Kim introduces bipartisan Bring Animals Relief and Kibble Act


U.S. Rep. Young Kim (R-CA) is amongst 20 unique cosponsors of a bipartisan invoice tackling rising meals shortages at animal shelters throughout the nation. 

The Bring Animals Relief and Kibble (BARK) Act of 2021, H.R. 5684, which U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) sponsored on Oct. 22, would offer legal responsibility protections to folks and companies that make good religion donations of meals and pet provides to nonprofits and shelters, in response to a invoice abstract offered by Rep. Kim’s workplace. 

“Nearly eight million animals currently in shelters are struggling due to increased food shortages during the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, millions of pounds of usable pet supplies are wasted each year that could be going to animals in need,” Rep.  Kim stated. “I’m glad to help lead this commonsense, bipartisan effort to reduce waste in landfills and support animal shelters in need.”
