    A HOUSE RESOLUTION to recognize and honor the work of Micah Staub with needy dogs and other animals.

    Whereas, Micah Staub is a twelve-year-old sixth grader of Fort Wayne; and,

    Whereas, as the son of a veterinarian, at a young age Micah was made to feel comfortable around animals of all kinds, helping his family care for needy animals the family took in, which included horses rescued from slaughter, dogs and roosters rescued from illegal fighting operations, as well as countless dogs rescued from puppy mills; and,

    Whereas, Micah has dedicated much of his young life to caring especially for those dogs rescued from puppy mills, with whom he feels a special connection, whose suffering he feels acutely, and whose happiness and comfort are to him the best reward for his work; and,

    Whereas, following the raid on a Bloomfield puppy mill and the seizure of more than one hundred dogs from it in December of 2010, the Staub family took in approximately thirty of the rescued animals, and since that time Micah has made it his special assignment to walk all the dogs daily; and,

    Whereas, Micah's kindness and commitment has already been recognized and profiled in several of its publications by the Humane Society of the United States: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:

    SECTION 1. That the Indiana House of Representatives officially recognizes the work of Micah Staub in caring for the abandoned and needy animals of Indiana, thanks him for his commitment and dedication to his neighbors and his community, and congratulates him on his success in helping those who can least help themselves.
    SECTION 2. That the Principal Clerk of the House transmit a copy of this resolution to Micah Staub, and the Humane Society of the United States.
