I recieved this e-mail today. Need help from letter writers ...<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Urge Your Senator: Oppose HB 46!<br><br><br><br>
Dear Jenny,<br><br><br><br>
The Missouri House of Representatives has passed a dangerous bill that would make it more difficult for law enforcement to rescue abused and neglected horses and other large animals in Missouri.<br><br><br><br>
Now the bill - HB 46 - has been referred to the Missouri Senate. Please help stop this bill by contacting your State Senator.<br><br><br><br><a href="https://secure2.convio.net/hsmo/site/Advocacy?pagename=homepage&page=UserAction&id=109&JServSessionIdr005=6oxrw7g9d1.app13a" target="_blank">https://secure2.convio.net/hsmo/site...rw7g9d1.app13a</a><br><br><br><br>
The current system works. Law enforcement officials statewide work with veterinarians and with the Humane Society of Missouri to investigate cases of cruelty and neglect, educate owners about proper care of animals, and rescue animals in distress.<br><br><br><br>
HB 46 would create new hurdles for prosectors trying to help suffering animals. It would also endanger animals preventing their rescue until they are in "imminent danger of loss of life." This legislation could have tragic consequences for abused and neglected horses and other large animals. Click here for more information on this bill.<br><br><br><br>
Please contact your State Senator and urge him or her to oppose HB 46!<br><br><br><br>
After you take action, please tell your family and friends to take action on this issue. The more people who contact their legislators, the better our chances are of stopping this bill.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
CLICK <a href="https://secure2.convio.net/hsmo/site/Advocacy?pagename=homepage&page=SplashPage&id=109&JServSessionIdr005=6oxrw7g9d1.app13a" target="_blank">HERE</a> to read more information about this bill.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Thank you for your support of animals in need.<br><br><br><br>
Sincerely,<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

Just an update ...<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Thanks to You,<br><br>
Missouri Senate Fails to Pass HB 46!<br><br><br><br>
Dear Jenny,<br><br><br><br>
Animal lovers like you helped stop a dangerous bill in the Missouri legislature this year.<br><br><br><br>
Earlier this spring, we contacted you about HB 46, which would have made it more difficult for law enforcement to rescue abused and neglected horses and other large animals in Missouri. For more information on HB 46, please click here.<br><br><br><br>
In response to our alert, Humane Society supporters sent more than 1,500 e-mails, faxes, and phone calls to Missouri State Senators - thank you!<br><br><br><br>
The Senate brought HB 46 up for discussion during the last week of the legislative session and then laid the bill over without a vote. The 2007 Legislative Session ended on Friday, May 18 without further action on the bill. If the opposition wants to pass this bill next year, they will have to start from the beginning.<br><br><br><br>
Constituent pressure on legislators can have a strong effect on which bills they bring up for a vote. For that reason, we are grateful for the many messages our supporters sent in opposition to this bill.<br><br><br><br>
This Missouri legislature will not meet again until January 2008. We will continue to update you on pending legislation that would affect the welfare of animals.<br><br><br><br>
Thank you for your support of animals in need.<br><br><br><br>
Sincerely,<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
