Breaking news! Good news for pets, NJ passes bill to protect pets from domestic abuse
This is big news! Just last week on our radio show we were talking about laws to protect pets and domestic registries. Well, NJ just passed a law, A1633. The law permits the court to include animals in domestic violence restraining orders.
The measure’s sponsor, Assemblywoman Connie Wagner, in a statement after passage, said:
We’ve heard so many stories of pets being abused or even killed as retaliation against a partner when a relationship goes sour. Oftentimes it’s done without thinking as an attempt to hurt the other partner, but whether it’s intentional or not, animals should not have to suffer. This is a humane measure designed to protect innocent pets from being the victim of a domestic dispute.
Yeah for Connie Wagner and yeah for pets in NJ. Hopefully this type of legislation will pass in other states soon.
