Animal-cruelty bill H.B. 2532 PASSED unanimously. :)

Posted by smallspark on June 24, 2008

The House Judiciary Committee is to vote on an animal-cruelty bill (H.B. 2532) under which anyone except a licensed veterinarian would be forbidden from performing cesarean sections on dogs or removing a dog’s vocal cords.

Knowing anyone other than a vet could and DID do this (in any way they so chose) makes me terribly sad. I’m so glad it passed.

I’m holding my breath for HB 2525.

PA Puppy Mill Legislation HB 2525 is on the floor June 24th!

Posted by smallspark on June 22, 2008

If you’ve seen the Oprah show on this subject, maybe you understand how important, though minor, this law will be for those constantly pregnant animals forced to live their ENTIRE life in an open, small, wire-floored cage outside with no vet care. The endless rounds of puppies go to stores while Mama suffers.

“Among other essential changes, this bill would double the cage space required for dogs, mandate regular veterinary care, prohibit the stacking of cages, ban wire cage flooring and require that dogs have continuous access to clean water.”

“Passage of HB 2525 is vital if Pennsylvania is to improve conditions for dogs kept in commercial kennels and put an end to the state’s reputation as the “Puppy Mill Capital of the East.”
