In Defense of Animals Action Alert

California - You Are About To Be Hit With A New Tax On Companion

Please Call The Governor Today!

We are sending this to our California friends and
asking you to please read the following and then make a quick call to

It's no secret that California is in dire need of money, but
the governor is proposing that companion animals be
considered "luxuries" and therefore a 9% to 10% tax should be levied
on services rendered by veterinarians.

While many of us can afford such a tax, others will be pushed beyond
their ability to pay, resulting in the abandonment and relinquishment
to shelters of many animals.

Our shelters are also suffering in these hard times and they can't
absorb such a potential influx of more animals. Nobody's going to
like the result if there is a dramatic decrease in the number of
California homes that can afford companion animals.

What You Can Do Right Now, In Less Than One Minute:

Please protest this tax by calling our Governor in Sacramento.
The number is to an automated survey at the governor's office. The
call is not free, but it It will take less than a minute and will cost
very little.

Dial: 916-445-2841

The numbers to press in response to the questions are: 1 - 5 - 1
- 2 (i.e., 1 = for English; 5 = to transfer to veterinary tax proposal; 1 =
to choose to comment on the veterinary tax proposal; and 2 = to oppose the tax.)

Take a moment and take action NOW. Please ask your
friends to do the same.
