Education Is Key

Even though I am not a Missouri citizen I am 100% supporting the passing of Proposition B. We need to educate as many people as possible about Prop B facts and myths. I urge you to go to the Missouri Alliance For Animal Legislation website to read about Prop B and to get the REAL facts on what this initiative actually means. I have read it over and over again, I still can't understand why someone would oppose it unless you are a puppymill even reputable breeders should want to stop these millers that are giving them a bad name. Since I can't vote in the State of Missouri, I will do what I can to get this information out there. We will be one step closer to trying to keep these precious lives safer and healthier.

There is also a huge need to always spread the word about spay and neuter. I can't say it enough and more than likely it will be my last dying words. Its not cruel to spay or neuter your pets, they actually live longer, healthier lives if they are spayed/neutered and vaccinated properly. Not to mention they tend to not develop really bad habits such as hiking their leg on the furniture, running off, and having aggression issues. If spay/neuter is to much of a financial burden think twice before you get a pet, OR visit websites like a wonderful program called Operation Spot they frequently offer low cost spay/neuter AND vaccinations.

Now that I have finished my rant :) I wanted all to know that Gemma has made it to Nebraska today and gets to start a new journey where hopefully she will realize life isn't that bad, when your with someone who cares. If you could witness Gemma in action, you would understand why Prop B is SO important, had she been given basic care while at the miller, she probably would have been a different dog. I urge you to do your homework on this initiative and PLEASE vote YES for Prop B, because the animals can't.

  1. It's such a cut and dry proposition - everything is defined but the opposition is using a lot of scare tactics and convincing people it'll affect rescues, livestock, farmers, etc, etc. If people voted on the facts only, there would be no way this could be defeated. Everyone get out and vote YES on Prop B in November!!
