Radical Animal Rights Group Shifts Focus to National PUPS Bill 

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) funded front group, “Your Vote Counts” announced this week that they are suspending their campaign to destroy the Missouri Constitution through an amendment which would prevent the alteration of any piece of legislation passed by ballot proposition. Mindy Patterson, Campaign Director for The Alliance for Truth which led the fight to oppose "Your Vote Counts" in addition to the HSUS sponsored 2010 Proposition B, released the following statement today:

"Today is a great day for Missouri and our Constitution. We must, however, remain vigilant against future attempts by the radical Humane Society of the United States to use their deceptive lobbying tactics to destroy law-abiding animal enterprises. As we celebrate, we must remember that HSUS will now shift its focus to their dangerous piece of federal legislation, the Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety Act (PUPS). Having been thwarted in their effort to fool Missourians, HSUS is moving on to destroy the dog breeding industry nationwide. American families who enjoy the ability to purchase pure-bred dogs should stand up and say “NO” to the HSUS agenda of making dog breeding a prohibitively expensive enterprise.”
