HB39 has passed the Senate Agriculture committee after being amended as we requested.  We did not get everything we wanted but what was signed into Law was reasonable in our opinion. 


The News

Senator Michele Brooks has introduced SB29 mandating the creation of a Lost and Found Dog database at the Department of Agriculture.  Some unscrupulous online resources were collecting data on lost and found pets, and then charging owners for the information when they came looking for help.  We asked Senator Brooks to add language requiring shelters and rescues to check the database when the take-in a new pet and again when they adopt it out.  We have heard many stories about owners finding their dog after the shelter had already adopted it out to a new home.
