What Is Florida Rescue Act?

FARA improves wellbeing of shelter staff

Studies show that staff members
responsible for killing animals in shelters
are vulnerable to emotional trauma,
exhaustion, and burnout. FARA would
spare staff from killing animals, when those
animals have readily available lifesaving
option

FARA Saves Lives

A 2011 statewide survey of rescue groups if
Florida State found that 63% of non-profit
animal rescue groups have had at least one
Florida state shelter refuse to work
collaboratively with them and then turn
around and kill they very animals they were
willing to save. Studies in other states
show that when these laws are passed,
lifesaving goes up. In just one County in
California, rescue transfers increased 4,000
a year when it passed a rescue access law.

FARA saves taxpayers money
FARA is modeled after a similar law which
has been in effect in California since 1998.
An analyssis of that law found that sending
animals to non-profit animal rescue
organizations rather than killing them saved
the City and County of San Francisco
$486,480 in publicity funded animal control
costs
.
The same statewide survey of rescue
groups in Florida State also found that 45%
of respondents are afraid to complain about
inhumane conditions or practices at Florida
State shelters because if they did
complain, they would not be allowed to
rescue animals, thus allowing those
inhumane conditions to continue.

FARA levels the playing field
All non-profit organizations have identical
rights and responsibilities before the law.
FARA seeks to protect those rights by
leveling the playing field between the large
non-profits which have all the power and the
small non-profits that are prevented from
fulfilling their lifesaving mission when these
larger organizations refuse to collaborate
with them in order to save more lives.

FARA specifically excludes organizations
with a volunteer, staff member, director,
and/or officer with a conviction for animal
neglect, cruelty, and/or dog fighting, and
suspends the organization while such
charges are pending.

FARA is based on a law in California which
was passed in 1998 with overwhelming
bipartisan support (96-12), and passed in
Delaware unanimously. Similar legislation
is currently pending in Minnesota and New
York.

Florida Survey Shows Animals Needlessly Killed

“Florida  Animal Rescue Act, SB 818, HB 597, would  make  it  illegal  for a shelter  to  kill  an
animal when a qualified non-profit rescue organization is willing to save that animal.”

A statewide survey of rescue groups across Florida State found that 63% of non-profit animal rescue
groups have had at least one Florida state shelter refuse to work collaboratively with them and then turn
around and kill they very animals they were willing to save. The most common reason given was shelters
either having a policy of not working with rescue groups or being openly hostile to doing so.

It makes no sense to kill animals in the face of cost-effective alternatives, nor does it make sense that
taxpayers are spending money to kill animals when non-profit organizations are willing and able to save them
at private expense. California’s “rescue access” law saves tens of thousands of animals every year at no cost
to the public.

The same survey also found that 45% of respondents are afraid to complain about inhumane conditions or
practices at Florida shelters because if they did complain, they would not be allowed to rescue animals, thus
allowing those inhumane conditions to continue.

In addition, 81% of rescue groups that have tried to work with more than one shelter said that different
shelters have different rescue access policies, with more than half of those respondents saying that criteria
for saving animals changes depending on what staff is on duty or whether staff changes. This creates
inefficiency and limits the number of animals who can and should be saved.

The Florida Animal Rescue Act would set statewide standards for rescue group access and make it illegal
for a shelter to kill an animal when a qualified non-profit rescue organization is willing to save that animal.
Not only will it save lives, save taxpayer money, and mandate public-private partnerships, the Florida Animal
Rescue Act is consistent with public health and safety, and improves the public satisfaction with the job
government is doing.
