Hi, all --
To those of you who love your pets, please go to the following website
and sign their petition, before August 1, 2007, when the website owner
will deliver their petition to Senator Dick Durbin and Representative DeLauro,
sponsors of pet food safety bills that are presently dying in Congressional
committees. Your help is really needed! We need your signatures today!!!
The URL is: http://www.defendourpets.org/petition.html
The petition asks for:
As pet owners deeply affected by the recent tragic deaths
of many of our pets, and the failing health of many, many others,
we ask for your support and assistance in
preventing a recurrence of this disaster.
We ask for:
1 Tougher laws and regulations concerning the quality of pet food sold
2 More stringent inspection of pet food
3 Funding to assure these inspections
4 Certification of foreign inspection standards PRIOR to allowing imports
5 Accurate labeling that shows the quality of ingredients
6 Labeling that shows ingredients from foreign sources
7 A ban on foreign imports if inspection standards are lax
8 Tough penalties for violators
Our pets can't defend themselves against these abuses, so we must!
PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO ANY LOVING PET OWNERS YOU
KNOW. THANK YOU. YOUR SIGNATURE IS NEEDED!!!!
