Tell NBC to Stop Promoting Westminster Dog Show

Dog Pets Adviser

Target: Stephen Burke, CEO of NBC Universal

Goal: End the promoting and airing of the Westminster Dog Show.

The Westminster Dog Show is an annual event that showcases purebred dogs. Purebred dogs come from breeders and are often plagued with disease and hereditary problems. For example, purebred German shepherds are prone to seizures and golden retrievers have a high risk of hip dysplasia.

Every year after the show is aired, many people go out to buy their own purebred dogs. However, every time a dog is bought from a breeder, a dog in a shelter loses their chance at a loving home and can even lose their life due to overcrowding in shelters.

The Westminster Dog Show is detrimental to dogs. BBC refuses to air Crufts which is the British equivalent to the Westminster Dog Show. Sign this petition and demand NBC stop airing the Westminster Dog Show.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Burke,

The Westminster Dog Show is aired every year on your network NBC. After the show, many people are inspired to buy purebred dogs. What they do not know is that purebred dogs are more prone to disease and hereditary problems. In addition, every time a purebred dog is bought, a dog at a shelter loses their chance at a happy life. It indirectly leads to the dog’s death due to overcrowding in open admission shelters.

The Westminster Dog Show is detrimental to dogs. BBC refuses to air Crufts, which is the British equivalent to the Westminster Dog Show. It is time NBC follow suit.

Please consider ending your promotion of the Westminster Dog Show and to stop airing the show all together.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
