     Come join me on June 7th in Albany for the 6th annual Animal Advocacy Day sponsored by NYS Senator Phil Boyle and NYS Assemblyman Jim Tedisco. Animal Advocacy Day is an event that was created to help strengthen the animal cruelty laws in NY. It’s a non-partisan event designed to further protect our pets and wildlife from abuse and cruelty. There will be many people there to help educate and speak out on behalf of animals, discussing ways we can help protect them, and lending support to strengthening laws like “Buster’s Law” which made animal cruelty a felony in NY.
    I also believe in protection through education. With any animal it’s always good to do your research before getting one. Animals require a large commitment and not everyone is up to it. Should you find that you can’t care for your pet any longer, there's always people who will rescue your unwanted animal instead of simply neglecting it and having it suffer. In addition, to help stop potential abuse, you should contact your local authorities if you see neglect or animal cruelty taking place.
    Legendary animal educator Jack Hanna once told me, the most interesting thing he has learned from animals is “respect”. It’s an important lesson that we should all keep in mind. Whether we’re dealing with people or animals, we should always be respectful and treat them with kindness.
