Sometimes it feels like ending animal cruelty is an uphill battle. Barkpost has covered tales of neglect and mistreatment all too often in the past. As much as we love sharing the stories of pups who overcome awful circumstances to go on to happy lives, we all wish we could see change on a much bigger scale. Lawmakers in Massachusetts may soon help to bring about that large scale change.
Many states have laws against animal cruelty, but there’s never been a way to prevent offenders from adopting or rescuing new animals, who will most certainly become their victims.
That is until now.
We hope all states follow suit, as legislation like this will dramatically reduce the suffering of animals.
