Assembly Committee Rejects Governor Brown's Animal Shelter Repeal
An Assembly committee has rejected a proposal by Governor Jerry Brown to repeal the so-called “Hayden Law”. Animal welfare advocates say it ensures the humane treatment of stray and lost animals in California shelters, postpones euthanasia for four to six days, and provide animals with necessary and prompt veterinary care.
Muttville’s Patty Stanton and Anne Lauck spoke at the Hayden Law rally at the Alameda Courthouse in Oakland, as aired on The Pacifica Evening News with Mark Mericle on KPFA.
