California’s ‘Dog and Cat Bill of Rights’ one step closer to reality
SACRAMENTO – California’s proposed “Dog and Cat Bill of Rights” continues to move forward.
Lawmakers on Wednesday announced the bill advanced through the Business and Professions key policy committee.
“I would like to thank Chair Berman and the committee for acknowledging the importance of protecting and caring for our dogs and cats to ensure they are not only loved but respected,” said Assemblymember Miguel Santiago, who introduced the bill in February. “Our pets rely on us for everything from food to exercise and healthcare. It is vital to inform potential adopters of the many responsibilities that come with the adoption of a dog or cat before adoption so all dogs and cats are protected.”
