Rally to Save MO’s Prop B in Jefferson City this Wednesday!

April 18th, 2011 8:48 pm by Kelly


Just a quick note to let our local readers know that there’s a rally planned in support of Proposition B (otherwise known as the “Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act”) planned in Jefferson City this Wednesday, April 20th. While Prop B passed with 51.6 percent of the vote, Missouri state legislators have since approved a “rewrite” of the bill, which will significant weaken the already-anemic protections afforded to dogs bred and sold in the state. Prop B proponents are now asking Governor Nixon to veto the bill.

Here are the rally deets, via Missourians for the Protection of Dogs:

Last week the Missouri House of Representatives passed its repeal legislation, and now the fate of Prop B, and of Missouri’s many suffering dogs, rests with Governor Jay Nixon.

We’re planning a rally Wednesday to get our voice out and to ask him to veto SB 113:

Rally to Save Prop B
Wednesday, April 20 at 4 p.m.
100 Madison St
Jefferson City, MO 65101
Buses provided from St. Louis and Kansas City
Click here to RSVP.

Gov. Nixon needs to know that we will not sit idly by while some career politicians and their special interests try to overturn the will of the people and authorize cruel and inhumane treatment of thousands of dogs and puppies. Your attendance at this rally is critical — please RSVP.

All that is required of you is your presence. We’ll have signs and t-shirts with special messages that the Governor can’t ignore. If you’re in St. Louis or Kansas City, you can jump on the free Humane Train: buses will depart at 12:30 from St. Louis and Kansas City. Please RSVP so we keep a spot for you on the bus.

If Governor Nixon signs this legislation — defying the will of the people and turning the clock back on the humane treatment of Missouri puppies and dogs — we will not back down. We will also be prepared to file a referendum to bring this issue back to Missouri voters and allow the people to have the final say. But we hope it won’t come to that — Governor Nixon can veto this bill, and come out on the side of the humane treatment of animals and the will of Missouri voters.

Please RSVP and join us on Wednesday!
