The basics: TIME: April 21, 2011 3:00pm - 6:00pm

WE HOPE THAT A STRONG SHOWING OF SUPPORTERS WILL ENCOURAGE OUR STATE SENATORS AND OUR GOVERNOR TO CONSIDER UPGRADING OUR ANIMAL PROTECTION LAWS AND AUTHORIZE THE INSPECTION OF ANIMAL SHELTERS THROUGHOUT THE STATE.
ALL OF US TOGETHER CAN ENSURE THAT THE VIOLENT DEATH OF THE ANIMALS IN CHESTERFIELD WILL NOT HAVE BEEN IN VAIN.
WE CAN PROMOTE CHANGE.

CROSSPOST THIS TO EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW WHO IS A RESCUER OR AN ANIMAL LOVER.
