Florida: Stand up for your right to vote for lifesaving animal care!

Support SB 1738/HB 1127UPDATE: We’re disappointed to report that the animal care funding bill (HB 1127/SB 1738) will not move forward in the Florida legislature this year. Although the bill overwhelmingly passed the first committee hearing, it was tabled by subsequent a committee.

Thank you to everyone who contacted their State Senator and Representative on this important bill.

Original Issue: Florida state legislators are considering a pair of groundbreaking bills (matching bills in the House and the Senate) that could save the lives of countless animals. These bills would give the voters of each county the chance to vote for more funding for lifesaving animal services. Voters could decide to dedicate a portion of their property taxes to expanded spay/neuter resources, low-cost veterinary care, and other positive programs for animals in their own county. It’s a clear-cut way to protecting Florida’s animals.

We know that Floridians want humane approaches for animals! Last election day, Miami-Dade County voters approved a similar ballot initiative overwhelmingly, by a nearly 2-1 margin.
