Yesterday, 27 October 2009, The Wisconsin Assembly passed AB-250, the Commercial Dog Breeders Licensure Bill, by unanimous vote, 96 to 0!!!! What a great day for dogs and the people who love them in Wisconsin.
Rep. Jeff Smith asked that the vote be dedicated to Wilbert Ribbens, who passed away the day before the public hearing on this bill. Mr. Ribbens was a great animal lover whose letter to his daughter about a sick, sad pet store puppy over 10 years ago laid the groundwork for the Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project and, incidentally, today's vote.
Please join us in THANKING Rep. Smith and each and every one of our WI Representatives!
Next hurdle: SB-208 will be debated by the Joint Finance Committee on 28 October. Please see our JOINT FINANCE COMMITTEE ALERT for action you can take to help get SB-208 into the full Senate on 5 November!
****For some reason, the links wouldn't take this morning. I know some folks had said they had issues with this the last few days....please go to www.nowisconsinpuppymill.com for more info!!!*************
10/26 ACTION ALERT - URGENT!
Your help is needed NOW to move SB 208, the Senate version of the Dog Breeder Licensure Bill, through the Joint Finance Committee.
Please email the members of the Joint Finance Committee to ask them to pass SB 208 out of their committee without any further changes or amendments.
We MUST get the Senate bill out of the Joint Finance Committee this week in order to get it to the Senate floor on November 5th, the LAST day of the Senate Session.
Both bills, AB 250 and SB 208, MUST pass in order for this worthy legislation to become LAW.
PLEASE ASK ME ABOUT MY GIVE BACK PROGRAM, WHERE I MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TO AN ANIMAL SHELTER IN YOUR NAME UPON CLOSING!!!
