INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) — Senate Bill 474 passed the house unanimously Tuesday.

As we previously reported the bill would help prevent animal abuse by forbidding convicted abusers from owning pets.

It's authored by Senator Ron Alting and supported by the Tippecanoe County Animal Advisory Board.

The board looks at local animal cruelty cases to help educate law enforcement and the public to determine how to make positive change.

The bill will now head to Governor Eric Holcomb's desk.
