For Immediate Release
HARRISBURG – Senator Richard Alloway II (R-33) introduced legislation to strengthen the state’s Dog Law and prevent animal cruelty.
Alloway’s proposal, Senate Bill 1107, will target kennel owners who lose their license due to violations of the Dog Law. The legislation would prevent violators from continuing to operate a kennel by having a license issued to an immediate family member or another individual who resides at the same address.
“The General Assembly has taken significant action to fortify the state’s Dog Law in recent years to improve living conditions at kennels and crack down on puppy mills,” Alloway said. “However, additional steps are necessary to protect vulnerable animals from mistreatment at the hands of kennel owners who have already been disciplined for animal cruelty.”
