Pennsylvania considers tax credit to encourage dog and cat adoptions – DVM

New legislation in Pennsylvania aims to boost dog and cat adoption rates by offering a tax credit to residents.

House Bill 1765, introduced Sept. 26 and immediately referred to the state’s Committee on Finance, would give a $300 tax credit to any resident who adopts a cat or dog from a qualifying shelter, humane society or rescue group. The credit would only be available until Dec. 31, 2013, but would apply to any adoptions made after Dec. 31, 2010, according to the legislation.
