I Am Honored and I Thank You

So often, I’m asked – how does spcaLA advocate on behalf of abandoned and abused animals?  Preventing cruelty to animals through education and advocacy is part of the spcaLA Mission and something I take seriously as a voice for the voiceless animals. 

As YOUR spcaLA President, I often have the opportunity to travel and speak to advocates, colleagues, students, law enforcement, and law makers about animal welfare, animal cruelty, and the cutting edge programs of YOUR spcaLA. 

I am proud, humbled and honored to have been invited to the Center for Animal Law Studies at Northwestern School of Law of Lewis & Clark College as its first Distinguished Visiting Animal Advocate.   Next week, I will be lecturing to the students enrolled in the J.D. program as well as the world’s first advanced LL.M. (Masters of Laws) program in animal law.

There, I will share lessons learned about prosecuting animal cruelty – lessons learned at YOUR spcaLA.

Help to add to our volume – speak out against animal cruelty, donate, volunteer and share the work of YOUR spcaLA to help abandoned and abused animals in our community and beyond.
Thank you for this opportunity.
