Governor Asking for Public Opinion on Ferret Bill -- Please Call In Support!

July 12, 2004

As most ferret owners are aware, ferrets are currently banned as pets in the state of California. Californians for Ferret Legalization (CFL), headed by Jeanne Carley, is an organization that has been tirelessly fighting for the right to own ferrets in the state for many years.

A recent update by CFL offers promising hope that the years of work may be finally paying off. The following is a release sent out by CFL on July 6. Time is of the essence -- call in your support today!!

Governor Requests Public Opinion on Ferret Bill

I just heard that the Governor's office is asking the public's opinion on our ferret amnesty bill. I absolutely urge you all to call in your support for this bill as soon as possible. Follow the prompts and select the one that asks for you opinion on legislation. I just called but I want you all to listen carefully in case it changes. To respond to legislation, press #2, then listen for SB 89, press #3, then to support SB 89 press #1. Please have all of your friends and family call in. This is, I believe, good news but we must answer this loud and clear!

The Governor's number is:

(916) 445-2841

Don't let this unique opportunity to be heard by the Governor's Office go by!

Some folks from out of state have asked if they should call, and I don't see what's wrong with that. If you plan to move or visit CA this will affect you too someday. But, we absolutely MUST have Californians call so if you live in CA get on the phone and please get your friends and family to call as well.
