Posted Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Dick Goddard’s Law Ohio lawmakers will soon consider a law making it a felony to knowingly injure or kill a pet or deprive it of food, water or shelter. Earlier this year, the legislature made it a felony for kennel owners and workers to mistreat animals. Wednesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, we'll discuss the legislature's move to protect pets and we'll learn about a number of Northeast Ohioans committed to rescuing and caring for mistreated or abandoned pets. Join host Mike McIntyre.
