1. Tell Florida to Pass the Animal Rescue Bill
The state of Florida is considering legislation that will require shelters to contact qualified rescues to see if they can take them before euthanizing. A statewide survey of rescue groups in the state "found that 63% of them have been turned away by shelters after offering to save animals and those shelters then turned around and killed the very animals they offered to save." The bill has passed the Senate and will now move onto the House for a vote.
