Legislative News & Petitions


Can one person’s signature really make a difference? That‘s what many people wonder when they are asked to sign a petition. But when that one signature is added to another and another and another, it most definitely can. People may feel hesitant to sign a petition for a variety of reasons. Let’s consider some of these reasons.

People think their signature won’t matter.

One signature alone may not do any good, but together with many, your voice will be heard.

The petition’s decision maker will never agree.

It may be that they aren’t aware of the issues, or they may just be stubborn, but group vocal support for an issue will be heard and at least considered. Change may not be immediate, but it’s a step in the right direction.

The petition has already reached its goal for signatures.

Outgrowing the signature goal will only prove to show that there is a need for change and a lot of people are pushing for that change.

There are no federal laws to protect companion animals from abuse or neglect, and the lack of federal laws has resulted in individual states haphazardly doling out what they deem appropriate laws. The problem is – what some states consider appropriate justice for animal cruelty is a drop in the bucket compared to other states. Please help us to get federal legislation for equally appropriate laws and clear definition of minimum standard care between states to deter those so inclined to abuse our loving companion animals.
