Last Thursday night DH and I attended an event sponsored by Animal Folks, a national group that has programs that oppose animal cruelty and use the justice system to work to protect animals. We viewed a documentary, Dog By Dog, exposing the states with the most puppy mills. After the film several people from Minnesota, Missouri, and Pennsylvania, who are actively engaged in animal law reform on many different levels, spoke about their roles (legislators, lawyers, volunteers and the film producer) and answered questions. Not confined to dogs and cats, the group is involved in protecting agricultural and farm animals, too. The statistics are astounding and animals need our protection. To learn more, go to this MN Animal Folks site.
This sweet service animal quietly joined the group with her owner, sitting and then lying across the auditorium steps.
