

Don’t Let the Puppy Mill Bill Die!

Now is probably the most important time to call your State Senator and tell them that you expect them to hold true to the vote that they cast yesterday on S.B. 1712.  After passing S.B. 1712 all were elated that there was finally going to be Puppy Mill regulation ending years of animal abuse and neglect.  Unfortunately, Senator Jay Paul Gumm, a Democrat from Dooorant, has employed one of our legislature’s favorite shenanigans and held the bill for reconsideration.  This is apparently when all of the cookies are passed out to change votes or to let the bill die without a vote so they can go home and say that they voted for it, but it didn’t come up again.  (You will recall the “Cock Fighting” legislation of years past).  Don’t be surprised when the vote goes the other way or doesn’t happen.  That is unacceptable!  Don’t let it happen.

You must not tire now. One more time, for the animals.  Call your Senator!  Do it NOW!

You can say: “My name is [your name] and I’m calling from [your town]. As a constituent, I’m calling to ask you not to let S.B. 1712 die and to hold true to your vote to protect dogs in Oklahoma puppy mills.”

Please Call your Senator Today!

Dear Animal Lovers,Please call your Senator.  SB 1712 will be going back to the Senate early this week. This will be for a final vote to approve the amendments which have been made since the bill was introduced this session. Without the approval of the amendments the bill will not become law. This is what happened last year!Please call, email or visit your senator on Monday, April 26th and let them know that SB 1712 will address the cruelty, tax evasion and consumer fraud that is rampant in the black market puppy trade in our state. Please tell them to vote YES for SB 1712.

“One more time please?”
