ISAR is seeking volunteers to help us end devocalization (cutting the vocal cords of dogs and cats). (See ISAR Volunteers.)
As a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit, ISAR can’t lobby for or against the enactment of legislation, but we can support those who will fight for legislation to end devocalization in the United States.
Our volunteer need only identify at least one sympathetic legislator, provide him or her with the material contained *** — especially ISAR’s Model Anti-Devocalization Statute. And then encourage the legislator to solicit co-sponsors in support of the Model Statute. (See Capitol Hill’s Animal Friends) For comprehensive information on legislative affairs, see: National Institute for Animal Advocacy, table of contents, Get Political for Animals and Win the Laws They Need by Julie E. Lewin .
Once the bill is introduced and assigned to a committee, our volunteer should identify sympathetic members of that committee and seek their support for the bill.
At our Lobbying page, we have provided a lengthy Table of Contents for Get Political for Animals and Win the Laws They Need. This book contains detailed information and instructions about how to lobby on behalf of animals.
If you are interested in joining ISAR in this important crusade please email Susan Dapsis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
