I want to share a cause that's very important to me in the hopes that maybe it will become important to you as well.
Nitro, a rottweiler was brought to a K9 training facility here in Ohio. The owners believed their precious dog to be safe however that was far from the reality of the situation. Nitro, along with seven others, were dead. Starved to death. The man responsible for these animals was charged with 19 counts of animal cruelty but 15 of those charges were dropped. He was charged with 4 counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty and only spent four months in jail!

Nitro's Law HB108 would make animal cruelty like this a FELONY as opposed to just a misdemeanor. We are working so hard for this to actually become a law. Over on the Nitro Foundation Facebook page, many of us call our representative to urge him to move this to the floor for a vote. So far, no luck. But if more people would take the time to call/fax/or email, maybe we could gain his attention.
So I'm urging you to take a stand for those who can't speak for themselves. If you live in Ohio call Rep Batchelder at (614) 466-8140 and tell him that you are a registered voter in the State of Ohio and that Nitro's Law HB108 is very important to you and you would like to know when this bill will be moved to the floor for a VOTE!
If you do not live in Ohio, please take a moment to send an email to him at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't just do this one time. Do it every day! Animal abuse has to stop. Stiffer penalties need to be put into place.
Think about it...and then I hope you will act!
Thanks so much! :)
