Good news!  The voices of responsible dog owners were heard in Montgomery.

Yesterday, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed House Bill 235, which authorizes food service establishments to allow pet dogs in outdoor restaurant seating areas if the company wishes to do so. The new law takes effect on August 1, 2021. Read AKC Government Relations’ legislative alert in support of HB 235.

Please take a moment to thank Rep. Steve McMillan for his sponsorship of HB 235 at or (334) 261-0523. You can also send thanks to Gov. Ivey via this online form.
