But having a forever home wasn't enough. Guido and Libre decided to campaign for tougher laws against animal cruelty in Pennsylvania. And this week, that dream became a reality.
"No one should be allowed to get away with cruel animal treatment. No one should be allowed to get away with the neglect of animals," Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf said when he signed Libre's Law, which increases penalties for animal abuse in the state. Libre's paw print was placed beside his signature. "Now thanks to this statute, they won't be able to get away with it."
