If passed in the Oregon Legislature it will be called Zoe's Law.   It's a law designed to protect animals in kennels from abuse. “Wewere dismayed that the kennel regulations in Oregon are lacking. They cover space requirements and sanitation, but that is about as far as they go.” John and Karen Burton live in Central Oregon.  Bill 2471 is named after their dog, Zoe. Zoe died June first from injuries received while being cared for in a local kennel. John says their goal is now to protect other pets. The multi-faceted law establishes background checks for employees, sets up specific protocols for animal care. The law would also establish a website administered through the Department of Agriculture which would be used to list kennels involved in abuse cases. Karen says there has been a lot of support for the legislation and prospects for passage look good.
