A bill has just been introduced in New York that would allow shelters access to animals that would otherwise be destroyed. The Companion Animal and Rescue Act (CAARA) is based on similar laws that were passed in California and Delaware with bipartisan support and would include language that would mandate access to shelters by qualified rescues and establish better standards of care for shelter animals.

3. Tell Sheryl Crow Not to Support Rodeo Cruelty
Sheryl Crow, who has publicly supported campaigns to keep our wild horses on the range is receiving criticism from Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) and animal lovers for plans to perform at the Cheyenne Frontier Days in Wyoming on July 22 and donating money from the show to the Cloud Foundation, an organization dedicated to saving mustangs.
SHARK’s calling Crow out on the hypocrisy of condoning the abuse of some animals, in order to save others. The Cloud Foundation issued a statement saying they would be grateful for her donation, and added that the rodeo doesn’t use mustangs.
Sign the petition asking Sheryl Crow not to support rodeo cruelty.
