On Friday, August 9, the Flagler Humane Society hosted a “Town Howl” event to recognize local leaders in animal welfare. During the 2019 Florida state legislative session, state lawmakers passed legislation to ensure veterinarians can report evidence of animal cruelty to law enforcement.
The event recognized two local officials who have supported animal welfare over the years. State. Rep. Paul Renner (R-Palm Coast) was vital in the passage of this lifesaving measure that will help protect animals from abuse and neglect. Flagler County Attorney Al Hadeed was also honored for his years of representing our officers in their rescues of animals from abuse.
Attending the event were members of the humane society and animal welfare community along with local mayors, commissioners and the Flagler County Sheriff. Also in attendance were FACA attorney Diana Ferguson and Jen Hobgood from ASPCA.
