The fight for animal rights took a giant leap forward in 2014.

According to President and CEO of Cleveland’s APL, several major corporations, such as, Nestle, Starbucks, Tyson and Smithfield began demanding humane farming practices from suppliers.

The Oregon Supreme Court passed a landmark ruling that dictated animals be treated as victims, the same as human beings.

Harvey said there has been a national push to eliminate gas chambers as a means of euthanasia for pets.

The news, however, was not all good.  Goddard’s Law, which would have made it a felony in Ohio to commit acts of cruelty against companion animals, failed to pass.  Supporters pledged to try again in 2015.
