Bill on Committee Agenda
Known as the “Transparency in Animal Shelters Act”, Senate Bill 872 requires shelters to report monthly and annual report of how many animals they take in, adopt out, reclaim, kill, transfer to rescue, die in kennel, and go missing/lost. The information must be posted on their website.
Do you think increased accountability standards will prevent animal cruelty and neglect?
