Governor Raimondo has signed into law a pair of bills, H. 5433 and S. 465 that expand authorities’ ability to seize animals suspected of neglect or abuse.

The AKC abhors animal cruelty and supports enforcement of strong animal cruelty laws.  For more information on these bills and AKC’s concerns, read our previous legislative alert.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:  If you reside in Rhode Island and are interested in working to fix the newly approved legal language, please contact AKC Government Relations (AKC GR) who will provide additional information and direction as our action plan develops.  Please contact AKC GR at
