ABA Update

This from Joan Schaffner, chair of the ABA/TIPS animal law committee:

1) The ABA House of Delegates has approved the Model Act Governing Standards for the Care and Disposition of Disaster Animals. (Yeah! Finally! This means that the ABA will now recommend it to the states. Kudos to cmte founder Barbara Gislason, as well as Jim Carr, David Favre, and about a dozen or more other ABA members who were also involved in this effort.)

2) The history of the ABA/TIPS animal law committee is now available online - thanks to Mariann McDermott. Check it out at:
