PA Alert: Your Rights Are Under Attack. Ask Governor Corbett to Veto HB 82!

(Tuesday, July 02, 2013)
Yesterday the Senate passed and the House concurred with House Bill 82, which could violate the rights of responsible animal owners. While several positive amendments have been made, the measure could still force owners to relinquish their animals when they are charged with animal cruelty, even if the charges are frivolous and/or are ultimately dismissed.

The bill now goes to Governor Corbett.

Pennsylvania residents are strongly encouraged to contact Governor Corbett TODAY and ask him to veto House Bill 82.
