White proposes tax credit for adopting pet from shelter

State Rep. Jesse White, D-Cecil, has introduced legislation that would provide a $300 tax credit to people who adopt a dog or cat from a Pennsylvania animal shelter.
White said with the economic downturn and recent flooding, Pennsylvania’s animal shelters, associations, and rescue agencies have seen a dramatic increase in the number of abandoned and homeless dogs and cats statewide. “This bill would give people incentive to choose their dog or cat from an animal shelter to help offset the expense of caring for the pet. But it would also relieve the strain on overcrowded animal shelters, keep abandoned pets off the streets and give thousands of homeless pets a new home,” White said.
The credit would be per year until Dec. 31, 2013, and would apply to adoptions from a pound, shelter, society, or other rescue association for the prevention of cruelty to animals.

Sar’s comment:
What a Fabulous Idea! I wish they would introduce this bill in Australia too! What forward thinking politician could make this happen I wonder?
