Advocates across the state spoke out against Senate bill Corey Roscoe, Ohio State Director of The Humane Society of the United States, Vicki Deisner of the ASPCA, Dr. Michelle Gonzalez of Rascal Animal Hospital in Dublin, Luke Westerman of the Westerman Family Foundation, Steffen Baldwin of ACT Ohio, and Janet Hoy of the Toledo Area Humane Society all shared their perspective on how the bill will be damaging to people and pets.
“(The bill) is an industry-backed effort that will not reform pet stores in any meaningful way,” Diesner said from the Statehouse steps Thursday. “Instead it will permit the continued importation of inhumanely bred puppy mill dogs into our communities.”
