Help Animals in the State Budget

We need your help on two issues being debated next week in the House budget!

Ask your state representative to co-sponsor amendment #85

This amendment would ensure the Massachusetts Animal Fund can fund spaying, neutering, and vaccinations for animals in need in the Commonwealth! This budget amendment filed by Rep. Lou Kafka would allocate $100,000 from the state budget for the Fund. Last year, an additional 712 animals from 169 municipalities across Massachusetts were helped with a similar amendment! Currently, a wait list exists and many animals are going unserved, lacking critical health services.

Ask your state representative to oppose amendment #485

For wildlife and nature enthusiasts, mountain bikers, hikers, horseback riders, trail runners, bird-watchers, and families and their companion animals, Sunday provides an invaluable one-day respite during hunting season to enjoy the safety and serenity of the state’s natural resources. Amendment #485 filed by Rep. William Straus would allow bow hunting for deer, including on Sundays, which are traditionally understood by the public to be the one day a week that individuals and families can be in the woods safely during hunting season.
