California, You're Invited:
Join Us for Voices for Animals Day 2017!
California Voices for Animals Day will be held on Wednesday, April 26, 2017. We hope you can join us on this important day!
On Voices for Animals Day, animal advocates from across the state will gather in Sacramento to speak about priority legislation, including:
State Financed Housing/Pet Friendly Housing (A.B. 1137): This bill would make future Housing and Community Developed-financed housing developments pet-friendly, opening up thousands of new housing opportunities for families and their pets.
Predatory Lending/Puppy Leasing (A.B. 1491): This bill potects consumers from unscrupulous lending practices involving the highly emotional purchase of a pet and reduces the potential that the puppy, kitten or other animal will be relinquished due to financial circumstances.
False Advertising/Pet Sales (A.B. 1138): This bill would amend existing law to specify that sellers of pets are prohibited from making false or misleading representations regarding an animal that they advertise for sale.
This is a great chance to network with other animal advocates and learn how YOU can make a big difference for animals. The event will kick off with an adoption fair where attendees can meet adorable, adoptable animals from local shelters and rescues.

For those of you who would like to meet with your legislators or are new to citizen lobbying, we’ll provide a pre-event, web-based training on Wednesday, April 19, to prepare you for your legislative meetings. We’ll send you details after you register.
Laws pass only when legislators hear from their constituents, so your presence at this event will have a huge impact on California’s 2017 legislative session. We hope to see you there!
