California Residents: Support the Animal Welfare and Violence Intervention Act of 2018

Posted on May 30, 2018

Thanks to your advocacy, SB 1024, the Animal Welfare and Violence Intervention Act of 2018 has already passed two committees in the California legislature. Now the bill is headed to a full Senate vote this week, and your Senator needs to hear from you!  Please call your Senator today and urge him or her to vote “YES” on SB 1024.

SB 1024, the Animal Welfare and Violence Intervention Act of 2018, addresses the link between violence against animals and violence against humans. The bill would empower judges to order people convicted of animal cruelty in California to complete an education course, undergo mental health evaluations, or participate in counseling. These options are in addition to any jail time and/or probation currently allowed under California law.

Please take a few minutes today or tomorrow to call your Senator and politely ask them to support SB 1024, the Animal Welfare and Violence Intervention Act of 2018.

Here’s a sample script:

“Hi, I live in _____ (name of Senator’s) district. I’m calling today to urge the Senator to vote ‘YES’ on SB 1024, the Animal Welfare and Violence Intervention Act of 2018. This important bill addresses the link between violence against animals and violence against humans.”
