Christi Metropole with the Stray Cat Alliance delivered thousands of signatures to the Governor's office protesting his proposed repeal of some provisions of the Hayden Law. That 1998 measure required shelters to hold pets in their care longer. Metropole says the law is already suspended and it should stay that way until the economy improves.
"We're very proud of how well we treat our animals and we want to keep it that way. And we understand that the state can't fund it now and we totally respect that."
