Update on Maryland Votes for Animals April 2013

Legislative Update AND Invitation!

Dear Krista,

Thank you for helping MVFA make animal protection a priority in the 2013 session of the Maryland General Assembly!  For three intense months, Maryland Votes For Animals worked tirelessly with legislators to make sure Maryland passed two life-saving animal protection bills:
  1. Statewide Spay/Neuter Fund to save thousands of homeless animals – PASSED!
  2. Molly’s Law to protect “bait dogs” and help stop dog-fighting – PASSED!

Join us to Celebrate!  Click HERE to celebrate our win, meet the humane legislators who helped achieve these victories, and participate in our Humane Champion Award ceremony:

Speaker of the House, Michael Busch
Senator Joanne Benson
Senator James Rosapepe
Delegate Barbara Frush

and more, including members of the spay/neuter task force

Our legislative champions work very hard on behalf of animals. JOIN US to say a heartfelt thank you to those legislators who made it happen.

While breed neutral legislation did not pass due to lack of consensus between House and Senate versions, MVFA is determined to press on until we find a resolution.  We are working on a new offensive to tackle the storm surrounding this critical issue for pit bulls and their owners, please stay tuned for additional information and action alerts.

In closing, as a long-time observer of the MGA, who knows how far we’ve come, I am hopeful for the future and confident we will look back at 2013 as the year the tide turned for Maryland’s animals. THANK YOU for being a crucial part of this positive change!

Sincerely, Carolyn and the Board of Directors: Valerie, Kim, Joe, Frank, Harriett and David
