Sponsored by: ASPCA Pet overpopulation causes needless animal pain and suffering. Homeless animals are forced to live in fear and scrounge for food and water, do not receive medical care, and almost always lead short, difficult lives.

Signed, noted, forwarded. Thank you, Andrea.

S 2372 and HB 1221 - Animal Control or Cruelty Ordinances
Senate Bill 2372, introduced by Senator Nan Rich, and House Bill 1221, introduced by Rep. Scott Randolph, would require county's or municipalities in Florida to collect a $15 surcharge for each violation of an ordinance relating to animal cruelty or control. At least $9 of the surcharge would be used to subsidize the costs of spaying or neutering dogs and cats in the community.

Status: S2372 was approved by the Committee on Judiciary and the Committee on Community Affairs, but unfortunately did not make it to the floor of the Senate for a vote before the session ended. HB 1221 was unanimously approved by the Agriculture & Natural Resources Policy Committee, but did not progress further before the end of the session.

Please thank Senator Rich and Representative Randolph for introducing this legislation.
