Thank you all for spreading the word about Proposition 2 and especially to those who voted on Nov. 4 in California. The important ballot initiatives was passed yesterday, making history for animals (as well as for electing the first ever African-American president of the U.S.). It will ban some of the worst cruelty to animals raised for food in that state. Read more here… Peta article or Humane Society article

 

In Massachusetts, Question 3 ballot was also passed, which will ban greyhound racing in that state and completely abolished by 2010. 

Both victories give us hope that other states may follow in the years to come.

Thank goodness for people who still cares about animals in these tough times. There are so many critical and pressing issues in America we need to prioritize for people however it’s amazing that there is a huge voice for animals in the world. Together we can make the world a better place for people AND animals….

    Question-where will all those greyhounds go now that they can’t be used for racing? What if some end up at a shelter where they are eventually put to sleep? Do you want that on your conscience?
