Help strengthen WA animal cruelty laws

i Apr 20th by

ACTION ALERT!

A dangerous last-minute amendment to Senate Bill SB 5501 threatens to push back years of progress toward ending animal cruelty.

Overall, SB 5501 strengthens animal cruelty laws. But the amendment, known as Section 7, does the opposite and makes it easy for animal cruelty and neglect to go unpunished.

Section 7 will eliminate protections under current law for abused and neglected farmed animals owned by backyard “farmers” and hobbyists – leaving these animals totally vulnerable and unprotected.

TAKE ACTION:
Please urge Governor Inslee to VETO Section 7 and pass the remainder of SB 5501 into law.

  1. Email Governor Inslee
  2. Call his office:  360-902-4111

Don’t let them push back our progress to end animal cruelty. Please take 2 minutes to urge Governor Inslee to VETO Section 7 of SB 5501 today!
