Companion Animal Protection Legislation

This July, the state of Delaware passed comprehensive legislation which mandates that animal shelters must work with rescue groups who wish to help them find homes for shelter animals.

According to the No Kill Advocacy Center:

This law:
  • mandates the programs and services which have proven so successful at lifesaving in shelters which have implemented them;
  • follows the only model that has actually created a No Kill community; and,
  • focuses its effort on the very shelters that are doing the killing.
What do you think?  Could a law like this work in a cash-strapped state like California?
