Friends and Colleagues:
"It is time for all of us to lift our voices for
those who cannot speak for themselves."
Oreo, an abused dog, was needlessly
killed by the ASPCA.
This beautiful sentiment was written by Gail Longstaff,
the President of No More Homeless Pets of Kansas City, in
support of Oreo's Law. Oreo's Law, named after an abused dog
killed in New York City despite the offer of a No Kill
sanctuary to save her life, will make it illegal for any
shelter in New York to kill an animal when a qualified
rescue group is willing to save that animal's life.
If it succeeds in New York, it could prove to be a model
for the rest of the nation. That is why the most progressive
voices in animal sheltering from around the country are
speaking up in favor of Oreo's Law, including Michael
Mountain, the founder of Best Friends, Bonney Brown, Susanne
Kogut, Mike Fry, and others.
You can learn more about Oreo's Law and read their
letters of support; and you can find out why the ASPCA, the
agency which killed Oreo, is trying to derail this needed
lifesaving reform. Go to my "Oreo's Law" page by
