I signed long and hard initially...I will NOT sign any longer because enacting harsher penalties for animal abuse and then NOT applying to law to Ms. Curtis of Patrick the Miracle Dog fame is an OXYMORON!!!!

I didn't notice a large number of animal cruelty violations during the two years I spent in NJ, but I am quite pleased to know that there will be fewer now.

This is a good thing. However, it should be made retroactive so that the monster who abused and tortured and left poor Patrick to die in a most unspeakable way would be duly charged by this law , as well. That would not fix what Keisha Curtis has done, but it would be appropriate.

So glad that New Jersey has this in place now. Every state should have this, or more across the board.

The best thing of all is that Patrick has come through all of this with his life and people that truly care for him. People, he needs to remain with. He has been through hell and back and still, he is a sweet, trusting being. He deserves a wonderful life from hereon in.

Noted & Signed. That pos should be behind bars awaiting to be euthanized. How can anyone do that to a defenseless animal and just go on with their life like nothing is wrong. Only sociopaths/psychopaths do this. This just makes my blood boil. Thanks, Cher.

So signed!!!! Why can't the judges enforce the animal laws in the US? Us has some great animal laws, but it seems to be impossible to make the judges impose them, unfortunately!!!
Thanks Cher for yet a great post!
