Libre the Ambassador visits HU

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology is thrilled to welcome Pennsylvania rockstar rescue dog Libre the Ambassador to campus today.

Libre is visiting HU on his way to PA Humane Lobby Day at the state Capitol!

During the summer of 2016, Libre, only an eight-week old puppy was left to die in the sun and dirt of a Lancaster County farm. He was so weak, he couldn’t lift his head, eat, or drink. Covered in awful skin infections, Libre was only given hours to live.

As you can see, he was rescued, nursed back to health, and his story went viral! Governor Tom Wolf even signed an animal welfare law, dubbed Libre’s Law, in his honor! Libre is #HUProud!

He is pictured Above with HU Staff, from left to right, Justin Dettig, Thomas Mcmanus, Wendy Clark, Beverly Magda, Lauren Edgell, Jacqueline Barnett, Steven Infanti, and Rebekah Low. Libre also stopped by for a visit with HU Associate VP of Human Resources Ben Allatt.
