“Let’s Pitch In and Push Declan Over the Top”
My name is Declan. I’m an 11 year old 6th-grader from New Hampshire. I love animals and believe that we have a responsibility to protect them from cruelty and abuse. I need your help to stop the dangerous “Ag Gag” bill that would cause more animals to suffer.
New Hampshire’s government is considering a bill that pretends to help animals, but actually protects animal abusers!
For years, animal protection charities have been conducting investigations that expose terrible cruelty in the meat, egg and dairy industries. Can you imagine locking chickens in tiny cages where they can’t even spread their wings for their whole lives? Or putting pigs in crates where they can’t turn around or move more than a step forward or backward? I get bored just sitting in my room sometimes when I can’t go out and play with friends, so it must be so miserable in these ‘factory farm‘ conditions where they treat animals like commodities instead of living beings.
The companies that own the factory farms and slaughterhouses don’t like these videos coming out. You’d think they’d respond by being less cruel to animals so there would be nothing bad to videotape. But instead of doing the right thing, these factory farmers want to just keep us all in the dark about animal abuse and punish those who would expose it!
The legislation the meat companies (factory farms) are pushing to try and trick people that they care about the animals, is called House Bill 110. The good news is that we have a chance of stopping this terrible bill. My mom and I are doing this petition because we know our governor, Maggie Hassan, and other lawmakers in New Hampshire care about animals. We need to remind them that animal cruelty is the real crime, not exposing it!
I’m just a kid, but I know what’s right and what’s wrong. And you don’t even need to be in school to know that being honest is important. Please join me in standing up for animals by signing my petition – we’re their only voice!

The NH State HouseDear Gov. Hassan,Please oppose House Bill 110.Charities that work to protect animals, workers, food safety, reporters and the First Amendment oppose misleading attempts like HB 110 to get whistleblowers in trouble. Plus, a poll found that 71 percent of Americans support undercover investigations by animal charities to expose farm animal abuse.
We should be protecting animals, not animal abusers! This misleading bill is embarrassing New Hampshire and would cause more animal suffering.
