Stop Republicans From Legalizing Puppy Mills, Horse Meat and Other Forms of Animal Abuse

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Don’t legalize animal abuse by overturning state animal welfare laws.

Hard-won victories against animal cruelty, and the rights of the individual states who have passed anti-cruelty laws, are under attack by Republicans in Congress with the introduction of two new bills. These bills, introduced by Representatives Steve King (R-IA) and James Sensenbrenner (R-WI), seek to force states and localities to allow the sale of animal products produced in inhumane ways, even if the state already has measures in place forbidding the sale of such abusive products. As the Humane Society of the United States has pointed out, this poses a significant and tangible threat to animals across the entire nation.

If these bills pass into law, the consequences would be severe. For instance, states like Louisiana could lose the rules they have in place against the sale of sick and abused dogs from puppy mills. California could be forced to allow the sale of foie gras, a cruel “delicacy” made by brutally force-feeding ducks until their livers become grossly enlarged. Bans on the sale of horse meat in states like Indiana could be overturned.

Unfortunately, the Trump family and his administration have a long history of supporting animal abuse. Trump’s sons are fanatical hunters, including the killing exotic animals, and his administration has purged animal abuse records and concealed them from public view.

These cruel bills must not be passed. Sign below to demand that this attempt to legalize animal abuse be rejected.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Donald Trump,

Newly introduced Republican bills threaten not only the well-being of innocent animals nationwide, but also the rights of states with animal welfare legislation already in place. The bills would force states to allow the cruel mistreatment of animals for the sake of selling products.

For example, California could be forced to allow the sale of foie gras in spite of the state law banning it. States could be compelled to allow sick and abused dogs to be sold from puppy mills, and dogs and horses to be killed for their meat. As the Humane Society stated in its call to action, “Rep. King has been fighting animal welfare laws at the federal level, and now he’s attacking them in the states. In short, he doesn’t want any animal welfare laws, and we cannot let him get away with it.”

I urge you to heed the Humane Society’s call and to protect animals across the nation by ensuring that these disgusting bills do not pass.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Cannot WAIT for the tweeter’s impeachment, plus returning to a majority of Democrats in the Senate and House to pass sane legislation on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. I’m a non-affiliated voter who’s disgusted with the entire administration that thinks nothing of destroying humane policies.

  2. Scott Kosatka says:

    You are aware, I hope, that snowflakes are also guilty of these things as well. The self-righteousness of the extreme-left is most amusing and, yes, I voted for the first half-black president.

  3. Please work to move forward, not slide backward due to disinterest and selfish motives. Strive to do the utmost to push your country to the forefront of civilisation with true desire to better your country and better again for your people so you will be admired and not despised.

    Disgusted! I signed the petition! ???

  7. Nadine Brundage says:

    We should be moving forward on ways to protect voiceless animals instead of going backwards. Close down all puppy mills, enough animals are dying in kill shelters across this country. We should set an example on how our animals are treated. We are not China.

  8. Someone needs to remove the madman that is Donald Trump!

  9. Lilian Caughlin says:

    Animal Wellfare is one area that neeeds constant improvement not less regulations.
    It shouldn’t be a party issue to decide their wellbeing. Any legislation to lessen animal wellfare is a deal killer for me in regards to both parties.

  10. Goddammit are you frickin’ serious right now – here I thought we were on our way to moving forward and eradicating animal testing/cruelty – now we’re moving backwards – what in the absolute frack

  11. Gigi Middlebrook says:

  12. all this cruelty has to stop we have to speak for the ones that can’t speak for themselves this country is supposed to be civilized well then start acting it stop the cruelty to animals now

  13. Donald Trump and his older sons couldn’t care less about abuse and cruelty to animals. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has seen pictures of his sons looking very pleased with themselves with endangered animals that they have killed in Africa.

  14. I happen to be a republican and I voted for Trump simply because I didn’t want to see another Clinton in there. I am apposed to any and ALL animal abuse. I’m a vegetarian and real close to vegan. I have a soy allergy. I don’t believe that the laws are any where NEAR tough enough for animal abusers. just please stick with the subject and stop generalizing. I thought it was wrong to profile? and I signed the petition.

  15. Stop this fukwit Donald Duck. Get rid of him and his inhumane abusive madness now

  16. Poor innocent souls of all these speachless animals been tortured n abused by the WORSE KIND OF CREATURE ON EARTH. THE SINFUL HUMAN KIND!! GOD IS WATCHING ON EACH AND EVERUONE OF US, BAD N GOOD ACTION ON ANIMALS !! PLS HELP STOP ALL ANIMALS ABUSE!! BEST IS, ” STOP EATING MEAT AS WELL”N!!!!

  17. While they’re at it, it doesn’t appear to me to be such a stretch of the imagination that they’ll legalise rape,paedophilia and bestiality….America, how low you’ve stooped….your new catchcry is better worded, “God HELP america”!

  18. Paulette Mirfield says:

    They hate women who don’t ‘know their place’, only like children until they’re born, despise nature unless they can make a buck from it, and now they’re after the fauna as a new income source. Are there no depths they won’t sink to? Evidently not.

  19. Trump needs to be shot along with his family. I’m surprised someone hasn’t done it by now. His parents should’ve practised birth control

  20. Patricia James says:

    Donald Trump…what a prick! This man abd his family should not be allowed to have pets. Sick and disgusting, and America voted him jn ?
