The Alliance’s Executive Director, Bob Baker, vigorously defended the animal disposition process at a hearing before the House Agriculture Committee this week. This was necessary due to the introduction of HB 2204 which seeks to destroy the current disposition hearing which enables abused and neglected animals to be removed from the hands of their abusers.
Instead of merely arguing for the welfare of the animals, which regrettably has little weight among numerous legislators, Bob took a different approach. The sponsor and supporters of HB 2204 argued that this legislation was needed to protect innocent animal owners from losing their animals. So, Bob turned the tables on them by pointing out that their legislation not only jeopardizes the welfare of animals but actually punishes innocent animal owners.
