Call to Action for AB 1648, the Animal Evacuation Bill!


AB 1648 Passes Out of Senate Appropriations Committee with a 6-0 Vote!


We are thrilled that Senator Portantino and Senate leadership supported AB 1648, authored by Assemblymember Brian Maienschein (D – San Diego), and moved the bill to the Senate floor. The bill will require those applying for a kennel permit throughout the state to have an evacuation plan as a condition for the permit. You can read the entire bill by clicking on the link below.



Now, AB 1648, the Animal Evacuation Act, moves to the Senate floor for a full vote.

Your Senator needs to hear from you!

Please call your Senator by next Wednesday at 5 PM and ask them to:

“Please vote YES on AB 1648.”


We cannot thank you all enough for the action you take for the animals! Please consider making a donation to help us continue our work.


With gratitude,

Judie Mancuso, founder/CEO/president
