We are excited to announce the 2nd Annual Animal Advocacy Day, which brings together animal advocates from across the state for a day of action at the California State Capitol. Last year’s event brought state lawmakers, animal welfare leaders, and other advocates together. The event raised awareness about legislative efforts to help address critical access-to-care issues and veterinary shortages in California.
The impact of Animal Advocacy Day became evident as AB 1399, which allows for the use of veterinary telemedicine, and SB 669, which expands access to wellness care by, for example, allowing Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVTs) to administer vital vaccines at vaccine clinics when the veterinarian is off-site. Both bills were successfully enacted into law and Advocacy Day last year helped to build momentum and awareness of access-to-care legislation as well as other animal welfare needs.
We hope you will join us on this special day to improve animal welfare in our state.
RSVP information to come in late February.
