Ky humane lobby day 14

imageYesterday was humane lobby day at the Ky capitol building. The well-attended rally, held in the rotunda, drew attention to the need for stronger animal laws in the state.

The media emcee introduced her rescue dog, Zeke. He was paralyzed and uses a wheelchair to move around. Several speakers spoke to the group.

Joni Jenkins, a state representative, asked everyone to support HB 408, which would make breeding or possessing dogs for dogfighting a crime. Rick J Murphy from Warren Co read a proclamation honoring young Keely, a girl who has been a tireless volunteer at the local animal shelter. Young students from the Depaul School also urged lawmakers to pass stronger laws.image
