Action Alert
Take Action MI: Protect Canine Victims of Cruelty
Support legislation that promotes second chances and saves lives

Dear Members and Supporters:

Currently, Michigan is one of only 13 states that automatically doom dogs rescued from animal fighters. A humane bill (SB 990) being introduced by Senators Pappageorge, Brandenburg, Colbeck and Hune will save lives by requiring individual evaluation for dogs who have been victims of such cruelty. In essence, the bill allows for the owning, adopting and transferring of a dog seized in a fight bust, if the dog or puppy is fit for placement. Canine victims of cruelty should not automatically be condemned for the crimes of their owners.

Every dog is an individual and should be judged by his or her behavior. This humane bill would also require agencies taking custody of fight-bust animals to give notice to the dogs' owner and require that the owner post a security deposit to cover the cost of the dogs' care.

Politics is not a spectator sport. Please take action below to send a letter today asking your state representative and state senator to support this important legislation.

Together, we can change perceptions to Save Them All.

Sincerely,

Ledy VanKavage, Esq.
Sr. Legislative Attorney
