SACRAMENTO, CA - A bill introduced to in the California Assembly will change laws concerned with animal shelters.

The bill would replace the word "pound" with "animal shelter" and replace "destroying an animal" with "humanely euthanizing the animal."
The Sacramento Bee's Capitol Alert talked to Blumfield's spokesperson, who said the law would be a more "enlightened" guide to animal control.

"Spaying and neutering is the answer, not some stupid word change," Jill McNamara-Twiss said on News10's Facebook Page.
