Tell Florida Governor to Veto New Law Allowing Animals to Be Dyed

Dyeing animals has been against the law in Florida for 45 years—and with good reason—but new legislation passed by the Florida legislature would repeal this ban. Animals need your voice!

If this legislation becomes law, pet stores would likely take advantage of it (for example, by dyeing ducklings, bunnies, and chicks at Easter) to entice children and parents into buying animals on a whim. Dyeing is stressful to the animals, and pet store customers rarely stop to consider the responsibility of caring for the animals for a lifetime. Animals purchased on impulse often end up abandoned, severely neglected, or dumped at already strained shelters.

The bill has now been turned over to Gov. Rick Scott to sign. There’s still time to encourage him to veto this careless bill.
