On Friday afternoon I had the incredible opportunity to appear on HLN’s Issues With Jane Velez-Mitchell to speak out against the proposed pit bull ban in Texas.
You may or may not be aware, but Jane Velez-Mitchell is a passionate animal advocate and has done countless segments speaking up for the voiceless. She’s a strong voice for the animals and we are very lucky she’s on our side with these issues because she is a force to be reckoned with.
Please check out the video, then send Jane and CNN a thank you note for covering such an important topic as this proposed Texas pit bull ban. Keep in mind it’s not easy or comfortable for a celebrity to take a stand on such a hot and controversial topic, and she advocated 100% for the dogs.
I know we’re all very appreciative of the positive national attention Jane just brought our beloved bullies, but how will she ever know just how truly valued and wonderful she is if you don’t speak up and tell her?
I guarantee you that the pro-BSL lunatics are already flooding her inbox with their lies, fear and hate, so, again, let’s even the score: please let her know just how great it is when a person in the national spotlight sticks up for the underdog so valiantly.
Remember, we are talking about two proposals that could mean death to an estimated 328,000 dogs.
The first proposal aims to ban pit bulls ENTIRELY from the state of Texas: DOG HOLOCAUST
The second proposal makes it so expensive to have a pit bull that most families would have no choice but to give up their dogs: DOG HOLOCAUST
With either of the proposed pieces of legislation, failure to comply would result in felony charges and enforcement of the new laws would cost the taxpayers an estimated $31 million dollars a year.
For more information on both Texas proposals, and for ways you can help stop this abomination, see our post HERE.
Thank you, Jane. From me, from Sloane, and from all the dogs you just stood up for.
