Action Alerts, News of Note & Community Events, now on the NARN Blog

The NARN Blog will now be the place to go to see Action Alerts, News of Note about Animal Issues, as well as Community Events that are either directly related to Animal Rights issues, or events that we thought might be of interest to NARN’s membership.

Keep checking the NARN Blog, or even subscribe, as it will now be updated a few times a week with News Stories and Action Alerts.  This will allow us to post items of interest in a more timely manner rather than waiting for the Weekly Email to roll out.

Out first Action Alert is from the good folks at Save Washington Pets:

Support Spay Neuter Assistance Legislation
Spay/Neuter Assistance Bill (SB 5329/HB 1406) has been proposed by Save Washington Pets, and will fund approximately 70,000 spay/neuter surgeries per year.
The bill has been sitting in the senate and house agriculture committees since hearings were held last session. These committees need to act on this bill by voting it out of committee in the 2010 session. Only then does the bill survive and have a chance to proceed toward a vote by the whole house and senate.
Take Action
Please contact your state legislator, and let them know you support the Spay/Neuter Assistance Bill (SB 5329/HB 1406).

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
