MONT ALTO, Pa. (WDVM) — Knick Knack Pittie Pack, a nonprofit dog rescue organization, is asking for the community’s help in re-locating 11 dogs. “We never dreamed it would be this hard to find someplace to put 11 dogs temporarily while we continue our search for the right property,” Dawn Backer said, the president and co-founder. Knick Knack Pittie Pack has been rescuing dogs since 2012. With new management taking over a Waynesboro facility where the dogs are housed, rent became too high to maintain the rescue. After a six-week notice was given, the nonprofit says they’re desperate for help while they look for a new facility. “We’re trying to think positive, and think that something will reach out to help, something will come through and that everything will be ok,” Dawn said. While trying to find a new home for their furry friends and to continue their mission, they also have to work around zoning issues and ordinances that fit the criteria for the animals. “That’s what the difficulty is right now, is trying to find an area that will allow this, and this is only a temporary thing,” Wolfgang Backer says, the co-founder and treasurer. The couple has brought in as many dogs as they could into their own home, even with no plan right now the organization tells us the dogs will not be euthanized. “We will reach out to area rescues that we know that we have worked with in the past to see if they can help out and give us a temporary hold until we figure something out, and no they will not be euthanized,” Dawn said. At this time they were given until till August first to relocate the animals. Anyone that wants to help can donate to the nonprofit by going to their website or Facebook page.

WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) – Furry friends all across the country could soon have new protections from the federal government – and lawmakers say it’s about time. The effort to make animal abuse a federal crime is getting a lot of support on both sides of the aisle. Congressional lawmakers say with all the division in government, there’s nothing that unites people like protecting animals. They’re hoping that’s enough to get a new bill passed into law. The Prevent Animal Cruelty and Torture Act – or PACT Act – would turn trafficking animals across state lines into a federal crime. It would also be a federal crime to create online animal torture videos. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) and Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL) worked together to author the bill. It now has more than 270 co-sponsors from both parties. “The bill isn’t just one of the most widely-supported pieces of legislation on the hill, it is also one of the most bipartisan,” Rep. Deutch said. The bill also has massive support from citizens. High school student Sydney Helfan was able to collect 600,000 signatures online in support of the act. “It’s really amazing to see everyone come together,” she said. Rep. Buchanan says he’s doing this not just for animals, but for the people who love them too. “A lot of them are very passionate about their animals,” he said. Animal abuse laws currently vary by state with no good way for federal officials to get involved. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), who used to be an FBI agent, says animal abuse often goes hand-in-hand with other federal crimes. “One of the things that I saw every single day was the nexus between animal cruelty and a lot of other federal violations,” he said. Lawmakers hope this bill will help federal authorities bring an end to those violations. The bill needs 290 co-sponsors to be assured it gets taken up for a vote. Its authors are confident that will happen.
