The LA City Council Tuesday began considering a resolution to support a “Dog and Cat Bill of Rights” that's moving through the state Legislature.
Assembly Bill 1881, introduced by Assemblyman Miguel Santiago, D-Los Angeles, would gives animals the right to:
freedom from exploitation, cruelty, neglect and abuse;
a life of comfort, free of fear, and anxiety;
daily mental stimulation and appropriate exercise;
nutritious food, sanitary water and shelter in an appropriate and safe environment;
preventive and therapeutic health care; and health care, including spaying and neutering to prevent unwanted litters.
