"The greatness of humanity is not in
being human, but in being humane"
... Mahatma Gandhi

Hail to Victoria
January, 2019. Two local lawmakers team up to take
on puppy mills ... State Sen. Andy Dinniman, D-19 of
West Whiteland, and Sen. Tom Killion, R-9 of Middletown,
announced reintroduced bipartisan legislation, to prohibit the sale
of commercially raised dogs, cats, and rabbits in pet stores across
Pennsylvania. Under the legislation, stores will be allowed to
source from shelters and rescues and offer homeless animals
for adoption, enabling them to be part of the pet overpopulation
solution. In addition, the bill requires those advertising dogs for sale to provide their
license number, name, and address in all advertisements to increase transparency.
The bill, dubbed Victoria's Law, in honor of Victoria, a 10-year-old German
Shepherd puppy mill survivor, rescued By Finding Shelter Animal Rescue, is designed
to move the pet market toward more humane sources by prohibiting Pennsylvania pet
stores from selling puppies, kittens, and rabbits coming from inhumane mills that treat
mother dogs, cats, and rabbits as breeding machines and their offspring as products.
Victoria's Law is similar to laws enacted in the state of California, Maryland, and
more than 290 localities across the nation, including Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. It
comes on the heels of the 2017-2018 legislation; the movement to enact Libre's Law
(Act 10), the most comprehensive animal protection overhaul in the last three decades,
and the Animals in Distress Law (Act 104) to protect pets from distress in motor
vehicles by allowing public safety professionals to remove unattended pets without
liability for damages.

Delco Cares ... Animal Care & Control Program
In the Fall of 2018, Delaware County Council formed a sub-committee to address
the challenges of stray animals in the county. The committee discussed utilizing a
County-owned building to house an animal intake and adoption facility. Committee
members include Council Chairman John McBlain, Councilman Kevin Madden, experts
in animal control and rescue, and law enforcement.
April, 2019. Delaware County sought the input of residents in order to ascertain
the public's perspective. After review of the public's commentary, the county sought
proposals from qualified respondents to assist in the design and retrofit of the existing
County-owned building and operate the County's Animal Care & Control Program.

APPROVED ... 2019!
The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission administers a program of
historical markers to capture the memory of people, places, events, and innovations that
have affected the lives of Pennsylvanians over the centuries since William Penn founded
his Commonwealth.
One of the 18 subjects approved in 2019: The Women's Pa. Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals - Philadelphia. This early animal welfare organization
established the first animal shelter in the nation and became an inspiration and model for
similar groups. Founded in 1869, principally by social reformer Caroline Earle White,
the organization pioneered humane standards in animal capture and transport, housing
and sanitation, employee training, and euthanasia. It also initiated educational programs
and organized the nation's first junior humane societies. *
