In the spirit of the holiday season, PETA is sending a gift basket full of treats and toys to the Obamas' "son," Bo, as a reminder to his human family that millions of dogs who are every bit as deserving of presidential perks as the first dog suffer cruelty and neglect. This gift basket, which is full of the kinds of goodies that dogs' daydreams are made of, also happens to be the prize for this week's "Win It" Wednesday contest.
Want to win it? Of course you do. Tell us what animal protection measure you'd immediately sign into law if you became president. The first thing that pops into my head? I'd pass a law requiring that all dogs be allowed inside—no more shivering 24/7 on chains or in filthy backyard pens. Give it some thought and then wow us. The person who comes up with the "law" we think would deliver the biggest punch in the fight for animal protection will score the prize.
No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
