Willie Nelson Makes PSA To Influence Georgia To Pass Anti-Dog Fighting Bill

Willie Nelson

Several celebrities have been using their influence to support anti- dog fighting campaigns. And now Willie Nelson is helping our fellow four-legged friends. He recently filmed a television spot supporting an anti-dog fighting bill that is going through the Georgia Legislature.

The bill would make it a felony for anyone to sell, trade or transport dogs for the purpose of dog fighting.

The PSA features Nelson looking into the camera while “Georgia on My Mind” plays in the background. He states, “Dogfighting is against the law in Georgia, but the laws are so weak, the beautiful state of Georgia has become a haven for dogfighters from around the country.”

State Sen. Chip Rogers, the bill’s author, hopes to air the PSA on TV and radio around December 10, which is Vick’s sentencing date.

The bill has passed the state Senate and will go before a House committee in January.

    Can anyone get hold of Willie’s email address?

  7. Poodlluver says:

    This is the only one I could find.

  8. Lynn says:

    I’m sure someone screens the incoming email for him, but what the heck……I sent one anyway. I’m sure Nelson’s email gatekeeper will enjoy reporting to Willie that he had a ton of positive email from the animal folks - and that’s fine enough for me. I think any celebrity who lends his name to help animals deserves kudos.

    When I lived in Austin and did hair (a profession I left behind many years ago) our shop did some of Willie’s entourage’s hair for many years and they were good people and Willie took good care of everyone and all the good people of Austin LOVE Willie. Never a bad word said. He is a kind soul. Thank you Willie for what you have done for the farmers and now for our beloved dogs.
