Animal rights are everybody's rights. There is no excuse for animal cruelty and those who commit such a disgusting crime should be punished. The first Tuesday of June this year is Animal Advocacy Day. Animal Advocacy Day is a lobbying event at the New York State Capitol dedicated to lobbying against animal cruelty and to strengthen Buster's Law.
NYS Animal Advocacy Day has its own Facebook page where updates are given as to what legislation has passed and what is on the docket for the future. This year, “Kirby & Quigley’s Law” is the main attraction. “Kirby & Quigley’s Law” was named after two Montgomery County dogs who were killed during a burglary last winter that is still an unsolved case. Several lobbyists, politicians, servicemen, attorneys, and more have been pushing for this law to be passed in the Assembly.
This year, advocates, including Steve Caporizzo, were present to show their support and share their knowledge. Updates about the turn out of today's events will be posted as more information comes about.
