California Veterans Get Pet Adoption Fees Waived in 2020

Beginning in 2020, military veterans in California won’t have to pay adoption fees at animal shelters throughout the state.

This is all under Senate Bill 245 which states a companion animal could be beneficial to veterans struggling with PTSD. Senate Bill 245 was introduced by Senator Ling Ling Chang (R-Diamodn Bar) and was signed by Gov. Newsom.  The bill passed 76-0 out of the State Assembly and 37-0 out of the State Senate.

California’s existing veteran driver’s license can be used starting January 1st to confirm eligibility.
