We have been heard!!!
California dog enthusiasts can celebrate today!
AB 702, the breeder permit bill, has been pulled from this morning's hearing in the Assembly Business and Professions Committee by the author. AB 702 is now a two-year bill.
We are at the beginning of a two-year legislative cycle so converting this bill to a two-year bill means that it is dead for this year. It's possible for it to be changed and brought back next year, but judging by history, that is unlikely.
This is a huge victory for everyone involved.
Thanks to everyone who contacted their assembly members and to all the great groups that worked so effectively to stop this bill: in particular AKC and CalAnimals, and to all the other groups, including the CPPGA, that worked together to defeat this bad legislation.
