California Assembly Bill 241 Proceeds to Senate Appropriations Committee
Print This Article
[Thursday, July 16, 2009]
Assembly Bill 241 passed out of the Senate Public Safety Committee  
today on a vote of 4-0. Although the bill failed 3-3 in committee on  
Tuesday, another vote was held today to allow Senator Steinberg, who  
was absent Tuesday, to cast his vote.

Assemblyman Pedro Nava, AB 241?s author, verbally agreed to amend the  
bill, but the text of those amendments is not yet available. AKC will  
provide updates as soon as the amendments are available and a hearing  
date is set for the Appropriations Committee.

AB 241 will make it a misdemeanor for any person to have more than a  
combined total of 50 intact dogs and cats. AKC believes that the  
quality of a breeder is not determined by the number of animals he  
has, but by the care the animals receive. This legislation will not  
improve the lives of cats and dogs, will negatively impact responsible  
breeders, and may force result in animals being euthanized or  
relinquished to shelters.Concentrating animal control efforts on dogs  
whose behavior demonstrates that they are a problem for the community  
would be a much better use of taxpayer funds.

The American Kennel Club remains opposed to this legislation and  
encourages California fanciers, and responsible owners, and breeders  
to write their elected officials in opposition to this legislation.  
Please contact the members of the Senate Appropriations Committee and  
ask them to oppose this legislation.
