Mentor, OH: Ohio Animal Welfare Update, May 23, 2013 Mentor Public Library
The Humane Society of the United States invites our members, supporters, and other animal advocates to join John Dinon, the Ohio Director of Outreach and Engagement, to discuss current issues and learn what you can do for animals in Lake County and Ohio.
Attend the Ohio Animal Welfare Update to discuss pending and proposed animal welfare legislation in the state. Staff from the Lake Humane Society will also be on hand to discuss the important role that local shelters play in their communities.
The presentation will include recent successes, including Ohio's puppy mill bill, dangerous exotic animal restrictions, and the Livestock Care Standards board. We will also discuss ongoing challenges, including passing a felony cockfighting bill and legislation to include pets in personal protection orders (restraining orders), outlaw bestiality, end euthanasia by gas chamber, and other important issues. We will also discuss The HSUS's Farm Animal Protection programs and the the recently formed HSUS Agriculture Advisory Council for Ohio.
RSVP today to learn more about how to help Ohio's animals. Contact John Dinon at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Address: Mentor Public Library 8215 Mentor Ave Mentor, OH 44060 United States
