State senate passes bill creating registry for convicted animal abusers

This is an excellent idea. I wish we have that here in Canada.

ALBANY – The New York State Senate has passed legislation that will require those that violate Buster’s Law by abusing animals register their name and address with the division of criminal justice services, undergo a psychiatric evaluation and will also ban them from ever owning a pet again, Senator Greg Ball (R,C,I-Patterson) announced Tuesday. Buster’s Law, which was passed in 1999, made animal cruelty in New York state a felony. The law was named after a cat that was doused in kerosene and lit on fire in 1997. Now Senator Ball has passed a bill in the Senate to take “Buster’s Law” even further and create an animal abuse registry.

Dying guardian hopes to find home for two senior dogs before she is gone

Two elderly dogs in the Dallas, Texas, area will soon be losing their beloved guardian who is dying from stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

The dogs’ guardian shared the following plea for her long-time companions:

Jess and Daisy have been with me since they were pups and are absolutely the loves of my life. But I’m really desperate and need your help.

They’re good, good dogs and will give someone countless love and devotion in their waning years. Please help if you can. Thank you.

The dogs, “Jess,” a 14-year-old male, and “Daisy,” a 13-year-old female, have just a few, short months before their person is gone.
