MANCHESTER TWP – Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) formally introduced Senate Bill 234, also known as Victoria’s Law, with local and state stakeholders. Victoria’s Law would prohibit the sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits in pet stores throughout Pennsylvania, unless sourced from shelters and rescues. This bill would also require advertisers to include license numbers on their advertisements. Victoria is a German Shepherd who was rescued from a Pennsylvania puppy mill after 10 years of breeding. She is now paralyzed as a result of a genetic, neurological disorder called Degenerative Myelopathy, a disease she passed down to the estimated 150-200 puppies she produced while at the puppy mill.
The event was held at the York County SPCA.
