Please Help Me----

I would like to ask your help. New York State Senate is about to vote on a bill that would increase the punishment for people who run puppy mills, fight animals, etc. Basically, this law would increase the crime to a felony for people who torture, beat, injure or kill, or deprive food or drink to 10 or more animals at a time.

Please politely urge your senator to support S913.

Then sleep a little better tonight knowing that you have given innocent animals a chance to live.

If you do not know what to write, here is a copy of what I wrote to my Senator:

Dear Senator Onorato:
I would like to take a second of your time and urge you to support Senate Bill 913. If it becomes law, S913 will make it a felony to torture, cruelly beat, unjustifiably injure or kill, or deprive of adequate food or drink to 10 or more animals at a time.
As you may know, animal abusers who wrong large numbers of animals—including animal hoarders, puppy-mill operators, and those who fight dogs and birds—are notoriously unlikely to end their cruel ways, especially when they only face misdemeanor charges. This piece of legislation would ensure that such criminals are appropriately charged for their cruel acts.
Thank you so much for taking a stance on this important issue. It is important that we New Yorkers speak up for those who have no voice to speak for themselves.
Best Wishes,Daniel Meredith
