California could become next no-kill state as governor puts budget funds toward ending euthanizing

California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday when he unveiled his new budget proposal that he will put money toward animal shelters with the goal of becoming a no-kill state. 

Newsom’s budget, for fiscal years 2020-2021, would give $50 million to the University of California Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program so that it could create a new grant program for animal shelters.

The ultimate goal is to help local shelters and “achieve the state’s policy goal that no adoptable or treatable dog or cat should be euthanized,” the budget summary reads.
