HB 71, the Companion Animal Protection Act, was introduced in Florida. It would make it illegal for shelters to kill animals if there are empty cages or kennels, if animals can share a cage or kennel with another animal, if a foster home is available...

When the petitioner was targeting a handful of senators for a House (of Representatives) bill, I had to look into it.

The good news: HB 71 (SB 414) actually passed into law, but it has to do with service animals only.

The Companion Animal Protection Act (HB 497 / SB 1234), I'm sorry to say, died in Agriculture & Natural Resources Subcommittee on April 28 and May 1, respectively.
( http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Bills/billsdetail.aspx?BillId=53466 )

It's such a shame. There were some outstanding improvements proposed that even high-kill, animal control agencies would have had to abide by, including:

"An animal shelter shall work with a licensed veterinarian to develop and follow a care protocol for animals with special needs such as, but not limited to, nursing mothers, unweaned animals, sick or injured animals, extremely frightened animals, geriatric animals, or animals needing therapeutic exercise."

Noted and signed, although the true solution to all of this is for every Care2 and other animal-loving person on the planet to start adopting one or more of the shelter animals. If we put our money and time where our mouths are, the shelters would be empty!!!
