SUPPORT LOGANS LAW

      wales, MI

Logan is a sweet 11 yr old husky owned by Matt and Nancy Falk of Goodells Michigan. One night in mid March he suffered chemical burns to his face, Matt tells the story of what ...happened to Logan: 
 
I had put Logan in his own kennel at 11;00 PM, when I returned the in morning at 9 AM. I saw the bright red scaring on his muzzle. I took him directly to Wadhams Road Animal Clinic were he was looked at right away. He was treated and given meds and sent home to be cared for . The burn continued to spread over the following 3 days. After many weeks Logan was on the road to recovery, But sadly due to complications Logan lost his fight in July 2012 & quietly passed away at my feet while working on is LOGAN'S LAW page." 

Because of Logans ordeal, Matt and Nancy have made it their mission to get Michigan Senate bills 378, 386, 603, 604 & 605. passed into law. These bills would create an animal abuse data base for the state . If passed Logan's Law would be the FIRST statewide animal abuser registry in the nation!

"Even though Logans attack was a terrible thing, we have a chance to turn this into something positive for animals all over the state, maybe even the country. Every fire starts from a single spark" ~Matt Falk

      What these people did to that poor dog is wrong and so many abuse animals and something more has to be done to protect them!

      We adopted a rescue dog who had been abused. Just a sweet little mixed Bichon. She has a burn on her back, damaged foot, and had broken teeth, possibly from trying to chew her way out of a crate. She was found full of urine, starving, and was treated for parasites. Now she is our beautiful little angel. We have photos of when the shelter got her and the difference is astounding. Love our Mitzi. Some people just should not have or be around animals. Arlene

      I am an animal lover to my core,I currently have a rescue dog "Buddy":-) and recently rescued two sickly kittens from a barn down the road. My heart was so saddened when I read Logan's story:( I have always wanted to volunteer/work with animals, I believe every animal should know what it feels like to be loved :-) Those who are callous and heartless enough to be able to hurt an innocent animal need to be punished and definitely should not ever be allowed to adopt or own any animal!!
