To the New Jersey State Legislature for enacting Patrick’s Law, S 1303.

The New Jersey legislator has passed S 1303 known as Patrick’s Law in honor of a dog who was starved and then abandoned by his owner. The bill is before Governor Chris Christie for signature.

The bill calls for tougher measures that would increase civil and criminal penalties for animal abuse and neglect and creates a separate offense if an individual is charged with the “needless killing” of an animal.

Take Action: New Jersey residents, thank your legislators for enacting this law and for protecting the animals of your state. Let your governor know you want the bill signed into law. Residents of other states, if your legislators are considering enacting tougher animal cruelty laws, let them know you support them.
