DECATUR, Ill. – State Rep. Scherer, D-Decatur, supported a number of measures protecting dogs, cats, and other domestic animals, earning the highest rating from the Illinois Humane Society (IHS).

“The animals in our lives bring us such joy, and we owe it to them to be their voices,” said Scherer. “From protecting the health of cats and dogs, to cracking down on disreputable breeders, there’s a lot of work to be done, and I’m proud to stand with advocates for our four-legged friends.”

  • Senate Bill 1882
  • Senate Bill 1883
