HARRISBURG - Oprah is expected to go to bat for Pennsylvania's dogs today. In a special rebroadcast of an episode of
The Oprah Winfrey Show
that aired last month, the nation's leading talk-show host will urge Pennsylvania viewers to contact their lawmakers in support of recently introduced animal-welfare legislation.
Winfrey also is planning to read excerpts from a letter sent by Gov. Rendell asking her to help in his effort to tighten restrictions on commercial breeding kennels and toughen state anti-cruelty laws.
