Subject: Get to know your new representatives!
The NC Legislative website is updated with our new 2011-2012 legislators! It is important that animal advocates send an email of introduction to new legislators and remind those that were here last year that we will continue to work on
animal welfare issues
in this new session.
Find your reps here!
Please reach out to your representative both in the NC House and Senate and let them know that you are concerned with animal welfare in NC. There has never been a more critical time for you to contact representatives! The landscape of our legislature has changed drastically, and we need to make sure that new members are aware of the large animal advocate community in NC. By introducing yourself now, you will open the door for communication as we move into the legislative session for 2011. These are the people that you will be contacting when our bills are up for a vote. We must create a solid foundation that is respectful and constructive. Even if your representative is not new, it is still a good time to contact them and let them know what we will be working to accomplish in 2011.
Hi. I am ___ from ___. You are my representative and I want you to know that I am concerned about the following issues in our community:
– NC is now a
puppy mill state
as we have no regulations for commercial
2. Enhancing our
statutes – We must provide tools for law enforcement to stop senseless animal cruelty in NC.
3. Enhancing our felony cock fighting laws- Cock fighting is a form of animal cruelty that brings crime and drugs into our communities.
4. Ban fox and coyote penning – This is a “sport” that combines dog fighting with
, both of which are illegal in NC.
I look forward to working with you in the 2011 session to address these concerns.
