Hayden Second Victory

Dear Friends

By now you've heard the great news that the California State Senate
Budget Subcommittee voted unanimously to reject the Governor's
proposal to repeal the Hayden Law (including many other suspended
state mandates). While the Budget Subcommittee voted to not repeal any
of the mandates, the animal protector's presence was EVER so powerful.
They heard from more of us by far than anyone else.

Last night I personally handed the subcommittee your 20,000+
signatures and spoke on behalf of Stray Cat Alliance and the other
amazing advocates who came up to protect shelter animals.

Our fight to protect dogs, cats, rabbits and all animals who enter
California shelters is not over. We will find out in the next week
how this will play out, and I will inform you. I can’t say what the
future holds, but I can say that I am proud of so many individuals and
organizations, large and small, who are really stepping up to the plate to
protect our precious furry friends.

The Hayden Law was enacted well over a decade ago and while there
have been many battles and controversies regarding it, we know that
it is a baseline we cannot allow to slip away. AND, we must do more.
We must continue to push the envelope and make life better for shelter
animals and their communities by implementing life-saving policies and
programs, and by not taking no for an answer. So many communities
around our great country are succeeding with shelter reforms. There is
no reason why every community, cannot succeed too.
