Urge the Massachusetts Senate
to Crack Down on Animal Fighting

Dear Friend,

GREAT NEWS! The Massachusetts House has just passed H. 1765, which contains provisions to crack down on animal fighting! As you may know, the fight to end animal fighting experienced a setback when the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts struck the Dog Protection Act from the November 2006 ballot. With the passage of H. 1765 by the House, we still have a chance this year to strengthen animal fighting laws in Massachusetts. Click here to take action!
H. 1765 will prohibit breeding animals for fighting and authorize the seizure of animal fighting paraphernalia and animals used for breeding. The 2006 legislative session is drawing to a close, and it is urgent that the Senate pass this humane legislation immediately.
Call your state senator and urge him or her to support H. 1765 and crack down on illegal animal fighting.
Making a phone call is simple -- you will likely speak to a staff person who can take your message and pass it along to your representative. Be sure to leave your name and address so it is clear that you are a constituent.

Click here to look up your state senator, his or her phone number, and send an email.

Please tell your friends and family in Massachusetts how they can help stop cruel dogfights.

Thank you for taking action on behalf of animals.


Mike Markarian
Executive Vice President, The Humane Society of the United States
