HB371 – SUPPORT!!!!!

HB371 would allow a Marylander to take a $100 tax credit for a dog or cat they adopt from a shelter, SPCA or humane society, or rescue. This is a great idea not only for animal lovers, but for anyone interested in bringing municipal operating costs down. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do, AND because increasing pet adoption just makes good economic sense. The longer an animal stays at a shelter, the more costly it is to harbor that animal.  To be perfectly blunt, doesn’t it makes more fiscal sense to put that pet in a forever home (adoption fees = revenue) than it does to kill it (it costs money)?  Of course it does. 

Please drop a line to the House Ways and Means Committee and ask them to save a life.  SUPPORT HB371!!
