In the news: tidbits to ponder!

Taken from Animal Wellness Magazine June/July 2019 Vol. 21 Issue 3

I enjoy the chance to share with you what’s going on around the nation and even sometimes in our own state, we may not be aware of.

In the news

  • Florida State Agriculture Committee has put forth a bill that would make it a first degree misdemeanor to abandon companion animals during hurricanes, fires, and other such circumstances.  Under the bill, those who leave their animals unattended or restrained during a disaster would face up to a year in jail or a fine of up to $5000    flsenate.gov/session/bill/2019/01738
  • Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) provides financial grants to those unable to afford the cost of their animals’ emergency or critical care.  FACE was created in 2006 to combat the problem of “economic euthanasia.”  This is when people decide to euthanize their pet because they can’t afford veterinary care.  Their vision is to create a world where no family pet dies due to financial hardship.  FACE4PETS.org
