At the top of my list for potential animal welfare legislation is a law that would keep our pets safe from domestic violence. Commonly called a pet protection order, this law would enable domestic violence victims to include their pets in domestic violence restraining orders.
Recently, Ohio became the 28th state to pass a Pet Protection Order. (See the National Link Coalition January 2015 piece below.) Note our neighboring states in Minnesota, Illinois and Iowa have such a law in place. What's holding Wisconsin back? Let's be #29!
