Stay tuned for any action to get Massachusetts’ groundbreaking devocalization ban passed in the Senate too.

ALERT WRITER: Coalition to Protect and Rescue Pets, CPRPets@aol.com

BACKGROUND: Dog breeders and the Mass. Veterinary Medical Assn. (MVMA) are successfully fighting legislation to stop devocalization -- cutting a dog or cat's vocal cords to stifle or remove their voice. An Act Prohibiting Devocalization, House Bill 344, has been stalled in committee for more than three months. Without immediate action, this humane bill will die.
