Pennsylvania Senate passed several laws on Wednesday to prevent animal abuse in the state reports Pennlive.

The laws were included in a single omnibus bill. Passing of the proposals comes after a puppy was found in severely critical condition at a farm in Lancaster.

The puppy, which has been named Libre by its rescuers was found “emaciated, dehydrated and barely breathing, with rotting and infected skin that was also infested with maggots,” according to Pennlive.

The puppy along with the mother were surrendered by the owners and nursed back to health.

Reports indicate that the owner will not be prosecuted because it could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the owner intended to harm the animal.

Several countries have laws protecting animals’ rights. Thailand passed an animal protection law in 2014 that entails a two year prison sentence and a fine of up to THB40.000 for the criminal offense.
