PLEASE OPPOSE SB 762 AND PRESERVE ANTI-DECLAW LAWS IN CALIFORNIA
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY WRITTEN TO THE GOVERNOR....PLEASE DO IT AGAIN. MANY OR MOST OF MESSAGES SENT WERE NOT CORRECTLY RECORDED!
California bill SB 762 is on the desk of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger NOW. This bill would eliminate the right of California cities to prohibit declawing and other non-therapeutic procedures on animals. http://www.californiaanimalassociation.com/bills/bills.html
Please help California cities retain their right to ban declawing by OPPOSING SB 762.
Please urge Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to VETO SB 762. You can write, phone, and fax the governor at:

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
State Capitol Building
Sacramento, CA 95814
Phone: 916-445-2841
Fax: 916-558-3160

Submitting an e-mail to the Governor is a two-step process. Step One:

  • First, select the purpose of your email by clicking the "Have Comment" button.
  • Then fill in your contact information, first and last names and e-mail address.
  • Next, go to "PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR SUBJECT" and click on the drop-down menu and select "Animal issues/concerns."
  • Click the "SUBMIT" button and you be taken to a new window.
Step Two:
  • In step two, click the "Con" button, then type in you e-mail message.
  • E-mail from California residents obviously carries more weight, so if you are a California resident, please indicate that fact or list the California city where you live.
  • Please personalize your message. Keep it short and polite. Your e-mail message might read:
Please veto SB 762. This bill would eliminate the right of cities to prohibit certain non-therapeutic procedures on animals, even when performed by veterinarians, when their inhabitants find them to unnecessary and inhumane. The courts have stated that such procedures are incidental to the practice of veterinary medicine and that banning them is not regulation of veterinary practice. I believe decisions regarding the humane treatment of animals should remain the prerogative of local governments and their citizens. Thank you.
