LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - March 12, 2012. Logan, a loving 11-year-old husky, is viciously attacked in his own kennel.
"Logan was attacked for no reason. We don't know why," remembers Matthew Falk, the founder of Logan's Law.
Someone burned his muzzle with battery acid. The burn spread, ultimately reaching his liver and kidneys. "He put his head on my foot and then he passed away," Falk says.
Logan didm't survive, but his memory lives on through shirts, thousands of Facebook fansand a set of bills by Senator Rick Jones that would block known animal abusers from adopting.
"As a former sheriff, I can tell you that many people who abuse animals eventually graduate to people. There's been many cases throughout history," Sen. Jones says.
The legislation would stop animal abusers from adopting animals by giving shelters access to a person's criminal history for free.
Andrew Thompson, an MSU medical student, admitted to torturing and killing 11 dogs. Last year, a judge sentenced him to five years probation.
This new legislation aims to keep people like Thompson from harming more innocent animals.
"It would be shameful not to go through with this," said Jamie McAloon-Lampman, the director for the Ingham Co. Animal Shelter.
But not every-one came out in support.
"For us, it's more of a financial thing. Nobody here is supporting animal cruelty, but we want resources to be used in the most effective way," said Cindy Cooke, who opposes the legislation.
Still, Falk says he'll continue fighting along-side supporters who believe this bill can save animals.
"It's a great feeling to know that this is going to change and make a real difference for the pets in Michigan and hopefully the nation at some time," says Falk.
Jones says he hopes this set of bills becomes law by the end of the year.
Falk says this all helps bring justice and closure for Logan.
