Desmond's Law Gets National Recognition

November 8, 2017

Desmond’s Law is being recognized more and more across the country as a real success in protecting dogs and cats from cruelty. This op-ed written by my good friend, UConn Law Professor Jessica Rubin, was published just the other day by the Los Angeles Times and is being distributed by the Associated Press to other newspapers in the U.S. and around the world. Since Professor Rubin and I worked together to pass Desmond’s law in 2016, advocates have been appointed in 16 cases – all involving dogs and cats who were victims of cruelty. Click this link to read the op-ed.
