NYS Devocalization Bill: Loopholes That Hurt Animals
Do you know why a law allowing devocalization ("bark softening") for "medical necessity" would hurt dogs and cats?
Or how a law allowing it as a "last resort" or "final alternative to euthanasia" would cause even more animals to suffer and die?
We've been forewarned by NYS legislators that the pending devocalization bill will NOT become law without amendments such as these, pushed by powerful special interests that profit from dog/cat devocalization.
They are loopholes--subtle, ever-evolving and dangerous to animals. Scroll down, learn more, to protect dogs and cats.
The only way the devocalization ban should become law is in the same form it left the Assembly on January 23. NO amendments.
Here are 3 amendments that would HURT animals.

I'd like to rip their throats out - would that irritate them enough?

Nice that you mention that your dog is singing , Tasunka.
My mother was a professional classic singer. She studied always at home and our 2 dogs were always among the piano. But some aria's they loved so much that they began to sing also. We had always so much fun with that. Now I recall it to me again , my tears flows over my face. My mom and the 2 dogs already died but gifts me beautiful and joyful memories.
The devocalization supporters will never have that kind of memories.....
l have taught my dog to sing,what an atrocity to make them mute.
Only human scum can think these atrocities up,for their own convenience!
and Lenicka that makes perfect "non" sense that one torture gave birth to another.

Signed , letter sent , shares on FB.
It is a ' surgery' that originally came from the vivisection torturers.
That was more comfortable for them when they torture the animals.
How can anyone ever support such a gruesome act.
Voices Stolen - AVMA Devocalization Policy Will Hurt Dogs And Cats ! PLEASE TAKE ACTION ! !

To Whom It Concerns,
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has historically sanctioned the cutting of vocal cords to mask a dog’s or cat’s voice. Despite public outcry against devocalization in recent years, the AVMA Executive Board has proposed a new policy that will further entrench veterinary support for this practice, widely considered an act of animal cruelty.
On January 3, 2013, the AVMA will vote on a policy that will potentially protect veterinary, breeding, and animal-testing profits, but leave dogs and cats vulnerable to devocalization.
Stop justifying cruelty. No vet should cut vocal cords to stifle a dog’s or cat’s voice! No veterinary association should condone it.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this urgent appeal.

What selfish cruel small minded excuses for human beings. These are just the types who should not have a dog - I'd like to rip out their tongues and vocal chords and see how they like it. I would not want to hear their repugnant opinions anyway.Why in god's name is it not illegal as it is here and why would any self respecting vet actually perform such a mutilation? I would not want such a vet even taking my dog's pulse.

Barking is a dog's means of communicating many feelings—fear, frustration, pain, boredom, or even happiness. This cruel procedure strips dogs of their natural ability to vocalize and communicate. Depriving them of their primary means of expression is unjustifiably cruel.
Debarking, or devocalization, is an invasive surgical procedure that involves removing a large amount of laryngeal tissue. It involves a great deal of postoperative pain. Because this procedure is unnecessary and inherently cruel, many veterinarians condemn it and refuse to perform it.
