Asked City Council to Toughen Up Animal Laws
It all started when my neighbor began tying his boxer puppy outside for endless hours without food, water or shelter. I filed an animal cruelty/neglect complaint with the local police department, but after seeing the same thing happening to other dogs in my community, I decided to take it a step further. This April, I go before the city council of Eudora, KS, to request that an anti-tether law and tougher animal cruelty laws be added to our community ordinances. This has been a remarkable journey for me.
