New animal welfare legislation!

Florida Senate Bill 368 would require research facilities to offer dogs and cats for adoption rather than kill them when the facilities seek to dispose of the animals. This bill would give an opportunity to these innocent animals for a second chance at life!

The bill provides an exception for instances where health or safety reasons necessitate euthanasia. The bill has not yet been referred to a committee, but we are hopeful for its prospects.
