Second Annual Animal Advocacy Day!

Second Annual Animal Advocacy Day!

The SF SPCA will once again be collaborating with animal welfare partners from across California for an Animal Advocacy Day in Sacramento on Tuesday, April 16.

This day of action in the California State Capitol will be an important opportunity to make our voices heard and meet with elected officials. We invite you all to come out and advocate on behalf of critical pieces of legislation that will help animals in California. We will provide all the information you need to have an energizing day that helps move the needle for animals.

This year, we will collectively focus on three important animal welfare bills, with an eye towards spurring lawmakers to support them:

  • AB 2216 This bill would limit landlords’ ability to charge monthly pet rent, prevent tenants from owning pets without justifying their policy, and other practices that prevent tenants from owning pets and/or that result in tenants relinquishing their pets.
  • SB 1233 This bill requests that University of California and Western University of Health Sciences establish standards and certification for providing High-Quality, High-Volume Spay and Neuter Surgical Techniques and offer curriculum in their veterinary medicine programs.
  • AB 2248 This bill would limit some predatory practices that commercial puppy sellers use to sell puppies, including the use of non-refundable deposits before important information is disclosed.


These bills can improve the lives of many thousands of animals statewide. Your support is important! Be a voice for the voiceless!
