We need your help! The commissioners are seriously considering renewing the county's contract with the Class B dealer. In order for us to be more effective, and hopefully put an end once and for all to this barbaric practice, the commissioners need to hear from as many individuals as possible! If you are against the county's contract with the Class B dealer, please feel free to copy and paste the letter below, or put your own words in the comments box and hit "send"! When signing your letter, please include your address so they know where the letters are coming from.

Copy and paste:

As a citizen of Montcalm County I am against using our pets for research purposes. I am urging you to end our county's association with the Class B research dealer. It is unnecessary and it is wrong. We are better than this. Please do not renew this contract.

Noted and thanks Simone. Being a non resident of Montcalm I needed to delete the following:

We, the undersigned residents of the County of Montcalm, are against giving animals from our county's animal shelter to a Class B dealer.

Unfortunately the system wouldn't allow it so I was unable to sign.
