URGENT: Tempe/Phoenix Puppy Sales Bans Now Threatened by AZ State Legislature
Mar 11, 2016 — The Arizona State Legislature is trying to quietly rush through a bill that will undo the ordinances passed in Tempe and Phoenix to ban the sale of puppies from puppy mills -- and it will prevent other Arizona cities from passing similar ordinances.
This "striker" bill is being rushed through the Legislature without proper study and is framed in a deceptive way to imply that pet stores will be "responsibly regulated." Make no mistake, the bill will allow the puppy-mill pipeline to thrive in Arizona.
Please sign the attached petition to tell the AZ State Legislature to STOP HB2113: "Responsible Pet Store Regulation"!!
This bill is headed for committee at 9am on Monday, March 14th. Please help us stop it by also contacting the following committee members and telling them to NOT let this get through committee review:
