Massachusetts Legislation for Dogs
A Plea from Mike Markarian, President of the Humane Society Legislative Fund
Hundreds of children and thousands of animals - including pets and endangered species - are accidentally poisoned each year from sweet-tasting but toxic antifreeze and engine coolant. Fortunately, the Massachusetts senate is considering a bill, H.B. 4285, that would require manufacturers to add a bittering agent to antifreeze and coolant sold in the state, so animals and children are no longer attracted to the deadly substance.
TAKE ACTION Please make a brief, polite phone call to your state senator to urge support for H.B. 4285.
Please remember to be polite and professional, and leave your name and address so it is clear that you are a constituent. You can say:
"Hello, my name is [your name] and I am calling from [your town]. As a constituent, I would like to urge Senator [senator's name] to support H.B. 4285 to prevent antifreeze poisoning. Thank you."
After calling, please send a follow-up email to your senator in support of this legislation. Thank you for all you do for animals!
