After learning about the Asian dog Meat trade back in March of 2016. I began to become involved volunteering for non-profits that focus on animal rights. In addition to environmental issues this has become a passion for me. I currently work with the following animal rights organizations listed below:
Latest Project – BE MY VOICE – help evidence dogs like Shadow escape the cycle of abuse that continue even after being rescued.
Campaign: A facebook group was launched called “Be My voice” and a Public Service Video was made. This will be an ongoing campaign to show the abuse cycle that animals that are confiscated by the authorities for extreme abuse face. It is about a broken system where dogs are keep in confinement for years pending trial then euthanized, or returned to their owners.
