Ohio is one of the least protective states regarding animal care. Why does the Senate in Ohio refuse to realize this?
It is a known fact cruelty to children and cruelty to animals go hand in hand. Is this really the reputation Ohio wants to promote to the rest of the country?
Many years ago, I did a great deal of transporting for Ohio animal rescues. I was asked to go to Sugarcreek to pick up puppies from the auction held there. Ii was handed a teacup poodle and, sadly, maggots were coming from her rectum. It was totally disgusting to me that any living thing would be treated in such a manner.
S.B.130 is trying to address some of this and I would hope all will contact your senators and help Ohio to be the state it came be. Puppy mills thrive here due to the lax laws. Ohio can, and should, do better for all living entities, human and animals.
While S.B.130 is not perfect, it is a start. Let’s make Ohio a poster child for animal care.
