We need your help again!

Those two PRO PUPPY MILL bills masquerading as positive changes are up for review in Springfield this week. Read more about this pending legislation that would undo all the work we’ve done in Chicago and Cook County in this post from Steve Dale.

We had nearly 1500 people fill out Witness Slips OPPOSING the Illinois House bill last week. It was amazing. Now we need you to fill out the same thing for both the House bill AND the Senate bill. We know we can get over 2000 easily.

Please do this and then share, share, share!!!
