What You Can Do To Help
Chicago is facing city wide MSN. As with California, it will not stay there but spread. Please take a few minutes to help dog owners in Chicago and PASS THE WORD
FWD from AASD:
It is very important for dog owners to take action before Tuesdays committee meeting. This ordinance can be stopped if strong opposition Adminses from every neighborhood in Chicago, and from all segments of the dog community.
Please contact local organizers to coordinate. They are Karen Perry ([email protected]) and Michele Smith ([email protected]).
Next, please contact your friends and members and officers of any clubs or organizations you belong to that can help. These include dog clubs, sportsmens clubs, farmers groups and firearms rights organizations. Hunters, farmers and firearms enthusiasts know that these kinds of laws stem from an animal rights groups that also want to eliminate hunting, raising animals for food and the right to keep and bear arms.
It is very important to contact members of the City Council committee before Tuesday. Letters sent by surface mail are the most effective, followed by faxes and phone calls. Emails are the least effective. Even if they are brief, personal letters are much more effective than form letters.
