Save Lives with Florida Animal Rescue Act

The Florida Animal Rescue Act will make it illegal for animal shelters to kill any animal that a certified non-profit rescue group is willing to take. Animal shelters will also be forced to transparency when it comes to all of the animals that go through their hands. They will be held accountable for reporting which animals get adopted, euthanized or moved to another shelter.

Up to 63% of non-profit rescue groups in Florida have reported being denied the opportunity to rescue an animal from any given shelter.


The Florida Animal Rescue Act was recently unanimously approved by the Florida Senate Community Affairs Division but now the bill will go to the House Agriculture & Natural Resources Subcommittee for review. It is now  time to ask our State Senators and Representatives to endorse the bill. It is nonsensical to kill animals that NGOs are willing to save - and to use taxpayer dollars to do it.
We the undersigned are writing to ask that you endorse the The Florida Animal Rescue Act which would essentially make it impossible for animal shelters to kill any animal that a certified non-profit animal rescue group is willing to take.

Up to 63% of non-profit animal rescue groups in Florida have reported being denied the opportunity to rescue an animal from a shelter.  With this bill, animal shelters will be forced to transparency when it comes to all of the animals that go through their hands. They will be held accountable for reporting which animals get adopted, euthanized or moved to another shelter and if animals are killed when groups exist that are willing to take them, the public will know about it.

The Florida Animal Rescue Act was recently unanimously approved by the Florida Senate Community Affairs Division but now we need your help passing this bill in Congress. Thousands of animals are killed in Florida shelters every year while there are non-profit organizations willing to rescue them. We must take a stand NOW.

It is nonsensical to kill animals that NGOs are willing to save - and to use taxpayer dollars to do it. Please urgently pass this important bill - SB 818/HB 597.
