Kennel Owners Shoot 80 Dogs

On July 24th, Dog Wardens inspected E and A kennel in Berks County, PA and found violations in kennel sanitation and maintenance resulting in several citations. Instead of correcting the violations the owners decided to shoot 80 dogs and voluntarily close their kennel. According to PA law owners of pets can legally shoot their animal if they choose. This law would be changed though if house bill 2525 were to pass. The bill would make it mandatory for all kennels to have veterinarians euthanize their animals. The bill would still allow dog owners to put their pet down by shooting it if they so desire. No charges will be filed against the kennel owners.
