TARGET: NV State Senator Mike McGinness and NV State Assemblyman Ed Goedheart
we've got signatures,
help us get to 5,000

Every yr, 1,000's of baby bunnies, ducklings, and chicks are bought. Unfortunately, most die within the first few days, wks, and months, from mishandling, neglect, or from being abandoned in parks, backyards, or shelters. The majority of them are bought during the months of March and April as Easter gifts. Pet and Feed stores are even going as far as dyeing these animals pastel colors to attract people to buy them, treating these helpless, living beings as novelty items. As well as raising awareness against the impulse buying of these animals, we're also presenting a bill request to our state legislature to prevent the purchase of ducklings and chicks to be sold individually, which would ultimately reduce, and even eliminate the number of neglected, abandoned, and killed animals. Bunnies are not included in the bill request, as we believe, they make great house pets. In helping our efforts, PLEASE sign and share our petition, so together we can spread the word about this avoidable dilemma! This is a nationwide problem that WE, as animal lovers and advocates, can STOP, together! Join us and Make a Difference for the animals! *Twitter hashtag #AdoptaPlushie
