Bad News for Dogs and Cats. 😢

We are frustrated to announce that AB 1881, the Dog and Cat Bill of Rights has failed to pass the Senate. We are particularly dismayed to convey that CalAnimals, the association representing animal control agencies and animal shelters in the state, played the leading role in killing the bill.


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.
