When it comes to doing awesome legal things, Colorado is leading the way!
Many states have a specific breed of dog as their state dog, but not Colorado!
Governor John Hickenlooper, along with his rescue dog, Sky, signed the bill into law at the beginning of this week!
The bill was originally proposed by schoolchildren and was signed by the Gov. at the Denver Animal Shelter.
So now any dog or cat adopted from a shelter in Colorado is a state pet!
That's so great!
Way to care about the animals and raise shelter adoption awareness, Gov. Hickenlooper!
