Puppy Mills and HB2525 in Pa

Someone emailed me about a puppy mill in Pa that killed 80 dogs instead of vetting them. I was asked to have anyone in Pa contact their Senator to let them know how disgusted they are about this.

I forwarded to my SIL in Pa and asked her to email her Senator, which she did.
This was his response:

Dear Friend,

Thank you for contacting my office in support of tougher dog abuse laws for Pennsylvania kennels. I completely agree with you and am a strong supporter of this legislation.

As you may know, House Bill 2525 recently passed the House by an overwhelming majority. It is currently in the Senate Appropriations Committee.

The tragedy in Berks County, where kennel owners decided to kill 80 dogs rather than pay for proper veterinary care, highlights the need for stricter dogs laws.

I recognize the urgency of this matter, as there are only a handful of days left in this legislative session. Know that I continue to work diligently to see that this legislation is approved and that it addresses the scourge of puppy mills head on.

Again, I want to emphasize that I share your concerns and am working to put an end to puppy mills in Pennsylvania.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns that may Adminse in the future.

Andrew E. Dinniman
State Senator – 19th District
My question is does anyone know about HB2525? I haven't had time to look it up and see what it is about. Should we be supporting or opposing this bill?

Thanks for you time.
