Can someone tell me what the heck this is about

*SB 250 The Pet Owner Punishment Act - * The senators have been told that this is NOT AB 1634...

It isn't - it is WORSE!

SB 250 is ONE STRIKE and you are forever out of dogs.

You will never be able to own an intact dog EVER!



SB 250 does not take into account the working dog, the competition dog, or the every day life of a pet when natural or man-made disasters/accidents occur.

Please forward this to family, friends, put it on your Facebook pages, contact your puppy buyers.

We need phone calls and faxes throughout the weekend.

* The quickest way for individual Californians to send an opposition

email or compose a letter to their own state senator is with the

updated NAIA action alert

<http://capwiz.com/naiatrust/issues/alert/?alertid=13443321&type=ST&show_alert=1>.

It just takes a few minutes.

* call the capital office of your state senator and ask him or her

to oppose SB 250. Your senator's capital office phone number can

be found here <http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/yourleg.html>. It takes

less than a minute to make the call. Leave a voice message if no

one answers. Politely say:



"Hello, my name is <your name>. I live in <your city's

name>. I'm calling to ask Senator <senator's name> to please

vote NO on SB 250, mandatory spay/neuter for dogs and cats,

when it comes to the senate floor for a vote."

This was forwarded to me by a friend in a different group. I'm horrified by it.

What state?

I sure would like to know how they are going to enforce a law like this! Has it been passed by the House?

I guess I thought it was California, but I'm not sure.

It's Ca. Levine has created the biggest mess that should have been stopped as soon as he started. Everyone across the country should be calling and giving their unemotional opinion, not just those in Ca. There are breeders who have been looking for states to move to but what happens in Ca will go across the country. If they followed the laws they already have on the books they wouldn't have so many problems but instead HSUS is pushing this and Ca gets to make a lot of money from it. Eukanuba threatened to pull out of Long Beach, Ca because of the legislation and in 2010 I believe it is, they'll be in Florida instead. Ca will lose millions of dollars because of it and they still don't get it.

It is a hot mess. They need to use the laws already on the books first. I remember reading the shelters spend about 250million dollars a year in California and 95% of the dogs that come in are not altered so that is where the proposal started. They do need to change things but having these crazy open laws that if your dog gets offleash it gets spayed or neutered. The other one that was insane was something about no extra fee for big commercial breeders to have dogs not spayed or neutered but hobby breeders would pay a large fee to have an intact animal. But then when you look at the numbers they put forth, the largest source of where they said their dogs come from is pet stores/puppy mills! So how the heck is that gonna fix the problem.

While I was in LA, I went over to a bad area to do a breed identification for HRI. I have never seen a shelter like that in my life. It was huge, it was open it was horrible. I can see why they feel like something needs to be done. There were tons of working dogs (including lots of pits) jumping up and down and barking the entire time in cages. I was teary eyed a minute after going in there and they brought the dog out to see me. But unfortunately the way this is going about would harm the wrong people and instead make those puppy mills and pet stores, the places to get dogs from!!!

I think that proposal is alarming. I can't imagine what it would be like to live there with dogs, worrying about all the possible infractions if that became law.

I talked to a friend in Ca today who stays on top of the dog laws. She was telling me that if a handler or someone who shows their own dogs has one little step out of line they can spay all of the dogs with you at that dog show. What handler or person would go to a show in Ca and risk it? Gee, the dog barked, let's spay 20 of them. Wow they get their kicks in strange ways. A huge problem in Ca is all the dogs smuggled in from Mexico and they don't do a thing about that. There's no way I'd go 'home' with one of my dogs with me..well, except for the poodle who is spayed but they'd probably find some way to put her down if I dropped her leash by mistake.
Dogs at dog shows are off leash......they have to be in the obedience ring. Oops, spay the dog!
It's insanity at it's finest.

Oh, I forgot a part of our conversation about Ca. The state is broke so they're stopping all welfare to kids. Can you imagine a mother fighting to put food in their child's mouth and being told sorry, you're on your own even though there are no jobs out there right now?
There is going to be a huge spike in domestic violence and other types of violence out there if they don't do something.
Granted, the welfare system shouldn't be used lightly, that's a given, but we're in a pretty bad way all across the country. There are even people going to work in Ca and getting IOU's instead of a paycheck.
Where do you think people are going to put all that rage they're feeling? They sure as heck aren't going to be holding a peace rally
