Animal welfare round-up

A slew of new animal welfare laws hitting the books around the U.S.. Here's a sampling:

- County legislators unanimously passed a law Tuesday night establishing a registry of those convicted of abusing animals after lead sponsor Bryan Clenahan urged his colleagues to make Albany County "a real leader in the fight against animal abuse."

The Times Union reports...

Columbus, Ohio - A law to increase criminal penalties against operators at kennels who abuse animals is set for a final vote by the Ohio House.

WTRF-TV has more on "Nitro's Law"...

Sacramento, California - Among the long list of bills just signed into California law by Governor Brown, there are several which will make the State a better, safer place for animals.
