FRANKFORT, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A rally planned for February will aim to pass stricter laws on animal cruelty in Kentucky.
The animal rights organization Kentuckians Vote for Animals announced that a rally will take place on February 6 at 1:30 p.m. at the State Capitol building in Frankfort.
According to a release from the organization, the rally will show Kentucky lawmakers that the laws must improve to protect animals from cruelty and neglect.
A report from the Animal Legal Defense Fund ranks Kentucky as the worst state for animal protection laws for the 12th year in a row.
"We must come together as a state and demand better animal protection," said Cynthia Criswell, a board member for Kentuckians Vote for Animals.
