  • My story about losing Riley to canine parvo virus had a happy ending , because we learned how vulnerable puppies are and we met Blue, a dog who has Riley’s spirit and is a welcome addition to our family.

And this story has a happy ending, because laws are changing and I hope to see that these laws expand to protect all animals.

Animal cruelty is a Class C Felony in Washington State and carries up to a 5 year prison term.  To learn about the animal cruelty laws in your state, you can check out the State Animal Cruelty Laws page on the ASPCA’s site.
