AB 1634
PROMOTED AS THE CALIFORNIA HEALTHY PETS ACT

 

IS REALLY... The Pet Extinction Act
 

 
If you haven't already heard, California is in the process of pushing through a Bill that would inevitably do away with all pets.  AB1634, introduced by Assemblymember Lloyd Levine [Democrat - Van Nuys] passed the Assembly on June 7, 2007 41 Yes 38 No, and is now headed for the Senate as it makes its way through Sacramento.

AB1634 began it's journey in February 2007 which is when our club went into action, joined with many other breeds, dog fanciers and pet owners of all kinds.  Ted Crawford, President CKCSCSC made two trips up to Sacramento with hundreds of others as they made their way through the halls of the Capital, visiting the various members trying to educate them about the truth behind the Bill.

AB1634 is largely supported by the various Animal Rights groups such as PETA.  What is marketed as a simple spay and neuter Bill is really a pet extinction Bill.


RALLY IN SACRAMENTO


HUNDREDS SHOWED UP TO OPPOSE THE BILL

As you read through the Bill you will see many areas describing exemptions for show dogs, working dogs, police dogs etc.  If you read carefully, you will soon see that the requirements in order to qualify for these exemptions are impossible to meet.

Wednesday May 9, 2007 the CKCSCSC debuted "The Dog Law Blog"  Our blog quickly moved to #1 amongst the Dog Fancy for up to the minute News on AB1634 with as many as 27,000 visitors in one day.   The blog averages 22,000 visitors a day as the dog community stays on top of the latest news.

The next important date is Wednesday July 11, 2007 when it is heard in the Senate.  A Rally will follow at the Capital.

On the Blog you can see where we have been, where we are, and where we are headed.  You can download the podcast of the KFI John and Ken Interview with Ted Crawford [and Stephanie Hart] and find links to many resources on the Bill.  There are instruction on how you can help and what we all need to do next.
