Montgomery County has a new commission to investigate and prevent animal cruelty.
It was created under an executive order by County Executive Matt Ossenfort.
This comes less than two months after dozens of dogs were removed from a kennel in Root.
The new commission will be responsible for looking into puppy mills and making sure animals have proper shelter following a natural disaster.
Law enforcement officers, animal professionals and county leaders will all be on the commission.
