From Best Friends Animal Society:
“Our service men and women fight bravely for our freedom overseas. Upon their return to this country, they should not have to fight to keep their family pets.
In January 2009, the Bush administration issued a memorandum that prohibited a number of breeds of dogs, as well as any dog mixed with those breeds, from living on any Army installation in the country. Most Air Force and Navy installations prohibit dogs based on breed or appearance as well. Today, service men and women are being forced to give up their family pets or move to cost-prohibitive housing away from the military installation merely because of their pet’s appearance. Families are being torn apart becaue of this breed discrminatory policy.
Please follow the links below for a simple way to take action for our brave men and women and their pets.
Politics is not a spectator sport!”
Thank you for taking action for the animals,
