Governor Brown: Do not start the killing again!

I OPPOSE the proposed repeal of any portion of The Hayden Law - the only legal protection shelter animals have to provide minimal medical care when impounded and to allow for an extended stay for possible adoption/redemption over prior antiquated statutes. Animals will die again in mass numbers when the real solution is spay/neuter. Thank you for your consideration of life over death for those that cannot speak for themselves.

Dear Animal Lover,

I sought legal counsel from a renowned animal advocate attorney to confirm in fact that The Hayden Law was in danger. They stated:

"YES, Governor Jerry Brown WILL be seeking repeal of those provisions of The Hayden Law found to be "reimbursable state mandates."

See provisions of the Hayden Law which are at risk.

Governor Brown is seeking to repeal ALL of the provisions of The Hayden Law that the Commission on Mandates ruled to be "reimbursable state mandates". For reference see http://www.csm.ca.gov/sodscan/98tc11sod.pdf and the 2006 Adoption of Parameters and Guidelines http://www.csm.ca.gov/sodscan/203.pdf.

This is URGENT. Change can happen at any time. Please sign this petition and then call and send letters/faxes, as we would like to show Governor Brown that we stand for the animals who cannot speak for themselves. We are seeking 10,000 signatures as an initial petition, then if necessary will continue to send him more.

I will fly to Sacramento with this petition and personally deliver it to the Governor and appropriate representatives - but YOU must take the next step!

Please do your part and sign this petition, then forward to everyone you know far and wide. Ask them to protect innocent animals who for no fault of their own, landed in the California "animal shelter" system. The Hayden Law is just minimal protection for these animals and currently is the only protection they have to provide needed medical care and an extended stay at the shelters to allow their owners to redeem or to facilitate an adoption.

TAKE ACTION:

Click here for sample letters and the steps to take to contact the Governor with talking points.

Contact Governor Jerry Brown, and tell him you OPPOSE the repeal of any portion of The Hayden Law. At a time when other states in the U.S. are enacting legislation to advance the protection of animals in shelters, California should not be stepping backwards.

Click here to find your representatives and tell them how you feel about The Hayden Law.

Californians favor life over death, and thus the adoption, rather than killing, of shelter animals. Thank you for your compassion.
