The plight of dogs in puppy mills, the finances of the dog law enforcement office, legislative efforts to protect animals and their people from harm were among te wide-ranging topics Sen. Andy Dinniman and I discussed on Pennsylvania Cable Network's call-in show last night.  

It was the first time in recent memory that PCN has dedicated the call-in show to the topic of animal welfare and boy did we have a lot of ground to cover.

Dinniman, of Chester County, who won the distinction of humane legislator of the year from Humane PA, led the fight for "Daniel's Law," which ended the use of gas chambers in Pennsylvania shelters.

We talked about a host of hot topics: how to address the sheltering crisis in the state, the role of pets in domestic violence cases, the need for expanded accomodations for therapy pets who travel in public with their human partners - and took questions from a statewide audience.

Philly Dawg would like to thank PCN for dedicating the time to animal issues and for including your faithful pet blogger in the discussion. With somewhere in the neighborhood of two dozen animal-related bills percoliating in the legislature right now, we hope there will be an opportunity to revisit the issue in a future broadcast..
