I've said it for a long time now: if we are going to win the war for our rights regarding our animals, it's crucial that we all stick together and that includes farmers and dog people alike.
There is currently a war being waged on the very hands that feed us, yes, YOU! And your dogs. The target isn't just dog breeders anymore, America's farmers are being threatened by the radical animal rights group, the Humane Society of the United States.
Just as the HSUS knows NOTHING about animal husbandry issues relating to dog breeding, they know LESS about what it takes to care for and raise good healthy food for Americans. That's why the farmers in Ohio have taken the bull by the horns and are proposing the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board whereby decisions concerning the care and raising of livestock would actually be made by those that KNOW and not by a multi-million dollar animal rights front group, the Humane Society of the United States.
HSUS has waged war on Ohio farmers and now the FARMERS are fighting back. THEY NEED OUR HELP! If you are a resident of Ohio, it is CRITICAL that you contact your state Representative AND your state Senator and tell them YOU SUPPORT Ohio's farmers' and the Ohio Farm Bureau and to please VOTE YES on SJR 6 and HJR 6. The vote is Wednesday, June 24!
Dog owners and breeders, this is a call to ACTION. How many times have you lamented "What can I do?" "We have to stop HSUS!"....NOW is the chance to STOP the 900lb HSUS gorilla in Ohio. Even if you are not a resident, please take a moment and write or call the Ohio legislators and tell them that you support farming and that decisions regarding farming and farm animals belong with those that know best: REAL FARMERS, not the Humane Society of the United States.
