Lennox Locked In His Inhumane Belfast Council Contracted Kennel Surrounded With Sawdust For Bedding & His Own Faeces
Abandoning a dog means killing it. If you can no longer take care of your pet(s) please find a no-kill rescue or shelter.
When the puppy store says, “We get our puppies from private breeders” this is the “private breeder”.
This is what a little love can do. This is Francis the Pit Bull. The photos on the left side are what she looked like when she was first brought into the animal shelter that I worked at. She had been neglected & left to die. I fell in love immediately and took her home. The photos on the right are a little less than a year later. A very happy & well fed puppy who now lives with my mom (who spoils her rotten). :)
INDIANAPOLIS — The Senate approved a bill Thursday that would raise the penalty for attending an animal-fighting contest from a Class A misdemeanor to a Class D felony.As a Class D felony, those who attend an animal-fighting contest would be subject to a fine up to $10,000, or imprisonment for six months to three years.
State Sen. Jim Arnold, D-La Porte, authored Senate Bill 11, which aims to curtail animal-fighting contests by imposing greater penalties on spectators. The bill was approved with bipartisan support in the Senate by a 38-10 vote, sending it to the House for further consideration.
“I’m happy to have received bipartisan support on an issue that I take very seriously,” Arnold said in a press release. “This bill is a necessary step in protecting animals’ rights and ensuring that they are properly cared for.”
Indiana currently has the 32nd strictest dog-fighting laws, ranked below neighboring states Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and Michigan. Under current state law, spectatorship is a criminal charge cited as cruelty to an animal. SB 11 would repeal this law and warrant the same punishment for spectators that currently exists for promoters and sponsors.
