Daniel “the Miracle Dog,” the namesake of Senate Bill 1329, who gained national fame for surviving an Alabama gas chamber. Today, Daniel lives happily with the Dwyer family in Nutley, New Jersey, where he has embraced a new life as a symbol against pet animal gas chambers.
I want to update you with good news in our efforts to end the gassing of dogs and cats in Pennsylvania.
I recently sat down with state Representative John Maher, chair of the House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, and we are now working together to put an end to this cruel and inhumane practice. The good news is that there should be a bill coming out of the legislature by the end of this session to end the gassing of dogs and cats in the Commonwealth. In light of this development, the rally originally scheduled for Tuesday, September 25, in Harrisburg has been canceled.
Rest assured that I will keep you posted on the latest news and developments as they emerge. I also want to thank you for your ongoing support as we work to end the gassing of dog and cats in Pennsylvania. The strong and consistent support and lobbying efforts of people like you have been a driving force as we move toward our goal.
Together, and along with the support of Rep. Maher, I feel very confident that we can ban pet animal gas chambers in Pennsylvania this year.
