Sevilla’s Law continues our mission to provide:
“Sevilla’s Law”, Florida Senate Bill 416/House Bill 833, was indefinitely postponed and withdrawn from consideration during the 2022 Florida Legislative session. While understandably disappointed, we are not deterred. We will continue our animal cremation consumer protection mission and “Sevilla’s Law” will be refiled in 2023.
“Sevilla’s Law” is a great example of the American constitutional process; a citizen/constituent taking an idea to their legislator resulting in Senate Bill 416/House Bill 833.
“Sevilla’s Law” has been fortunate to have a great legislative team and we can’t thank them enough. We look forward to continuing to work with them.

It’s a lot of work to ensure your bill stands out amongst the multitude of bills and amendments. At every step of the way there are actions to take, support to garner and deadlines to meet. Out of 2,500 bills filed between both chambers in the 2022 Florida Legislative Session, only 275 were passed. That’s a lot of bills competing for every legislator’s attention and getting “Sevilla’s Law” noticed has proven a challenge.
Going into the 2023 Legislative Session, let’s work together to make the Pet Crematorium Industry transparent and accountable. Quite simply, shouldn’t this industry be responsible for their actions and there be consequences for deceptive acts, fraud and unfair trade practices?
I am constantly asked if I am lobbyist and/or attorney? My reply is, “No, I am Sevilla’s mom. I am her voice.” “Sevilla’s Law” will continue our mission to provide transparency and accountability in the pet death care process, consumer protection for contracted pet cremation services and dignity for our beloved furry family members.
To quote Dave Frishberg’s Schoolhouse Rock “I’m Just A Bill”:
“I'm just a bill.
Yes, I'm only a bill.
And I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill.
Well, it's a long, long journey.
To the capital city.
It's a long, long wait.
While I'm sitting in committee.
But I know I'll be a law someday.
At least I hope and pray that I will.
But today I am still just a bill.”
We hope you will continue to support Sevilla’s Law and urge others to join us. Please don’t hesitate to contact us and thank you for your consideration.
Florida Senate Bill 526/House Bill 1095 “Sevilla’s Law” did not become law during the 2021 Florida Legislative Session. It is being refiled in the 2022 Legislative Session.
We continue our mission to provide accountability in the pet death care process, consumer protection for contracted pet cremation services and dignity for our beloved furry family members.
Most people do not realize the time intensive process to get a bill passed into law. We didn’t really understand it until we started doing this on a 24/7 basis. There is no down time; there is always something to do, schedule, plan and implement.
Added to the grassroots organization and effort involved, it is simple math in the sheer number of other bills that you are competing with to gain the Legislator’s attention. Your bill has to stand out. There were 5772 bills and amendments filed in the 2021 Legislative Session. Only 275 bills passed out of both the House and Senate.
That’s why we work so hard to get “Sevilla’s Law” noticed. It is extremely gratifying when I call a Legislator’s office and they say they are aware of Sevilla’s Law, follow it and read all our emails.
Going into the 2022 Legislative Session, let’s work together to make the Pet Crematorium Industry accountable. Wouldn’t you agree everyone should be responsible for their actions?
I am constantly asked if I am lobbyist and/or attorney? My reply is, “I am Sevilla’s mom. I am her voice.”
Out of this tragedy, let there be change. This is Sevilla’s legacy.
Thank you for your interest in Sevilla’s Law. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or just want to discuss. We’d love to hear from you.
