Hello fellow pet lovers. I know I promised you this all on Monday (liar! I hear you saying at your computer screens), but I’ve been having computer problems. Namely, modem problems. Our modem keeps not working, and the folks at Time Warner kept trying to upgrade instead of helping so that took another day. We’re striving (by we, I mean me) to keep the blog posts rolling along, but sometimes it takes 2 or more hours to get it working again. Someone of the fixer-type is coming on Tuesday, so hopefully it will be smooth sailing from then on.
Now! On to business.
If you follow Lorenzo on Twitter (and you should) you’ll see he’s been posting lots of interesting and important things for us to all take part in to help end needless animal suffering and death - animal aid USA and The Amazing Grace Caravan to name but two.
So this is in the same spirit. The government is looking at changes to the animal welfare act. Changes that will crack down on unlicensed dealers selling dogs, cats and other pets over the Internet or phone.
While I know you don’t buy your pets like that (hopefully a majority adopts!), and only from reputable breeders, but there are so many out there who don’t. Either they don’t know better or they don’t care. But you now have up til July 16 to have your say and do your bit to help change the laws.
Remember, if this change happens and it saves only one animals life, then it’s worth it. And you know it will save so, so, so many more.
