Assemblymember Chris Holden Introduces Bill to Make Pet Adoption Easier for Active Duty Military Service Members

For immediate release:

Sacramento, CA –Assemblymember Chris Holden introduced legislation, AB 121 that waives the pet adoption fee for Active Duty Military Service Members.  

“Given how profound the emotional and physical benefits of having a pet can be, we should make pet adoption as easy as possible for our country’s heroes,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden.
