From the Stopthesuffering folks:
The puppy/kitten mill bill – S.F. 7 – is going to be heard in the Senate Agriculture Committee on Tuesday, January 27. Please call all of the members on the committee before Tuesday and ask them to vote in favor of S.F. 7 and not to accept any amendments that would weaken it. Also, ask them not to support a weaker bill that may be heard. We need to protect Minnesota dogs and cats who are forced to live in substandard and deplorable conditions.
Below is a list of the members and their phone numbers. IMPORTANT - If you are a constituent of a committee member listed below, be sure he/she knows that.
