Welcome to our weekly email newsletter, your source for the latest news from our animal welfare community and information on pending humane legislation.



YOUR HELP NEEDED TO STOP BILL THAT’S BAD FOR BIRDS
Did you know that millions of day-old baby chicks are sent through the mail by commercial hatcheries and cockfighting breeders every year? The birds are literally packed in boxes, without food or water and without concern for extremes in temperature. Although the U.S. Postal Service has decided to adopt several regulations that would protect these birds, legislation recently introduced by Senator Charles Grassley attempts to undermine these new regulations. If passed, S. 2395 would ensure the continuation of unnecessary suffering for these baby birds.

STICKY SITUATIONS: 740% INCREASE IN CASES OF PETS INGESTING POLYURETHANE GLUE
Imagine this scenario: a young boxer pup gets into a tube of polyurethane glue, accidentally left out when his owners were doing home repairs. By the next morning the pup is vomiting, and his abdomen is swollen and tender. A visit to the veterinarian reveals that the expanding adhesive did just that—expand—in the dog’s stomach, turning into a hard, solidified mass requiring emergency surgery. But what’s really astounding? The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center is seeing more and more cases just like this one.
