When Governor Rick Perry

of every Texas citizen, not just dog breeders.

June 2011 -

Last week Rick Perry said on network news that he is

"thinking about" running for President. Rush

Limbaugh said Perry for President would be a "game changer" and

 

      click to share this article    

 

regardless of party affiliation, most Americans

 

      click to share this article    

 

would agree. Perry is powerful. And he's a busy guy,

 

      click to share this article    

 

what with all the thinking and strategizing going on

 

      click to share this article    

 

in his camp. He doesn't have time to read every word

of every bill that someone with a vested interest

But every animal owner in Texas

 

      click to share this article    

 

has better take time to read this.  HB 1451,

 

      click to share this article    

 

introduced by two Democrats, "establishes a new

state bureaucracy to regulate home dog and cat

 

      click to share this article    

 

breeders mandating inspections of private property,

 

      click to share this article    

 

large fees and enormous fines. The new law allows

the right of entry into citizens' homes without

warrant and without the owners' presence and

reporting dog and cat breeders to the Texas

Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR.) The

bill regulates law abiding Texas citizens and

hampers economic and business growth in order to

 

      click to share this article    

 

promote the private agenda of heavily financed

special interest groups. The HSUS/ASPCA/PETA backed

 

      click to share this article    

 

bill violates personal property rights,

 

      click to share this article    

 

contradicting key values that Governor Perry

professes to uphold and important principles of his

message loud and clear. That is, if dog and cat

owners care enough to fight for their pets - and for

"HB 1451 is not written to regulate dog and cat

breeders, but to eliminate them. Tell Rick Perry

 

      click to share this article    

 

this is Texas and not California! If he doesn't veto

this bill, we'll remember at election time! Tell him

you own dogs and/or cats and you vote in every

"HB 1451 was not written for Texas and is being

 

      click to share this article    

 

steamrolled all across the country by HSUS, an

 

      click to share this article    

 

animal "rights" organization. In 2005 HSUS failed to

 

      click to share this article    

 

get PAWS, a federal bill, passed to license every

 

      click to share this article    

 

dog breeder in the U.S. and vowed to take it to the

 

      click to share this article    

 

states. Senator Rick Santorum sponsored the HSUS

 

      click to share this article    

 

bill and lost his next election.

"HB 1451 was defeated last session. Texas Humane

Legislation Network (THLN) is the Texas lapdog for

 

      click to share this article    

 

HSUS and responsible for the extreme animal "rights"

 

      click to share this article    

 

legislation we face each legislative session. Last

 

      click to share this article    

 

November's elections have shown that voters want an

 

      click to share this article    

 

open transparent

 

      click to share this article    

 

government and we certainly didn't see that with

 

      click to share this article    

 

this bill.

 

      click to share this article    

 

The bill was rammed through by Rep.

 

      click to share this article    

 

Thompson and Senator Whitmire - same sponsors as

 

      click to share this article    

 

last session. Every legislative rule in the book was

 

      click to share this article    

 

broken; meeting notice requirements suspended, etc.

 

      click to share this article    

 

Allegedly Rep. Thompson threatened to block any

bills from going through her Local & Consent

Calendar Committee if legislators didn't support her

Folks, that is what you saw happen to the Medicare

 

      click to share this article    

 

Bill aka Obama Care, and other federal bills.

 

      click to share this article    

 

Secret sessions behind closed doors, then legislators

 

      click to share this article    

 

are forced to vote on something they don't care

 

      click to share this article    

 

about or haven't read. That is the way "politics" is

 

      click to share this article    

 

done since before the turn of the century. Democrat,

 

      click to share this article    

 

Republican, Libertarian, Tea Party supporter, it

 

      click to share this article    

 

doesn't matter, we can't let the HSUS, PETA, and

 

      click to share this article    

 

other animal rights groups subvert our political

process and thereby change the face of America.

      click to share this article    

 

"Every legislator who voted "Aye" on HB 1451 has

 

      click to share this article    

 

been recorded and will be publicized extensively

 

      click to share this article    

 

through many web sites in Texas and elsewhere. 

 

      click to share this article    

 

President Cile Holloway, Texas Humane Legislation

 

      click to share this article    

 

Network, has publicly stated they wanted to get

 

      click to share this article    

 

"anything" passed this session and come back

 

      click to share this article    

 

later. Senator Whitmire said the bill will be back

 

      click to share this article    

 

next session. HB 1451 is only the beginning -- not

 

      click to share this article    

 

the end. "The standards adopted under this section

 

      click to share this article    

 

must at a minimum meet federal USDA regulations."

 

      click to share this article    

 

The only breeders who can meet these standards are

 

      click to share this article    

 

the existing 36 USDA licensed facilities in Texas.

 

      click to share this article    

 

There will be no more breeder licenses sold unless

 

      click to share this article    

 

expensive new facilities are built. With pet stores

 

      click to share this article    

 

banned in Austin and El Paso, the handwriting is on

the wall.

 

      click to share this article    

 


 

      click to share this article    

 

"The exemptions hastily added to the bill at the

 

      click to share this article    

 

last minute are meaningless and will have to be

 

      click to share this article    

 

defined in the court system. Dogs "bred for hunting,

 

      click to share this article    

 

herding, tracking, chasing, pointing, flushing, or

 

      click to share this article    

 

retrieving game, competing in field trials, hunting

 

      click to share this article    

 

tests, or similar organized performance

 

      click to share this article    

 

events" is ambiguous and not defined anywhere.

 

      click to share this article    

 

Selling any puppies from those litters as family

 

      click to share this article    

 

"pets" is questionable.

"Since the Breeder License is renewed annually, a

 

      click to share this article    

 

dog that qualifies one year may not qualify in

 

      click to share this article    

 

subsequent years. The rules are yet to be written by

 

      click to share this article    

 

an Advisory Committee which will undoubtedly be

 

      click to share this article    

 

stacked with THLN members. Della Lindquist, an

attorney with Texas Department of Licensing &

 

      click to share this article    

 

Regulation (the agency that helped write and will

 

      click to share this article    

 

interpret/enforce the law) has been exposed as an

 

      click to share this article    

 

Austin animal "rights" extremist.

 

      click to share this article    

 


 

      click to share this article    

 

"The bill refers only to "dog and cat breeder" now

 

      click to share this article    

 

with all reference to "commercial and high volume

 

      click to share this article    

 

breeder" removed. It was always meant to apply

 

      click to share this article    

 

to show dog and cat breeders and exhibitors. There

 

      click to share this article    

 

is no legal definition of a "Puppy Mill."

"This legislative session has seen bills filed to

 

      click to share this article    

 

eventually end ALL dog and cat breeding, sterilize

every dog and cat in the state and establish a "Pet

 

      click to share this article    

 

Abuser Registry" to elevate animals to human status
