Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding recognized Love Your Dog Month in Pennsylvania, reminding dog owners that a dog license is key to the safety and security of their dogs, their families and their communities. Sec. Redding was joined by Rachael Eshleman and her dog Riley, who were victims of a dog attack in 2018, and others whose work and lives intersect daily with the department's work to enforce Pennsylvania's dog law."Rachael Eshleman and Riley should never have been attacked," Secretary Redding said. "The work of our dog wardens helps ensure that no one else suffers from the terrifying injuries caused by an irresponsible dog owner and a dangerous dog."The most important responsibility is to license your dog. That ensures that they won't end up in a shelter if they get lost, but it also ensures that dog wardens will continue to protect our communities and the animals we all love."
