Legislative Alert

Ask the budget conferees to include money for pets in need.

The legislature is in the midst of finalizing the state’s budget for the next year, and one of the items being discussed is an additional $100,000 for the Mass Animal Fund. The House included the funding in its budget but the Senate left it out ― which means it’s up to the budget conferees to decide if the money makes it into the final budget.

The simple fact is this: The fund does not currently have enough money to support the needs of our community. A modest investment of $100,000 is desperately needed to help spay/neuter our state’s homeless cats and dogs and to support spay/neuter services for low-income pet owners.

Including this money in the budget will save lives, so please take a moment to contact the budget conferees. Let them know that House amendment 604 should be in the final budget.

Once you’ve taken action, please share this message on Facebook, Twitter and your other social media platforms. The more voices the conferees hear, the better our odds of success. 

Thank you for all you do to Save Them All.

Please help save the lives of our state's cats and dogs by including funding for the Mass Animal Fund in the budget. This is an investment that will not only save lives, but it will also save money for our municipalities.

Help protect our state's cats and dogs by including House amendment 604 in your final budget. Thank you.
