Will you vote to change Colorado law to raise over $6 million per year to be spent on programs and services to help homeless pets and prohibit their destruction unless they are sick or dangerous?

Per Department of Agriculture statistics, over 16,000 homeless pets were destroyed in Colorado in 2013 even though almost 19,000 were transferred into the state for adoption. We believe Coloradans value companion animals and would be willing to fund programs and services to address pet overpopulation, to help people keep the pets they have and to ensure that when pets must be relinquished to a shelter, those animals are given a fair chance at adoption and are only euthanized for medical or safety reasons, not as a solution for population control.

SHALL STATE TAXES BE INCREASED $6,275,000 ANNUALLY IN THE FIRST FISCAL YEAR AND BY SUCH AMOUNTS THAT ARE RAISED THEREAFTER BY IMPOSITION OF A 15 PERCENT TAX ON THE SALE PRICE OF PET ANIMALS TO FUND PROGRAMS AND SERVICES TO ADDRESS PET OVERPOPULATION, AND, IN CONNECTION THEREWITH, AMENDING THE COLORADO REVISED STATUTES TO PROHIBIT PET ANIMAL CARE FACILITIES FROM EUTHANIZING PETS EXCEPT IN LIMITED CIRCUMSTANCES; IMPOSING A MONETARY PENALTY FOR EACH VIOLATION OF THE EUTHANASIA PROHIBITION, ALLOWING PERSONS TO BRING COURT ACTIONS TO ENFORCE COMPLIANCE WITH AND PENALIZE VIOLATIONS OF THE EUTHANASIA PROHIBITION, AND USING CERTAIN FEES AND PENALTIES COLLECTED TO MAKE GRANTS FOR PROGRAMS AND SERVICES TO ADDRESS PET OVERPOPULATION?
