Description(CNN) — The Senate has unanimously passed a bill that makes animal cruelty a federal felony.
The PACT Act -- which stands for Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture -- was approved by the Senate on Tuesday. The bipartisan legislation, which passed the House last month, expands a previous law passed in 2010.

"There's no place in a civilized society for maiming and torturing animals - period," said Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, who is a co-sponsor of the Senate bill.
