Oreo’s Law

February
24

This just in: Following the tragic killing of an abused dog by the ASPCA in New York City, despite the offer of a No Kill sanctuary to guarantee her lifetime care, two New York state legislators have introduced a bill to prevent this from happening again. Named after the dog sacrificed to expediency by the ASPCA, “Oreo’s Law” would make it illegal for a shelter in New York State to kill an animal if a rescue group or No Kill shelter is willing to save that animal’s life. You can read all about this here.

Here’s poor Oreo.
