Last week, I went public for the first time to announce my efforts to have Congress enact “Little Man’s Law,” an Act that will require warning labels on all pet food products containing illegal (but allowed by the FDA) and unsafe adulterated ingredients.
Now it’s time to let your voices be heard.
I have started a petition and need everyone to sign it and show their support. Click the link below to see the petition:
Before a proposed Bill ever sees the light of day, it must have a sponsor (a member of Congress to introduce the Bill). I have already provided detailed packages to the following members of Congress hoping to garner their sponsorship:
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)
Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL)
Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL)
Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL)
In addition to signing the petition, you can contact these members of Congress directly. Please note that people residing outside the state or district of these members of Congress may not receive a reply, especially to an email. However, all can be reached via their staff at their office addresses or telephone numbers. Their contact information is provided below:

Please feel free to contact the represetatives of your own state also. To help makes things even easier, I would like to request that you copy and paste the following into the body of any email or letter sent to any member of Congress, but of course you can add, edit, or write your own letter. Make sure to reference “Little Man’s Law.” Don’t forget to fill in the blank with the name of the person you are trying to reach:
It has come to my attention that you have received correspondence from Mr. Jonathon Payne of Alabama regarding his proposal for the enactment of “Little Man’s Law” that will require warning labels on all pet food products containing illegal (but allowed by the FDA) and unsafe adulterated ingredients.
Mr. Payne is right. I have the right to know what is in the food I feed ALL of my family members, and that includes my pets. My pets are family, and they deserve better.
Please support Little Man’s Law.
