Non-Profit Animal Care Services Threatened By Proposed Legislation!

Non-Profit Animal Care Services Threatened By Proposed Legislation! 
Non-Profit Animal Care Services Threatened By Proposed Legislation!
On Wednesday, May 6th, SC Senate Agriculture Subcommittee will hear debate on proposed legislation that could limit the services provided by non-profit animal care agencies like the Humane Society.
While Senate Bill S.687
 provides guidelines for quality of care for animals in shelters and rescue groups, parts of the Bill would limit the services available from nonprofit agencies like the Humane Society.
Under the provisions of the Bill, only families with incomes below the Federal poverty level would be able to avail themselves of some services. 
Clients seeking care for their pets from a non-profit clinic would have to show proof of income. According to the 2015 Poverty Guidelines (HHS), an individual would have to make less than $11,770 to qualify for non-profit veterinary care.  A family of four would have to prove income below $24,250.
Show your support for free choice and affordable veterinary care by voicing your opposition by contacting members of the subcommittee by phone or email.

 
 
Please contact our local Subcommittee Member
 

 
In your communications or interactions with our elected leader please be professional and respectful.

Thank you for your help and support.
