AB 44 FUR PROHIBITION ACT Bans the sale of fur products in the whole state
AB 733 REPLACE FISH TOXICITY TEST (Hazardous waste must be disposed of properly to protect public health and the environment and this bill will enable California to identify this waste more humanely and accurately)
SB 202 ANIMAL BLOOD DONORS Blood Bank Bill (allows dogs who live in people’s homes to sometimes donate blood to commercial dog-blood-banks, instead of caging dogs in labs to use them for blood supply to injured dogs)
SB 64 PET MICROCHIPPING Requires any animal that enters a shelter at any time to be microchipped before leaving.
SB 313 CA CIRCUS CRUELTY PREVENTION ACT Prohibits the use of animals in circuses Bill (This bill will ban a specified list of animals from performing in traveling shows, such as circuses. REASON: Animals in traveling shows are beaten and live in horrible conditions in order to perform unnatural tricks for entertainment.)
