Please save our pets from being euthanized! Help stop Governor Jerry Brown from repealing the California's animal control and shelter legislation known as the Hayden Law in the California 2012-13 Budget.
Governor Brown has asked the state legislature to repeal animal protections championed by Senator Tom Hayden in 1998 that include the increase of California's holding period from 72 hours to four days; the requirement that other species, such as rabbits and guinea pigs, be given the same protections as cats and dogs; the posting of lost-and-found lists so that animals can be reunited with their families; and the directive to provide veterinary care for sick and injured animals.
Please read this cogent argument to the repeal by the Animal Law Coalition: http://www.animallawcoalition.com/public-shelters/article/1922
Groups opposed to repeal of the Hayden Law urge like-minded state residents to telephone Gov. Brown at 916-445-2841 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; or fax a letter of opposition to 916-558-3177.
Opposition may also be voiced via email to Brown at http://gov.ca.gov/m_contact.php; by post to Brown's Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ jerry.brown; or by tweet to his Twitter page at @JerryBrownGov<http://twitter. com/jerrybrowngov>
