Local Residents are Invited to
“Yappy Hour” Pet Rally
Local pets and their owners are invited to take part in
the first-ever “Yappy Hour: Be Kind to Pets” pet rally in Gettysburg on
April 17. The event will offer an opportunity to help pets and owners
socialize with each other, as well as offering information on legislative
efforts that are underway to better protect animals against mistreatment and
abuse. Picnic-style food will be provided by the Butcher Block.
The rally will be held at the Gettysburg Recreation
Center and Dog Park from 4 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Participants are requested
to keep all dogs leashed and provide adequate food, water and waste disposal
supplies for their pets.
The rally will be preceded by a joint hearing of the
Senate Majority Policy Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee to study
Senate Bill 373, legislation I have introduced to prevent household pets and
shelter animals from living in inhumane conditions.
Individuals who are interested in participating should
RSVP to Melissa Knepper in my office by calling (717) 772-2929. I hope to
see you there!
