New Law Makes it Illegal for Owners to Leave Dogs Out in The Cold

In Pennsylvania, State legislators passed a law that makes it illegal to leave your furry, friend/family member tied up outside for more than 30 minutes if its colder than 32 degrees or warmer than 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The law was inspired after a rescue dog named "Libre", which ironically enough, means "free" or "liberty" in Spanish.


Libre's Law

At only seven weeks old, Libre was discovered in Souther Lancaster County living in deplorable conditions. He had signs of immense trauma, neglect and abuse from the hands of his owners. An anonymous phone call helped liberate Libre from his negligent captures.


Since his discovery, he has recovered well and now inspires law-changes that protects animals from inhuman humans. Jail-time & fines - now available!


In Pennsylvania, anyone found in violation of "Libres Law", will face a stiff fine, as well as 6 months to one year in jail.


Lancaster County Animal Coalition

"This won't stop animal cruelty, but it will put an emphasis on the importance of justice for their suffering. The law recognizes their pain and what they deserve." said Jennifer Nields, cruelty officer for Lancaster County Animal Coalition. The Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association added "its an incredible victory for animals"
