FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 6, 2004 

FUPPPS MEMBERS WORLDWIDE URGE U.S. PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES TO SUPPORT SAME SEX MARRIAGE FOR PETS

February 6, 2004, Van Nuys, California, FUPPPS Headquarters: FUPPPS -- The Federation of Unacknowledged Partnerships among Pooches, Pussycats and Sturgeons -- reports their offices are becoming littered with faxes as people and pets from all over the world respond to FUPPPS’ growing alarm over presidential candidates’ reluctance to speak out on the issue of same sex marriage for pets.

The movement is gaining momentum all over the country, and indeed, around the world, as veterinarians, pet food providers, pet store owners and pet licensing agencies have all joined forces with FUPPPS members to demand U.S. candidates come forward with answers to the question, "Where do you stand on gay marriage for pets?" 

"Folks are in an uproar!" reports Sandy Shumish, founder of FUPPPS, as she points to letters from Australia, Great Britain, and the U.S. from Maine to Seattle. "Why have we been neglecting this issue that’s so crucial to our cherished friends?" Mail, which can be seen on the FUPPPS website, has been pouring in. For example,

Dear FUPPPS:

I think you guys better do a re-count!  The number of pets in the US of A is actually dropping! Our papers have been littered with stories of pets fleeing to safe havens in Canada, where they can wed in peace.

I know first-hand. My own dear Sally and Helen just faxed me from Toronto. I miss them terribly. Everyone should certainly sign your petition! I have, and I’ve spread the word to all my buddies.

Before making their choice at the polls, American voters need to know that the candidate they back is committed to upholding this basic right for all our dear friends!  With 612,453,023 pets in America, each voice adds strength to a sizeable voting bloc indeed!
