I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Beatrice Friedlander, at the All About Animals Rescue's 2019 Spay-Tacular Benefit for Animals earlier this month.  Beatrice is the President of Attorneys for Animals, and she received an award for outstanding service to animals, and the animal rescue community at the event.  While enjoying a delightful cup of coffee later in the evening, I thanked Beatrice and her husband Donald, for their advocacy of critters here in the great state of Michigan.

We had a pleasant conversation, and Beatrice asked me all kinds of questions, while I did the same to her!  Every time I am involved with any program or volunteer experience with All About Animals Rescue, I come away having gained more than I gave.

Every state has their animal and wildlife problems, and as we each try to effect change through our own actions, it's good to know that Attorneys for Animals is also on guard.

Thank you, Beatrice and Donald, and the rest of Attorneys for Animals!

  6. Animal welfare needs lawyers, definitely. Someone has to speak for them, who will be heard.
