Guest will be: Debbie Darino- Animal Rights Activist and Creator for "Ponce's Law" in Florida



Topic will be: Fl "Ponce's Law"-new amendments & 2021 Legislation HB 731 Animal Cruelty 

A puppy named Ponce was the inspiration for the law. Ponce, a 9-month-old Labrador retriever, was found dead in his owner's back yard in Volusia County. 

When the officers found the small body huddled in the dark, lying next to a bloodied fence, Ponce’s injuries were “consistent with being hit by a car. He had a punctured lung, fractured and broken jaw, fractured rib and internal bleeding.”

Following approval by the Florida Legislature, Gov. Rick Scott signed Ponce's Law in March 2018 http://laws.flrules.org/2018/87
