We have declared victory in Missouri on Prop B! We are winning now by 38,000, and we expect that margin to increase! What a night for the dogs!

Missouri is the number one puppy mill state in America. We now have a pathway to turn this terrible situation around.

Thank you everyone for your support. This was an incredible victory.

We also won in Arizona -- defeating Prop 109. We protected our right to advance animal protection initiatives and turned back this terrible effort by the NRA.

It was an incredible night for animal protection, going into a strong headwind. We are elated!
