(Having trouble viewing thisl? Click here)
We need your voice in opposition to the Animal Adoption Mandate (Hayden Law) repeal currently proposed in the Governor’s budget plan.
The proposed Animal Adoption Mandate (Hayden Law) repeal eliminates a state requirement that municipal animal shelters hold stray dogs and cats for 4-6 days, and also calls for eliminating the requirement for shelters to provide lost-found posting opportunities, record-keeping, and necessary and prompt veterinary care. It would allow shelters to immediately euthanize all animals besides cats and dogs valued as pets, such as rabbits, pot-bellied pigs, hamsters, turtles, and reptiles. And, it allows immediate euthanasia of cats that are "deemed" feral.

“Rescue animals aren’t broken, they’ve simply experienced more life than other animals. If they were human we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Don’t pity them. Do something. Help to rescue. Donate. Volunteer. Foster. Adopt. And be proud to have their greatness by your side.” ~Pedigree
