Please leave this law as is-a shelter should be a place where an animal has a second chance. It is foolish to change this

I respectful ask that you oppose the HB 340 as amended!

Brenda Broaddus

I believe this has been approved on the 2-3-16 committee vote. What is our next step?

Hi Brenda,
The amendment in the form of a substitute was reported by the House Agriculture Committee last week. Today, on second reading, the House moved to accept another minor amendment. We remain opposed to HB 340 and have some additional updates on our most recent blog.

Because the third reading and house vote may take place tomorrow, Feb. 9, the step to take now is to contact your delegate, let him or her know that you are a constituent and politely but firmly urge a NO vote on HB 340.

Thank you for your advocacy!
Tabitha Treloar
