Best Friends Speak Out Against Amendment One in Missouri .......

From Best Friends:
Best Friends Animal Society
MO Voters: On August 5, you can help protect dogs in puppy mills
Dear Friends:
On August 5, you will have the opportunity to cast your vote on a very important issue for animals. Constitutional Amendment 1, the misleadingly named “Right to Farm” amendment, is an effort to dismiss the voice of Missouri voters and prevent any state rules to regulate agriculture — including puppy mills.
The “Right to Farm” amendment’s vague language doesn’t tell us who is protected, or from what. By allowing foreign-owned corporations to do anything they want on Missouri land, this amendment allows big agribusiness to write its own rules and ignore the will of the people and their elected representatives.

This is a dangerous and unnecessary effort that has the ability to reverse all of the progress made to protect dogs in Missouri’s puppy mills. It will not protect Missouri’s family farms, but will instead strip Missourians of their rights and weaken existing and future laws to regulate puppy mills.
On August 5, please vote NO on the dangerous and unnecessary “Right to Farm” amendment.
Thank you for speaking up for animals. Together, we can Save Them All.
Warmest regards,
Elizabeth O.
National Manager, puppy mill initiatives
