After nearly 35 years and a number of amendments, Pennsylvania’s animal cruelty code was finally overhauled. Act 10 (HB 1238) was signed into law by Gov. Tom Wolf in June and went into effect in August. Nicknamed “Libre’s Law” after a Boston terrier named Libre was rescued, recovered from severe neglect and became the focus of the bill. Act 10 updates and clarifies existing statutes and increases penalties to those convicted of abusing animals. Hear from those who diligently worked to make those changes into law. The topics include:
- What has changed
- What attorneys need to know and Q and A
