HSUS Junior Committee
Katy Mayerson (Chair)
Proceeds from To the Rescue! New York will be used to help the Animal Rescue Team save thousands more lives in the coming year from natural disasters or cruelties such as puppy mills, animal fighting operations, hoarding, or neglect. Your support will also help with public relations and outreach to educate, inform, and galvanize the public; the passage of stronger animal protection laws with increased penalties; and partnerships with law enforcement to capture and prosecute offenders.
