Patrick Provided Inspiration for “Patrick’s Law” Increasing Penalties for Animal Abuse

Patrick the Pit Bull, the inspiration for Patrick’s Law sponsored by Senator Tom Kean (R-Union, Somerset, Morris), was inducted into the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association (NJVMA) Animal Hall of Fame on Sunday, March 9, 2014.

“Patrick’s comeback is inspiring, and he did not suffer in vain,” said Kean. “Patrick’s Law now provides a substantial deterrent to animal abuse in New Jersey.”

Watch the video below detailing Patrick’s journey from near death following horrific abuse to full recovery and his new life as a happy, healthy and playful dog living in a loving home.
