Action Alert
Take ActionUrge CA Senate to oppose bill harmful to stray and feral cats
This action is for residents of California only.
Update: We worked hard, but by a razor-thin margin, the California Senate voted yesterday to pass S.B. 250. 
Earlier this week, we asked concerned California residents like you to take action against this bill because it targets cats owned by lower-income owners and cared for by feral cat caregivers.  And you took action, sending almost 7,000 letters urging California Senators to oppose the bill.  Your voices were clearly heard, but unfortunately the bill - which was sponsored by the Senate Majority Leader - passed by just one vote.
When we heard the news, were disappointed, and we know you are too. But remember: S.B. 250 is not the law.  S.B. 250 has only passed the Senate; it has not passed the Assembly or been signed into law by the Governor.  Alley Cat Allies will continue to fight for the interests of cats, and we will work hard to oppose this bill in the state Assembly.  We will continue to monitor legislation in California, and we will let you know when more action is needed.
Thank you for your efforts on behalf of California's cats.

Dear Mandi,

Each and every day we talk to folks who are trying to decide whether or not to put their beloved companion through harsh chemical or radiation treatments that seem to make vulnerable pets sicker in order to kill whatever ails them. The decision is never easy. 

We offer help that can boost your dog's ability to tolerate those severe therapies while also supporting their natural power to regain their health. K-9 Immunity tends to increase the efficacy of other treatment options.

Cancer is a serious disease, and if you wish to add K-9 Immunity to your dog's treatment, you should discuss it with your veterinarian. Fortunately, more and more veterinarians are seeing the benefits of a complementary approach to wellness.


K-9 Immunity Success Stories

"I wanted to send another note of thanks to you and Aloha Medicinals for sending your fabulous products for our sweet Kobi...We began a second round of chemo in January, and he's doing very well.

- Lisa"

"I am writing to say thank you for your excellent product, K9 Immunity. I have a 10 year old Norwegian Elkhound, Mohawk, who was diagnosed with lymphoma last May. We went through a 20 week chemo Wisconsin protocol and he unfortunately relapsed this past January. I found your product during December and decided to add your regimen as a supplement to his second round of chemo (10 week modified Wisconsin).

It is amazing the difference in his quality of life this second time around - both times he went into remission quickly and was generally healthy but was plagued with *constant* diarrhea and lack of appetite during the first round. We are in week 8 of the second round and he is eating like a horse and has had *zero* diarrhea this time.

All the best,
- Michele"

The gratitude of our customers is not only heartwarming, but we hope passing on a few of the many stories we hear all the time will give comfort and inspire hope and action in others.

Every day is critical when your dog has cancer. Take action now and Click here to order K9 Immunity  and K9 Transfer Factor. (And don't forget - we want to hear about your success story!)
