IMPORTANT: HR669 - ALL MEMBERS & HOBBYISTS PLEASE READ
All Members and Fellow Hobbyists must read and take action on this.
We have less then a week to act on this.
Please go to the following websites regarding information on your rights
to own your pets.
This website has a video that explains the bill.
It explains to you what is at risk and how you can do something about it.
Plus they even took the courtesy to make it easy for you to send emails
and locate the people you need to contact.
The site also includes updates as well.
The link below is the text of the bill.
Here is another site with information as well.
Also try to keep all HR669 forum posts on RZ up towards the top,
so they are read by others.
Make sure we have a post on all our forums.
If there is not a post in other forums then please add one.
This will be one of the few times we are allowing some spamming.
For members that have been keeping on top of things please keep members here updated.
That would be greatly appreciated.
I thank every member that contacted me personally on this subject as well.
You will find other things you can do to help by reading some of the HR669 posts
already circulating on the forum.
I would strongly recommend having your family, friends (on-line friends as well),
and co-workers respond to the bill as well.
Thanks for reading. If you have any question, comments, suggestions.
Or if I have something wrong on here please feel free to contact me.
Contact Doug - Webmaster.

This does not include just reptiles, it is for All animals,
with the exception of those listed.
Write as many letters/emails as you can.
There are sample letters at many diferent web sites.
You can add some of your own words. Just keep it civil and to the point.
Remember to use proper punctuation, and paragraphing.
A letter written/typed in an on-going sentence, or no breaks in the subjects/point,
will be hard to read.
I have sent out more than 200 emails to friends, family, people I do not know,
and congressmen/women and representatives, radio stations, news rooms, etc.
KEEP THIS BUMPED TO THE TOP.
SPAM IT IN ALL ROOMS THAT DO NOT HAVE IT POSTED
(this is the only time we are allowed to spam every room... Use it!!!)
In this post CONGRESSIONAL HEARING BANNING NONNATIVE SPECIES,
in the BP forum, I have a link to a site that explains in more detail.
