Ban Devocalization Nationwide

Imagine trying to cry out in warning or excitement, but instead feeling a strangling sensation and hearing your throat rasp harshly.

This happens to countless animals every single day. Annoyed with ceaseless barking or meowing, breeders and pet owners have veterinarians surgically cut or remove the animals' vocal cords. Such procedures create serious health risks for the animal, including hemorrhaging, coughing, gagging, aspiration, trouble swallowing, and breathing problems.

Sign this petition to ban the painful surgery that, by maiming an animal's vocal chords, destroys the natural quality of life it was meant to live.
