    Federal Ban on Pets, just say NO! to hr669!!

    Hey Apu!

    I just wanted to let everyone know of this ban there wanting to do on making us quit keeping fish and small pets. These people are a bunch of heartless idiots that only care about themselves.

    H.R. 669 stands for House Resolution 669 and is titled "The Nonnative Wildlife Invasion Prevention Act". It is a bill currently before Congress that if passed will change the way that the US Government classifies animal species that are not native to the United States. H.R. 669 will make it illegal to breed and sell many animals that are very common in the pet trade.

    Why should you care about HR 669?
    Anyone with pet fish, birds, reptiles, or small mammals will be affected by this bill. Any company selling product or services for pet fish, birds, reptiles or small mammals will be affected by this bill. Would you be impacted by "The Nonnative Wildlife Invasion Prevention Act"?

    * Virtually all fish in an aquarium are not native to the United States
    * Most pet birds are species not native to the US
    * Most reptiles kept as pets are not native to the US
    * Hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs and ferrets are not native to the US

    What can you do to stop HR 669?
    Pet owners support the concept of a risk based approach to non-native imports, unfortunately H.R. 669 as drafted does not provide a constructive way forward.

    You can help by standing up and making your voice heard. Let your Representative know that you oppose H.R. 669 as drafted and the financial and/or emotional effect it will have on you, or your friends, or your family members if it passes. The link below will allow you to send an email to your Representative in Congress and even give you the option to follow up with a phone call.

    anyhow Apu here is the complete link to the site lets do all we can to keep our pets!
