We are happy to report that Florida Governor Rick Scott signed into law the bill supporting pound and shelter transparency—and it was amended to also endorse Trap-Neuter-Return!
Pounds and shelters will now have to report the number of animals they adopt, transfer to rescue groups, trap-neuter-return, and kill (euthanize). Another great development is that this new law confirms that TNR for feral or outdoor cats is unequivocally legal in Florida. This is a huge step forward for Florida. Thanks to everyone who took action!
A bill on shelter transparency recently passed the Maryland state legislature, and similar bills are now making progress in Illinois and Alabama. Nationwide people are standing up to the needless killing of millions of innocent, healthy animals.
