"Animal welfare, not animal 'rights'
and, yes, there is a difference."

There'll be no "Doggie in the Window" ... or anywhere else for that matter
if these radical "animal rights" extremists have their way. No breeding, no
sales, no pets.
Austin City Council is poised to vote on a ban on all pet store sales of
dogs and cats at their meeting Thursday, December 16th, beginning at 10:00
am, 301 W. Second Street. Who will be next?

The extremists' new mantra is to "stop the sales" - no matter what the
species of pets and no matter where pets are sold eventually. "One
generation and out," as HSUS Vegan Prez Wayne Pacelle says.

Tell Austin City Council members to vote "No" to this pet sale ban. Tell
them that if ordinances are truly written for animal welfare or for public
health and safety, they should apply to every organization handling animals
in the city: the city's very own animal control facility Town Lake Animal
Center, local humane societies and all rescuers. Why are these groups
exempt? Why don't they need a Health Certificate and pay a $50 Fee? A sale
is a sale, according to the state comptroller's office with sales tax due
from everyone, including rescuers.
