Oklahoma: Protect Puppies and Your City's Rights!

Oklahoma: Protect Puppies and Your City's Rights!

As you may know, most puppies sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, cruel breeding facilities that prioritize profit over the health and well-being of animals. Dogs in these operations are often kept in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions without adequate veterinary care, food, water or socialization.

To date, nearly 300 local governments across the nation have enacted laws to keep cruelly bred puppies out of their community’s pet stores

However, the Oklahoma State House is considering Senate Bill 950, a dangerous bill that will strip local governments of their ability to make these important decisions and instead empower bureaucrats in Oklahoma City to decide what is best for your community. 

This bill has already passed the Senate. We need your help to stop it from passing in the House, too.

What You Can Do

This bill is moving quickly and could be considered before the House Rules Committee any day now, so please don’t delay. Please take these two quick actions today:

1. Call your state representative and ask him or her to oppose S.B. 950. If you don’t know who represents you in the Oklahoma House of Representatives, you can find your lawmaker's name and phone number here.

2. Send a follow-up email to your state representative with the same message of opposition by filling out the form below.

Thank you, Oklahoma.
