  1. does anyone know which lawmaker i should send my personal letter to ? or anything else i can do to voice out or get involved in a campaign against this ? i am just utterly disturbed and need to stand up for these dogs . it is absolutely ridiculous and disturbing that the government has the right to just do whatever they want with these dogs .
