SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Animal shelters in California may start waiving adoption fees for all Veterans.

Senate Bill 245 would ban public shelters from charging fees for dogs, cats, or other animals if the person adopting the pet has a valid ID or Driver’s License with the word “Veteran” printed on it. In order to qualify for that license or ID a person must apply and verify his or her veteran’s status, plus pay a fee.
