I was reading a very informative article about the bill AB1634. As a volunteer and foster mum for several rescue organizations I definitely support this bill!
I was really shocked about one persons comment, saying that killing an animal cost only 30 cents. She should be ashamed of herself minimizing their lives like that! Is the live of a young and healthy pet not worth more than 30 cents?
Has she ever spend time in a shelter??? People like this make it hard for compassionate animal lovers and responsible pet owners.
All the heartbraking stories, the faces that we never forget and all the dogs and cats that we have to leave behind because we cannot save them all! The wagging tails, the sad eyes that want to tell you: take me!!! I'm dreaming about this every night. When I leave a shelter I cry for all these wonderful creatures that I have to leave behind.
How can anybody be against this bill??? These people should go to the shelters and volunteer just for a week. I bet it wouldn't even take them a day to understand how we feel and I bet it would change their minds.
The bill AB1634 is not discriminating serious and knowledgeable dog breeders. It is to prevent unserious "backyard breeding", it is to protect innocent pets owned by irresponsible people, it is to save lives! Of course, there are still a lot of "grey zones", but it's time to start somewhere!!!
Please, everybody who is against this bill, go to visit a shelter, go from kennel to kennel, spend a few minutes with every animal, look into these innocent eyes of young and healthy animals....and imagine that this could be YOUR pet. Now, tell me how you feel!
Bill AB1634 is overdue! Please, support this bill!!!
