Summary:
What do seven Ohio companion animal bills all have in common?

They all dealt with animal cruelty and they all died in the 129th General Assembly over the past twelve months!

Ohio legislators have epically failed the state’s companion animals this year. Seven bills seeking to protect them and to strengthen animal welfare laws were introduced and all seven expired without a final hearing and vote.

LA Bans the Sale of Puppy & Kitten Mill Pets

Publication/Event date: 2012-11-12
Publication name: Care2
URL for more info: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/los-angeles-ordinance-bans-retail-animal-sales.html
Summary:
They don’t call it the City of Angels for nothing. We’re not being sarcastic — Los Angeles has a serious soft spot for little furry critters. Last month, on Halloween, the L.A. City Council pulled off an impressive trick: formalizing its approval of an ordinance that bans the retail sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits, becoming the largest American city to do so.

ND voters reject animal cruelty measure

Publication/Event date: 2012-11-07
Publication name: In Forum
URL for more info: http://www.inforum.com/event/article/id/379699/group/News/
Summary:
North Dakota voters handily rejected a measure Tuesday that would have created a felony penalty for malicious cruelty to a dog, cat or horse, but both sides in the contentious struggle vowed to seek changes in state animal cruelty laws at the 2013 Legislature.

With 318 precincts reporting out of 426, the “no” vote led, 132,214 to 66,354 “yes” votes, or 67 percent “no” to 33 percent “yes.” The margin stayed steady throughout the night and reflected decisive votes against the measure in Ramsey, Cavalier and other area counties. The measure also trailed in Grand Forks County but by a slimmer margin, 53 percent to 47 percent with 24 of 27 precincts reporting.
