Hosted By Debbie Dahmer

Guest will be: Midge Grinstead- Kansas Senior State Director - The Humane Society of the United States

There are three issues Midge Grinstead has worked on last legislated session:  SB 97 was a bad bill allowing human contact with big cats 40 lbs and under and de-listing Clouded Leopards from the dangerous regulated animals act.  Midge also worked on an exotic bill to add non-human primates and wolves to the dangerous regulated animals act (HB2737)

The other bill was brought forth from the Dept of Agriculture and updated the Kansas . Pet Animal Act including banning CO chambers, allowing shelters to do mobile adoptions and giving the rescue groups representation on the board as well as many other positive changes for animal welfare like having water available to all animals under the pet animal act.  This bill was supported by the Kansas Pet Animal Coalition, large and small animal welfare groups, the Kansas Animal Control Association and many others.
