Rally for “Libre’s Law”

The Rally for Libre’s Law will be held on the Capitol Steps in Harrisburg, Pennsylania.   Libre’s Law is sponsored by Senator Rich Alloway in conjunction with the Humane Society of the United States to create stronger penalties for those who commit animal neglect/abuse in the state of PA.   Libre’s Law is named for the puppy who was found near death’s door at a puppy mill in Lancaster County, PA.

No charges were filed against the owner of the puppy mill owner but subsequent charges were eventually filed against the owner by the Lancaster County DA, Craig Stedman which is what spurred Senator Alloway and the HSUS to create Libre’s Law.

Senator Rich Alloway, reps from the HSUS, Speranza Animal Rescue who rescued Libre and Libre, himself, will be in attendance.

Libre’s Law comes on the heels after Libre, a 4-month old Boston Terrier puppy, was found near death’s door in a puppy mill in Lancaster County, PA on July 2nd.    Had it not been for a produce driver/Lancaster County SPCA volunteer,  Libre would’ve died from dehydration,  starvation, and in  infected open wound with maggots.   Libre’s case has made national and international news with public outrage from around the world.

Because of what happened, Senator Alloway and the HSUS have teamed up to create Libre’s Law which will better define what animal neglect is and to create stiffer penalties instead of the usual slap-on-the-wrist animal abusers receive in the state of PA.   Changes have been needed for a long time.

A press conference will be held at 12 Noon.

The Rally for Libre’s Law will be at 12:15 PM.

Participants are asked to officially register through Senator Alloway’s web site. Additional information and an official registration link will be posted soon.
