Nationwide March – Pets Need a Voice Too
Today, this weekend and upcoming, all over the country, people and pets are marching to show their support for each other and those affected by the contaminated petfood and to bring a united voice to the powers that be that we won’t stand for this anymore!
Let your voice be heard! Join the march!
The media has greatly misrepresented the true numbers in this tragedy. Retailers across the country continue to stock their shelves with tainted and recalled pet food. Pets all over the world continue to die and get sick from foods that the FDA has not put on an â€œofficialâ€ recall list and have not enforced the removal of all tainted products.
LATEST NATIONWIDE MARCH INFORMATION
We are marching in memory of our pets that have lost their lives, we are marching in memory of those pets that are fighting for their lives, we march as pet owners, dog lovers, cat lovers and average citizens that are tired of the lowered safety standards for goods coming in to this country.
