And the good news keeps on rolling. The Companion Animal Protection Act (CAPA) is set to be introduced in Minnesota within the next week, following in the footsteps of a revised version (CAARA) recently introduced in New York, and successful passage in Delaware in 2010.
This act will insure crucial protections for pets in Minnesota shelters, as well as end all “convenience” killing by these organizations. If CAPA passes, no longer will shelters be able to kill when cages are empty, no longer will they be able to kill pit bulls indiscriminately, no longer will they be able to deny animals to legitimate rescue groups, no longer will they be able to deny vet care to suffering animals … and so on.
So keep an eye out for Minnesota CAPA in the next week, and read Mike Fry’s terrific blog about its introduction.
