Patricks Law in New Jersey.  http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2013/08/christie_signs_patricks_law_to_increase_animal_cruelty_penalties.html

Gov Christie signs Patricks Law to Increase animal cruelty penalties.  It was in March, 2011 when Patrick, a reddish brown pitbull, was starved and dumped down a Newark apartment building trash chute and left for dead. At barely 19 pounds, the emaciated dog was brought to the Garden State Veterinary Specialists in Tinton Falls and nursed back to health. Patrick has made a full recovery and is now being fostered by Patricia Smillie-Scavelli, the administrator at the vet hospital. There is an ongoing civil suit between the City of Newark and Associated Humane Societies, which claims custody of the dog. Patrick will remain with Smillie-Scavelli until the legal matter is resolved. (Video by Andre Malok / The Star-Ledger).
