CA AB 1809 LEAVES LOOPHOLE FOR AR PLANS–OPPOSE!

See way down below, the text of this bill…

THEN….NOTE #(a)(2)  (c)+(d)  which contains part of the problems?

THIS BILL IS BEING PUSHED BY THE ASPCA, THE GROUP THAT PAID OUT THE $9.5 MILLION RE RICO ALLEGATIONS………. How much ya wanna bet that HSUS drafted it and then had ASPCA push it?

NOW WHAT DO U THINK “THEY” (ANIMAL RIGHTS) WILL BE DOING WITH THAT CERTIFICATE, SINCE THEIR LITTLE PROPOSED LAW STATES:

“The receiving agency may use the information on the health certificate as it deems appropriate.”

We can already tell y’all……..they will leave law “as is’ and later EXEMPT non profits, OR…. exempt non profits now because they never source or are not required to source, ANYTHING they sell basically, or won’t have to source because they don’t know the source?!@##$$%%   

Then later they will require that ONLY dogs SOURCED from shelter,and non profits/rescue can be sold to other states, the OTHER animals will require a HUGE transfer fee just to transfer the animal INTO the state.  They will start trying to obtain a use tax, transfer tax or some other high fee, or they will require a permit to transfer or sell. MARK OUR WORDS— WE SEE IT COMING.  TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO OPPOSE THIS BILL !!!!! 

THIS BILL IS A STEPPING STONE TO ENACTING SUBSEQUENT MANDATES FOR MAKING FEES OR TAXES DOWN THE LINE, ON BUYERS, SELLERS/BREEDERS. IT DOES NOTHING TO NON PROFITS, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, AND IT WILL NOT DO IT.  BECAUSE THEY WILL GET THE EXEMPTION, WE GUARANTEE IT.  IN FACT THEY PLANNED IT THAT WAY SO NO ONE WOULD THINK IT’S SUSPECT.  IT IS HIGHLY SUSPECT BECAUSE WE KNOW HOW THEY THINK.

If you don’t believe us, see what The Animal Council says:

http://www.theanimalcouncil.com/files/TAC_Letter_-_ASM_BP_CP_AB_18092.pdf

We don’t agree with TAC as to the “rescues” not knowing anything about their own sourcing, since that is how rescue has always worked, and we already know they will get exempted either now or eventually.

This entire BILL is aimed at buyers and sellers, and obtaining sellers’ and buyers’ personal information.

This bill would require a person seeking to bring a dog into this state, or importing dogs into this state for the purpose of resale or change of ownership, to obtain a health certificate with respect to that dog that has been completed by a licensed veterinarian and is dated within 10 days prior to the date on which the dog is brought into the state.
The bill would require the person to submit the health certificate to the county health department, as specified. The bill would exempt from these requirements a person who brings a dog into the state that will not be offered for resale or if the ownership of the dog will not is not expected to change.   The bill also would exempt from these requirements the import of a dog used for law enforcement or military work, a guide dog, as defined, or a dog imported as a result of a declared emergency or an investigation by law enforcement of an alleged violation of state or federal animal fighting or animal cruelty laws.
The bill would authorize the agency receiving the health certificate to use the information on the health certificate as it deems appropriate, and to charge a fee in a reasonable amount sufficient to cover the costs associated with receiving and processing a health certificate submitted to the county health department pursuant to these provisions. By imposing a higher level of service on county health agencies, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
