Schwarzenegger swings budget axe at homeless animals, urging faster shelter killing

The L.A. Times and the San Francisco Gate are reporting that Governor Schwarzenegger is using the budget crunch to renew a previous attempt to drastically shorten the holding period animals must be kept at government-funded shelters.  According to the Times, “In 2004, Schwarzenegger made a similar proposal, saying cutting the minimum number of days shelters had to keep pets would save the state $14 million annually.” 

To share your opinion on this budget proposal and its effect on California's animals you can email the Governor here, or get phone contact info here.
