An amended version of Arkansas House Bill 1717 is again on the agenda of the House Agriculture, Forestry and Economic Development Committee for tomorrow, March 29. Among other provisions, this bill would require breeders who offer for sale one dog or cat through public media to register with, pay fees, and submit information to the Arkansas Agriculture Department.

Hawaii House Bill 1516 seeks to allow “any duly incorporated humane society or any duly incorporated society for the prevention of cruelty to animals” holding an animal to ask a court to order the forfeiture of a person’s animal even before criminal charges are filed. The American Kennel Club believes that, as currently written, HB 1516 is constitutionally suspect and infringes upon animal owners’ property rights. All concerned Hawaii residents are strongly encouraged to contact the members of the Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee, which will consider the bill on Friday, March 31, and urge them to not approve HB 1516.
