Nevada’s New Cooney's Law And Almost 100 Saved Dogs

A hoarder from Burien, Washington has had one hundred dogs remover from two different places by the King County Sheriffs and the animal control officers after they received a tip. The sad part is that ten of the dogs had to be killed, so why did this person have so many dogs and no one ever said anything until the other day.

Now the Regional Animal Services of King County and the Burien's Community Animal Resource and Education Society are looking for help in donations and adoptions of these dogs.

Nevada’s new law called Cooney’s Law will be going in effect tomorrow morning which makes aggravated and intentional animal cruelty a felony crime.

A shelter manager for the SPCA of Northern Nevada named Holly Natwora said: Passing that law is a huge accomplishment, Cooney put a story and a face on the bill and I think that's why it passed. She didn't die in vain. She has a legacy now.

This law all started because an animal abuser named Raymond Rios cut his dogs stomach open with a box cutter.

Anybody who does something this sick should be locked up for a long time.
