Libre's Law Makes It A Felony To Leave Dogs Out in The Cold
Libre’s Law is the new law signed by governor Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania. Libre’s law provides a safeguard against cruelty, abuse, or neglect of a pet. A portion of the law will protect animals from being left out in cold harsh conditions. If caught mistreating your pet you can be charged with a felony.
One of the safeguards for the pets is that a pet can’t be outside in the cold anywhere below 32 degrees or above 90 degrees Fahrenheit for longer than 30 minutes.
Anyone breaking the law has the probability of facing animal cruelty charges. The punishment can lead up to 7 years in prison with a fine outwards up to $15,000.
This law has been signed to help fight for animal rights and to stop the abusement of animals. Many people believe that this law will make other states take the initiative to push for more animal rights and protection.
