Legislation to allow the Office of Dog Law Enforcement to keep fines for violations of the dog law is awaiting action in the Senate. Please contact your senator today and ask for support for HB 913.
Pets left unattended in hot cars can suffer needlessly and even die. Thankfully, Pennsylvania lawmakers are considering new legislation known as HB 1516 to address this issue and help protect dogs and cats. HB 1516 will allow law enforcement to enter an unattended vehicle to rescue a dog or cat, without liability for any damages caused in doing so. An amendment to HB 1516 will also be voted on that will finally ban live pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania. Live pigeon shoots are outdated and gruesome shooting contest events where dazed birds are launched from boxes so contestants can shoot them down for prizes. Please help stop these two forms of cruelty by speaking out in support of HB 1516.
