This petition had 798 supporters

Pets and animals in shelters are in danger. Please sign the petition to support Alameda County Supervisors Nate Miley and Wilma Chan’s efforts to pass a county resolution to oppose Governor Brown’s proposal to repeal portions of the Hayden Law and to voice your support to save California’s lost pets and shelter animals.

Since 1998, the Hayden Law protected the well being of shelter animals and lost pets. It gave shelter animals the opportunity to find a home and gave owners time to find and be reunited with their lost pets. Governor Brown is proposing to repeal some of the provisions of the Hayden Law citing budget concerns. Some of the repeals will result in permanently reducing the holding period for animals to 72 hours prior to being euthanized and elimination of providing necessary and prompt veterinary treatment for sick animals.

According to the East Bay SPCA, in 2010, 9,822 dogs and 10,257 cats were held in shelters in Alameda County. 2,452 dogs and 316 cats were reunited with their owners. 4,036 dogs and 5,015 cats were adopted and the rest of the remaining animals were euthanized. It is critical to maintain  protections for animals and pets, so they have the opportunity to live and provide companionship.

Governor Brown and the State Legislature will be deciding the fate of the thousands of homeless animals in California.
