Legislative Alert!

The Idaho Humane Society is supporting the following bills currently in front of the Idaho legislature and we need your help!

House Bill 540 will create a Pet Friendly license plate. A portion of the plate’s fee would go into a fund that will be dispersed to licensed veterinarians in Idaho to provide spay and neuter services to low-income pet owners. You can find the full text of the bill here: H540 Pet Friendly License Plate.

We are thrilled to announce that with your help, we were able to submit over 600 emails to the committee in less than 48 hours. If you would like to send a statement of support, please email the members at the addresses provided below.

***********************************

Senate Bill 1244 would provide immunity from civil liability and criminal prosecution for persons acting in good faith that break into a car to rescue an animal that is in imminent danger of suffering death or serious bodily injury.

You can find the full text of the bill here: S1244 Dogs in Hot Cars.

We are thrilled to announce that with your help, we were able to submit over 530 emails to the committee in less than 48 hours. If you would like to send a statement of support, please email the members at the addresses provided below.
