URGENT! Virginia Residents, Your Help Needed to Save Lives!Posted: January 31, 2015
Attention Virginia Residents: Two animal protection bills need your support. We are happy to report that SB 693 and SB 1381 passed the Senate Agriculture Committee and will face a full Senate floor vote.
SB 693: This bill would clarify that sterilizing and releasing feral cats back to their habitats is not illegal, allowing cat advocates to continue doing so without fear of prosecution.
SB 1381: This bill clarifies the language for what constitutes a private shelter in Virginia, requiring them to be “operated for the purpose of finding permanent adoptive homes and facilitating other lifesaving outcomes for animals.”
If you live in Virginia, please contact your state Senator and ask for a yes vote: http://whosmy.virginiageneralassembly.gov/
