CVAS and all animal lovers thank Sen. Rich Alloway for his strong support of SB 626, which would ban live pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania, and HB 1750, which would prohibit the use of cats and dogs for food, and prohibit owners from using them as targets.  Hard to believe some people consider these a sport, isn't it? United Against Puppy Mills urges residents of Pennsylvania to contact their state legislators and urge them to support House Bill 1750. Sessions of the Senate will continue throughout the weekend (June 28, 29) and a full vote of the General Assemble is scheduled for Monday, June 30th.  Your state senator and representatives as well as their contact info can be found by visiting:


There's some great information about adopting a puppy and what you need to do before you get a pup and after you bring one home. Click here for a wonderful Puppy Manual from Adopt-a-Pet.
