Oreo_law So there might be some justice after all for Oreo, the now dead pit bull that had a bit of an attitude and was subsequently murdered by the ASPCA, despite an animal rescue group’s frantic pleas to take the bitch in. All of which, we know learn, went completely unanswered: emails, phone calls, physical visits to the facility.

Evidently, survival is not an option for abused dogs at the ASPCA, but that could all change if Oreo’s Law passes. The City Room reports:

Under a new bill being proposed in the Legislature called Oreo’s Law, animal rescue organizations like Pets Alive would be allowed to take custody on request of an animal scheduled to be euthanized by an animal shelter.

If passed, this law could mark a huge victory for animal rescue groups and common sense alike. |City Room|
