Ohio: Thank you for all your help and support.
I am so excited to be sending you this message to let you know about a big win for Ohio companion animals. Because of all of your amazing efforts, Governor John Kasich recently signed into law a state budget that includes language mandating that all peace officers in our state be trained to appropriately handle companion animal encounters.
That means that each and every Ohio police officer will now be trained to, among other things, respond safely and humanely to animal-related calls. Officers will also receive training in the use of non-lethal methods of handling dog-related encounters. In other words, for the first time in our state’s history, our officers will all learn how to peacefully respond to the animals they meet every day on the job. That’s what we call a win-win.
This victory could not have been accomplished without you. You’re always there to help when we call on you, and those efforts are why our state, our police and our animals will now be a lot safer.
This is a gigantic step toward the day when we will Save Them All®.
Lee Greenwood, Esq.
