As our nation becomes aware and moves toward more humane treatment of pets and stray animals, the tragic story of Tiger the cat is pivotal in the creation and enforcement of animal cruelty laws.
At Pawsitively Humane and our specialty efforts at Riverfront Cats, we know first hand how these laws are broken daily yet very hard to prove. Sadly in this case, a veterinarian killed a neighborhood pet cat and bragged about it openly on social media. Yet she was not indicted.
The good news is that outrage was immediate, international, and concerned residents continue to follow this case closely with great interest across social media platforms, blogs, news forums, etc. This case will effect current and future laws.
This website will track the progress events as it plays out in the State of Texas, and in the online and offline world of animal advocates. Follow us on social media to stay updated on unfolding events!
