SB1882 Vote Update

The Illinois Pet Lovers Association is grateful for the favorable bipartisan support and vote for SB1882.  While we are encouraged by this week’s results, we are fully aware that additional negotiations are necessary to ensure that our pets are compassionately safeguarded by the state of Illinois.  We can all agree that an approach that protects pets, Illinois consumers and Illinois small business owners is the best strategy for all involved.
The IPLA appreciates the spirit of good will demonstrated at our Statehouse and urge our members as well as others to continue a respectful dialogue as we move forward.  Puppies and our families are counting on us to work together and enact model legislation that 49 other states can adopt to protect pets across the country.
