Assemblymember Brian Maienschrin introduces legislation to protect pets during emergency evacuations.
Sacramento, CA- Assembly Bill 2568 by Assemblymember Brian Maienschein (San Diego) and sponsored by @SocialCompassion in Legislation , was introduced to establish protections for animals during emergency evacuations. Local jurisdictions require an owner to obtain a permit to keep animals over that jurisdiction’s legal limit. AB 2568 would require an evacuation plan to accompany that permit.
With wildfires being a serious threat in our district, it’s crucial for all pet owners to have set evacuation plans for the animals in their households. Having these in place can make all the difference when it comes to saving animals, and saving ourselves, too. The security and welfare of animals has always been a top priority of mine, and I am proud to introduce this bill as another way to ensure their protection.
