Urgent: Motivate Congress To Save $1 Billion By Helping Animals Now

In order to resolve our country's historic budget crisis, the U.S. Congress has created a 12-member "Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction" that is to create a plan by November 23 to reduce our nation's debt by $1.5 trillion over 10 years. There are many areas of spending on which the 6 Rabbits in labRepublicans and 6 Democrats will have difficulty agreeing. However, because so much wasteful spending also needlessly harms animals, this gives the animal protection community an enormous and extraordinary opportunity to suggest budget cuts that the committee can easily agree on!

The Humane Society Legislative Fund has suggested reforming four wasteful programs that together will save taxpayers more than $1 billion. In Defense of Animals (IDA) endorses this proposal, and we're asking our members to send a fax to the committee that points out to them these probably overlooked opportunities for savings. The fax will also automatically be sent to your own U.S. Senators and Representative.

The four money-saving reforms suggested are:

1.    End warehousing of chimpanzees in federally-funded laboratories – save $300 million!

2.    BLM photoEliminate the need to feed thousands of wild horses in government holding pens by using immunocontraception rather than round-ups and removals – save $172 million!

3.    Replace animal testing procedures with dramatically more efficient methods – save $500 million!

4.    Reduce government subsidies of inefficient and inhumane lethal predator control – save $110 million!

Please click here for more information on these proposals from the Humane Society Legislative Fund. Each member of the Congressional committee has already been provided with the details backing up each of these proposals. So all you need to do is send a fax indicating your support! And we've made it easy for you: click here to access our automated system where we've already set up a sample letter. Personalize the letter, feel free to add your own thoughts, then send it to all members of the committee, plus your own Senators and Representative, all with one click. Thank you!
