All Our Children Meow and Woof: Safe Pet Food

All Our Children Meow and Woof

I created this blog to sort through my emotions as Finnegan, a great Irish Wolfhound, fought bone cancer for nearly 26 months. Fortunately, his battle subsided for many months and during the course of the 26 months, I shared stories about his feline siblings. On August 8, 2008, Finny passed on in my husband's and my arms. He fought the good fight and he will always have a special place in my heart. *If you have a question, please write me at finnegandog at gmail dot com.*

Safe Pet Food

As everyone in the United States and Canada knows, there have been numerous recalls of various pet foods due to toxins within some of the ingredients. Unfortunately, too many animals died as a result of these toxins. It is too late to save the animals who perished but we can do something now to help.

Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) and Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) introduced
the Pet and Human Food Safety Act on May 1 to provide more oversight and
regulation of the food industry. In a remarkable demonstration of how important
this issue is, the U.S. Senate approved a Durbin amendment on pet and human food
safety on May 2 -- just one day after the bill was introduced -- by a resounding
vote of 94 to 0!

This is only one step in the right direction. If you want to help, click here and learn how you can contact your local representative to urge him or her to vote for this bill.
