Thanks Joan!

Sub-committee voted unanimously to eliminate the part of the Budget that would've repealed Hayden. Two paws way up!

There will be a similar Senate hearing in April, and likely later meetings of the policy merits, so stay tuned!

There is much to be done, relatively inexpensively, to further improve CA's animal sheltering system -- let's move the focus on those next great leaps forward.

Thanks as well to everybody who wrote!
