The Nitro Foundation is encouraging individuals to reach out to law makers and ask them to move forward on this crucial legislation.

Here is what you can do to help:

Please phone Chairman Tim Grendell at (614) 644-7718 or send an email to Chairman Grendall is able to decide whether this crucial legislation will move forward for a vote.

If the laws do not change, animal cruelty charges in Ohio will continue to be nothing more than a misdemeanor. Cruelty of this magnitude deserves a felony charge. Currently, Ohio is only 1 of 5 states that abuse to a companion animal is not considered a felony - bottom line, this is wrong.

As for Croley - he ended up only facing 4 misdemeanor cruelty charges for his despicable actions. The suffering that the dogs endured at High Caliber K-9 in unimaginable. The laws need to change.

Animal abusers must pay for their crimes. Please take a moment and speak up - voice your opinion for Nitro and all the other companion animals that have suffered at the hands of a human.
