Ask Your representative for local control of pet population funds.
Thanks to your action, Senate Bill 641 was overwhelmingly passed by the Senate. SB 641 is now under consideration in the House and your voice is needed. This bill would allow counties, if they choose, to use pet population control funds to spay or neuter the pets of people on disability insurance benefits or to humanely reduce the outdoor cat population through trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) programs.
The state has been able to use pet population control funds for these purposes for more than a decade. Counties should have the same power as the state to use these funds, since they are aware of needs in their particular communities.
Politics is not a spectator sport, so please take action today by letting your representative know that you want him or her to support this important bill.
Thanks! Together, we will Save Them All.
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a constituent, I urge you to support SB 641. This commonsense legislation gives counties the power to fully utilize collected pet population funds in a way they see fit. In essence, it would allow a county to use its pet population control fund in the same way as the state.
