The ‘To Do’ list for this week

I miss my Richmond pit bull friends...

Well, work keeps us busy, the pets keep us busier (and well-loved) and the commute takes way too much time!  But… lets remember to do a few important things this week:

1)  Check out the Best Friends blog post, A Myth-Buster of a Day.

2)  Got puppy mills?  Well consider the fur industry which is a horrible puppy mill for wild animals.  Being ‘fur free’ isn’t even a lifestyle change, since faux-fur is easy to find.  Sign the petition on Care2 to encourage the fur ban movement.  It does work.  West Hollywood has banned the sale of fur in city limits.  Yeah!!!  People really do care about animal welfare.

3) Check out your local ‘Occupy’ movement and find what’s up! Here in Seattle the Occupy rally has a working group for Animal Rights and Environmentalism.

Why is this important?  Reform for animal welfare must go hand-in-hand with reform of our country.  Businesses are not playing fair until animal welfare is considered and adhered too.   Think it can’t happen?  It already is!  The US Humane Society and the United Egg Producers have agreed to work together to improve the welfare of laying hens!   And that leads us to number 4…

4)  Send a letter (don’t worry, it’s an easy online form) to your local lawmaker to encourage them to pass legislation for free-range egg production.
