Update on Florida Animal Rescue Act

We learned that a Florida law SB 818, which was passed unanimously in the Senate Community Affairs committee, and despite overwhelming public support, never reached a vote.  On the last day of session, one senator had the power to save the lives of Florida's shelter animals but instead killed the bill due to a procedural objection.

The Florida Animal Rescue Act would have saved the lives of thousands of Florida's sheltered pets, would have saved taxpayer money, and would have set statewide standards for rescue groups.

Please tell Senator Thrasher that the Florida Animal Rescue Act must pass in 2013.  Senator Thrasher can be reached at his Jacksonville office at (904) 727-3600;  via e-mail:; or by mail at Senator John Thrasher,  9485 Regency Square Blvd., Suite 108 Jacksonville, FL 32225-8145.

Thank you for taking a moment of time to make a difference and save thousands of lives. You are the voice of voiceless, homeless pets.
