Two bills that favor animals have just been passed!
The House and the Senate just okayed the Pension Reform Act, which will prevent hunters from deducting the cost of their trips. If they want to continue to engage in their bloody pursuits, from now on they’ll have to foot the bill themselves.
I’m also really happy to report that Congress has passed H.R. 3858, the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards (PETS) Act, which requires evacuation plans to include provisions for companion animals. Just make sure your emergency kit is ready. (I love that the human kit is the afterthought here!)
