 READ THIS AND DON’t LET H.R. 669 PASS!

This was taken from this website http://www.nohr669.com./index.htm Go to this website and watch the video!

What is HR 669?
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

Don’t let H.R. 669 pass!

If you go to this link you can send a letter/email to your state representative telling them how you feel and asking them to not let H.R. 669 pass. They even have a pre written letter to send if you are unsure of what to write and you can add to it if you want. They also have the phone number of your representative so you may follow up with a phone call if you desire. Me and my husband already sent 2 emails voicing our opinion. One for the state I live in and one for my husband’s home state of record(he’s military).
