PA Senate bill SB #1245 has been proposed to help offset the cost to pet foster families helping the military through eligible foster programs like PACT’s Military Foster Program.

We’re asking that you petition your local representatives and PA State Senator Mike Brubaker to request their support in bringing forth this bill for review before the PA Finance Committee.

If supported by Senator Brubaker, Chairman of the Finance Committee, and voted before the Finance Committee it will move to the Senate floor to be voted into law.

SB #1245 offers PA income tax credits for pet foster homes helping deployed PA military service members. These families generously foster the animals of deployed military service men and women from up to two months to as long as two years. This bill will provide a $100.00 PA income tax credit for each three consecutive months of uncompensated pet fostering to eligible foster homes that offer free foster care to the pets of a Pennsylvanian service member on active duty.
