Thank you for your interest in supporting California Senate Bill 1347.

This alert is no longer active.

Please read the following update fromLedy VanKavage, Senior Legislative Attorney at Best Friends:

We got close! Best Friends advocates worked with CAL Animals, the main driver of this important legislation, to successfully getSB 1347through theCaliforniaSenate.However, CAL Animals rightfully asked the House sponsor to pull the bill from consideration after special interest groups* successfully lobbied Assemblyman and Committee ChairmanEvan Low to attach a costly amendment to the bill. If passed, this amendment would have interfered with an animal shelter's ability to save animals, something we simply could not accept. We are disappointed with this outcome but will keep fighting for California animals in next year's legislative session.
