HR 669 Update

A Congressional hearing on HR 669, the Nonnative Wildlife Prevention Act, took place on April 23.

As it turns out, not much came out of the hearing except agreement from nearly all involved that the Bill needs a lot of work before it could ever become law. Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle received thousands of phone calls, letters and emails from their constituents urging them to defeat the Bill as it stands. Thank you from all of us at The Animal Store to all of you who took the time to contact your representatives.

We’ll keep you posted if anything changes.
